4 BEST Blood Pressure Supplements?!
You can ignore plenty of so-called health measurements (the cholesterol myth comes to mind)… but your blood pressure number isn’t one of them.
Without a doubt, high blood pressure (hypertension) is one of the leading risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
Heavy-duty prescription drugs can reduce your blood pressure (BP). However, there’s often a HEFTY price to pay in the form of side effects.
Fortunately, there are other ways to get your BP under control that don’t force you to rely on Big Pharma’s drugs for the rest of your life.
For example, the following four nutrients work in different ways to maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
Magnesium helps reduce blood pressure because it naturally boosts nitric oxide. Nitric oxide signals your blood vessels to relax (vasodilation), which improves blood flow.
The result is reduced blood pressure.
One study found that supplementing with 300 mg of elemental magnesium daily for one month significantly lowered blood pressure.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) helps reduce blood pressure by producing ATP or adenosine triphosphate (your cell’s energy source) and supporting mitochondrial function. These processes allow your heart to run more efficiently.
Research shows that supplementing with CoQ10 lowers systolic blood pressure.
Garlic works in a unique way to keep blood pressure levels under control. The herb blocks the production of angiotensin II, enhancing the bioavailability of nitric oxide, making it MORE effective.
One remarkable study showed that, when people with hypertension supplemented with garlic, it reduced systolic BP by 8-10 mmHg and diastolic BP by 5-6 mmHg. This translates to an impressive 16 to 40 percent plunge in the risk of a cardiovascular event!
Finally, potassium can help reduce blood pressure by regulating fluid balance.
Research reveals that when people with hypertension supplement with potassium, it can lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and reduce the risk of a stroke.
If you’re ready to jump off the prescription drug merry-go-round and manage your blood pressure NATURALLY, these four supplements are an excellent place to start.
Just be sure to work WITH your doctor to make these changes if you’re already taking BP meds.
P.S. Supplements are great. But they aren’t the only option. Recent research revealed an easy “Diaphragm Dumbbell” trick that ALSO lowers blood pressure. This simple, drug-free solution only takes five minutes a day and can work as well as drugs.
