High Blood Pressure Remedies and DASH Diet

High blood pressure remedies that work along with the DASH Diet

high blood pressure remediesIf you are taking prescription drugs to lower high blood pressure, did your doctor tell you about high blood pressure remedies that can help? What about the DASH diet? Was that ever mentioned during your visit?

If I were asked to list the top five herbs or supplements to take, it would have to be coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), fish oil, garlic, magnesium and vitamin C.

Why these five? Because there are good research evidence that they all work to treat high blood pressure. Combining them may offer much better results than trying to pick just one or two of them to take.

Antioxidant Benefits to the Blood Vessels

Not only do they lower blood pressure by causing blood vessels to relax, many of them such as CoQ10 and vitamin C have antioxidant benefits that can prevent cells from being damaged by free radicals.

Oxygen free radicals are a part of life; actually they are the byproduct of metabolism.

Normally the body can manage those that are produced but if not, they are left to damage blood vessels. This weakens them and leads to hardening of the arteries and this can lead to increased blood pressure.

The DASH Diet Guidelines

Anyone suffering from high blood pressure needs to know about the DASH Diet. In a nutshell, the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) focuses on cutting back on foods that are high on saturated fats, total fats and cholesterol.

As well, it suggests eating more fruits and vegetables. It also stresses the importance of keeping daily salt intake to about 2,300 mg compared to the typical amount of 4,200 mg.
