I’ve talked about the blood pressure problems in the past…
How it’s called the “silent killer” because there are no real symptoms letting you know you have blood pressure problems unless you take your readings throughout the day.
I’ve talked about how blood pressure can cause serious heart issues.
Blood pressure problems can also cause fatigue, brain fog, and memory problems.
Blood pressure is also known to cause erectile problems and prostate issues for guys.
In fact, blood pressure problems also accelerate hair loss.
Simply put, bad blood pressure accelerates aging. And one of the primary causes of problems with blood pressure is the negative changes in your hormones, due to aging.
However, it’s also very fixable and you do NOT need drugs.
In fact, a combination of 7 specific fruits and vegetables can help support healthy blood pressure. You can eat these foods separately or you can blend them into a juice or smoothie.
As you know, vegetables are always part of a healthy diet. A couple of my favorites for lowering blood pressure are kale and spinach.
The next vegetable to add to the blender is celery. They have almost no calories. However, they’re great for lowering blood pressure because they work similar to calcium channel blocking drugs but with NO side effects.
Unfortunately, you do need to consume a lot of it to get maximum benefits for healthy blood pressure.
For this reason, I take a special form of celery seed extract in a pill, 300 mg daily, which is the equivalent of taking 50 lbs of a celery stalk.
It’s clinically proven to work, it’s easy and convenient.
Tomatoes contain Lycopene, a substance found in the tomato seeds. It helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol, so a double benefit. I like the little baby grape tomatoes.
However, if you’re not a fan of tomatoes, then you can take Lycopene extract of about 40 mg daily.
And the last vegetable I recommend is beets because they are high in nitric oxide, which helps open and expand your blood vessels and thus, helps support healthy blood pressure.
This is similar to how the amino acids Arginine and Citrulline work.
You can eat beets of course or add a little bit of beet juice into your blender.
Out of all the fruits, berries are one of the healthiest. Their thin skin allows more nutrients to be formed from the sun and thus, they’re very high in flavonoids.
Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are very good. However, the most powerful by far for supporting healthy blood pressure is Hawthorn Berries.
Unfortunately, Hawthorn Berries are hard to come by and they’re not as readily available as the other berries. So, I actually take the extract form in a pill at 900 mgs daily.
Again, it’s easy, convenient, and costs a fraction of the price of buying the actual Hawthorn berries. Of course, the berries taste much better than taking a pill.
Grapes, similar to berries, have thin skin and are rich in health-protecting antioxidants, including resveratrol and flavonoids. These antioxidants are found mainly in the skin, stem, leaf, and most abundantly, in the SEEDS of the grapes, rather than in their pulp.
Dark red and purple grapes have higher antioxidants than white or green grapes.
And this is a primary reason why red wine has some blood pressure effects – because of the grapes.
The main problem with grape juice is that it’s high in calories and sugars, which can spike up your insulin levels, which can then indirectly increase your blood pressure.
So, keep an eye on the calories – don’t consume more than 1 cup daily.
Or you can do what I do – take grape seed extract at 300 mgs daily. It’s very potent, clinically proven, easy, and convenient… and has no calories.
Finally, let’s talk about one of my favorite fruits, especially when it comes to healthy blood pressure and that’s Pomegranates.
They taste great, especially with a little bit of salt.
Unfortunately, it’s a very messy fruit and it’s time-consuming to take apart each of the seeds. So, it’s easier to just drink the juice.
However, just like grape juice, it is high in calories. Make sure you limit it to just one cup daily and read the labels to make sure it doesn’t contain any added sugars. Just pure juice.
Alternatively, you can take Pomegranate Extract at about 200 mgs daily – which is what I do.
Again, I’m all about convenience and ease. If it’s too difficult, I won’t stick to it long-term and that’s just how most of us are.
So there you have it – the 7 best vegetables and fruits for supporting healthy blood pressure. You can make it into one big juice or smoothie and drink it daily.
However, if you don’t want to go through all the trouble of buying, blending, and cleaning every day, which most people don’t or simply don’t stick to after a week or two… then just visit this special link and use the same natural formula my family and I use for healthy blood pressure naturally.
It contains all of these ingredients and added vitamins and minerals. It’s clinically researched. It’s easy, convenient, has no calories, and best of all – it has over a 10+ year proven track record for effectiveness and safety.
However, no matter what you do – please make sure you do something to support healthy blood pressure today!
