Natural Remedies For High Blood Pressure - Try These Four
Foods  
by Hartmann W. Koenig
for high pressure is not only the fact that they can save you big bucks otherwise
spent on medications. These remedies also generally have negligible or no side
effects. And they don't present the problem of mixing dangerously with any
medications you may be taking for other conditions.

So let's take a look at some of these natural remedies for high blood pressure...

Garlic

For years, garlic has been touted as being good for you. The good news is that
recent research has reinforced garlic's positive effect on high blood pressure. A
regular regimen of garlic powder in doses between 600mg and 900mg a day was
shown to drop the systolic pressure by 8.4mmHg and the diastolic pressure by
7.3mmHg in those people who had a hypertension condition.

Coriander

Coriander is a rich resource for calcium, iron, potassium and more. In fact, a
tablespoon of dried coriander contains approximately 80 mg of potassium. Because
of these nutrients, it's often used to reduce stress and hypertension and serves as an
antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. When combined with fresh curry leaves and
consumed as a juice, it's most effective. The recommendation is a full glass three
times a day for one to two months, after which you can reduce your intake to two
glasses a day.

Onions

A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition reported that quercetin, a
compound usually associated with onions may actually reduce high blood pressure by
approximately 5 mmHg. Quercetin is a flavonol, which is commonly known for its
antioxidant properties. The study found that a daily supplement of 730 milligrams of
quercetin over a 28-day period resulted in a significant drop in the blood pressure of
the participants. Varieties such as Western Yellow, New York Bold, and Northern Red
onions have the richest concentration of quercetin.

Beetroot Juice

A recent study at The London School of Medicine found that drinking 500ml of
beetroot juice a day will significantly reduce pressure. It appears to be the dietary
nitrate in the beetroot juice that does the job. The results are nearly instantaneous,
within three to four hours after consuming the juice.

These are just a few of the natural remedies for high blood pressure, but a great
place to start if you're looking for an alternative to expensive medications that come
with side effects. Of course, you should always consult with your physician before
starting any alternative approach to controlling your hypertension.
