Hypertension is a condition of abnormally high blood pressure. It also is a member of the cluster of metabolic syndrome associated with the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
High blood pressure can be acute or chronic. Acute high blood pressure most often occurs to people with sudden stress.
Sometimes, it can be caused by intense physical exercise. As the heart must pump harder to provide the needs of nutrients and oxygen.
Most cases of chronic high blood pressure are associated with an unhealthy lifestyle and chronic diseases such as kidney disease, leading to the onset of strokes and cardiovascular disease.
Epidemiologically, here are some natural remedies which will help you to lower high blood pressure, keeping it in the normal range of 130/80.
* Calcium and Magnesium
A combination of these 2 minerals with the right DOSAGES has a long and indisputable track record for normalizing blood pressure safely. Be sure only taking these compounds with a ratio of 2 to 1. Otherwise, this compound might cause irregular heartbeat.
* Mediterranean diet
A study found that people in Greece and Italy always have ideal blood pressure, because their diet contains more polyunsaturated fat, such as olive oil. If you can replace saturated fat in your diet with extra virgin oil, you could easily normalize your blood pressure.
* Reducing Salt intake
Salt is a mineral composed of sodium and chloride. You need only half a tablespoon a day, but we consume many times more than that every day causing high blood pressure and increasing the risk of early death.
Avoid processed meat, because it has been soaked in salt. Use little Ketchup, mustard, and soy sauce because they contain high amounts of salt.
If you smoke, you better quit. The nicotine in cigarettes and other tobacco products causes your blood vessels to constrict and your heart to beat faster, which temporarily raises your blood pressure.
Alcohol might cause a temporary rise in blood pressure in some people. If you have high blood pressure, you should reduce your daily intake of alcohol to 1-2 cups.
Stress may affect blood pressure. Managing stress, by relaxation techniques, such as yoga, lightweight exercise, aerobic exercise, can be healful.
Tomatoes provide about 80% of the lycopene in the world diet. In plants, lycopene protects the host against excessive photodamage and perform various functions in photosynthesis.
On finding a natural compound for the treatment of hypertension, researchers examined the tomato carotenoids such as lycopene anti-high blood pressure activity.
The double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study included patients with untreated hypertension individuals who received either 5, 15 and 30 mg lycopene or 15 mg of synthetic lycopene or a placebo over eight weeks.
* The effective doses of Tomato Nutrient Complex (TNC) that maintain normal blood pressure in untreated hypertensive individuals were 15 or 30 mg of lycopene associated with significant reductions in mean systolic blood pressure (SBP) compared to other treatments.
The results strongly suggested that only the TNC dose of 15 mg lycopene or higher have a beneficial effect on SBP in hypertension.
