Natural remedies for high blood pressure
Garlic extract can cause digestive upset and other side effects and can interact with medications, so it is important to talk to your doctor if you are considering taking it.
Fish oil and Omega-3 fatty acids
Fatty fish such as salmon and sardines are rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosapentaenoic acid (DHA), omega-3 fatty acids that play a role in blood pressure.
Drinking beet juice can help reduce high blood pressure, according to new research. Beets contain inorganic nitrates, components that increase nitric oxide.
Magnesium, a mineral found in green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, fish, whole grains, avocados, bananas and other foods, can moderately lower blood pressure, particularly in people with magnesium deficiency. In a report published in Hypertension, for example, researchers analyzed previously published clinical trials and found a small association between magnesium intake and lower blood pressure.
Diet and low sodium intake
Following a balanced diet that is low in sodium but loaded with plant foods rich in antioxidants can lower blood pressure. With an emphasis on vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy, whole grains, lean proteins, nuts and legumes, the Diets to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, red meat and sugar and is considered to be a dietary key to keep your heart healthy.
Consumption of green tea or black tea for four to 24 weeks was associated with a reduction in blood pressure, according to a study in the British Journal of Nutrition. Although both types of tea had a slight effect on blood pressure, the effect of green tea was slightly higher (possibly due to the higher antioxidant content).
Flavanols, a type of antioxidant found in cocoa and dark chocolate, can help with high blood pressure. Some research suggests that cocoa flavanols can increase the formation of nitric oxide in blood vessels, which results in dilation of blood vessels and decreased blood pressure.
