5 FAST Blood Pressure Fixes
One of the best things you can do for your heart is to manage your blood pressure.
Big Pharma insists you need drugs to tackle hypertension (high blood pressure) problems.
We know better than that.
Lifestyle factors like diet, exercise, and sleep all play a HUGE role in managing your blood pressure.
But for even MORE heart protection, a handful of supplements are proven to support healthier blood pressure levels.
Once you’re watching your diet, regularly exercising, and prioritizing healthy sleep, chances are you’ll see your blood pressure improve. But lots of folks still need a little extra heart support.
To ward off hypertension… and lower your heart attack and stroke risk… consider these five top-performing supplements.
This natural antioxidant supports better blood vessel function. And, of course, better vascular function means better blood pressure control.
Vitamin C is also involved in producing nitric oxide (NO), a compound that reduces blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels.
The vitamin enhances the bioavailability of NO, so more of it can be absorbed by your body. Plus, C raises the levels of a precursor of NO, allowing MORE of the compound to be produced.
If you want better blood pressure, eat more bananas (or avocados or broccoli).
Foods rich in potassium improve blood pressure by reducing sodium levels. And, of course, high sodium levels can increase BP.
A review published in 2018 showed that consuming more potassium lowered blood pressure and prevented cardiovascular events.
This pink pigmented compound is found in foods like tomatoes, cranberries, and watermelon. Lycopene reduces arterial stiffness, improves vascular function, and cuts the risk of cardiovascular disorders.
The nutrient also discourages the buildup of atherosclerosis-linked fat in your artery walls.
Magnesium has many effects on the body that are beneficial for blood pressure. The nutrient increases NO levels, improves blood flow, widens blood vessels, and promotes endothelial function.
Cocoa contains compounds that increase the production of NO, improving vasodilation. It’s also a good source of blood-pressure-friendly potassium and magnesium.
One study showed that consuming cocoa for just two weeks led to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
