I couldn't write my January-March Newsletter without writing about something for your heart. I have covered cholesterol quick tips in the past so here we go with high blood pressure. The following are my suggestions for getting your blood pressure under control quickly: Reduce sodium intake - It amazes me how many people see sodium and don't realize that usually means SALT. Eliminating sodium (as much as possible) will have a profound impact on lowering your blood pressure. The government guidelines say 2000mg/day for an adult is fine. I say shoot for under 1000mg/day. De-stress - Stress is a major cause for high blood pressure and no drug is going to be the cure. Deep breathing, prayer, meditation, walking and other forms of exercise all work great to reduce stress levels. I sold my pharmacy because stress had my blood pressure up. I sold the store and my blood pressure went back to normal. Maybe you just need to quit your job like I did 12 years ago. ? Eat right - Decreasing processed foods and eating more whole foods like fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes and moderate amounts of animal protein will get your blood pressure moving in the right direction. Lose the weight - Research from years ago showed that for every 4 pounds (or so) you could see a 1.5mm decrease in blood pressure. This means that if your BP was 140/90 and you lost 20 pounds, your blood pressure may decrease to 132/82. Depending on what standards your doctor uses, you might not need any medication to treat your hypertension. Eliminate caffeine and nicotine - These stimulants cause your veins and arteries to constrict and directly affect your blood pressure. Stay clear from all forms of caffeine (except from green and white tea) Supplements with fast impact: The following are the supplements you should consider using to dramatically impact your blood pressure levels: Omega-3s from Fish - 3-grams minimum per day of Omega-3s
• CoQ10 or Ubiquinol - 100 mg per day
• Either M.D. Select Blood Pressure Formula, Blood Pressure Take Care or Advanced blood pressure balance
•Calcium and Magnesium supplements (or a good bone health supplement like Grow Bone System or Bone Strength) Again, these are the basic suggestions. The supplements mentioned above can have a significant impact in a month or two. Combine them with the lifestyle changes I've mentioned and you will have success in a much shorter timeframe. If you are currently being treated for hypertension, you should consult with your health care provider on the best way to wean yourself off of any medications. You should also make sure there are no interactions by using the safety checker on vitaminshoppe.com.
