Weird Drink SLASHES High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is BIG business.
One out of every three American adults has been diagnosed with high blood pressure (including maybe you or someone you love).
And since drugs don’t fix the problem, Big Pharma has MILLIONS of repeat customers who never get off their pills.
That’s quite a racket… but we don’t need to fall for it anymore.
Because there’s a simple beverage that’s been proven to do WONDERS for your blood pressure.
But if you’re like lots of my patients, you’re probably not drinking it.
Fermented foods just aren’t a part of our typical American diet anymore.
And we’re missing out on a long list of their health benefits.
A key item in that list? Lower blood pressure.
A recent study showed that kefir (a fermented dairy drink) is able to lower blood pressure by helping the brain and gut communicate.
What do the brain and gut have to do with blood pressure?
A lot more than you’d think!
Research has shown that an imbalance in gut bacteria contributes to high blood pressure, while probiotics (which help rebalance the gut) can lower blood pressure.
Kefir can lower blood pressure by helping restore the balance of four key bacteria in the gut. And in the brain, kefir helps restore an enzyme that helps the nervous system function properly.
But even though this research focused specifically on kefir, this isn’t the only fermented food that can help promote a balanced gut and support overall good health.
Along with kefir, here are five additional fermented foods to consider adding to your diet:
Kombucha: This is another fermented drink that has been shown to restore good bacteria, boost immunity, and help with digestive issues.
Sauerkraut: Made from fermented cabbage (and a staple in many Thanksgiving dinners), sauerkraut is loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and K, and numerous minerals.
Kimchi: This is a Korean dish of fermented vegetables. Like other fermented foods, it helps with digestion and can improve heart health.
Pickles: This tasty garnish is loaded with active bacterial cultures and enzymes.
Yogurt: This snack is known to improve good bacteria in the gut, and has been shown to help with digestion and cardiovascular problems.
To a brighter day,

Heart disease, colon cancer, and diabetes are three of the killers of American seniors.

I don’t know why modern medicine is always trying to reinvent the wheel.

If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, you know there are certain foods you CAN’T have.

Because it fails to account for the protective...
