Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2015 -- High blood pressure, otherwise known as hypertension, is a condition that takes place when the arteries are subjected to extreme blood pressure on a regular basis while blood circulates throughout the body. The good news is that there are natural remedies people can use to fight or reduce the negative impact of the condition.
Experts reveal the healing foods, herbs and spices for high blood pressure. This medical condition can lead to a myriad of health problems if left uncontrolled or untreated. In recent scientific studies, it was found that the condition may be linked to dementia.
"Today, there is a variety of natural remedies available and one is an ancient spice called turmeric," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to healthcare providers, the normal B/P is below 120/80. Individuals with 120/80 to 139/89 blood pressure are in the pre-hypertension state. On the other hand, the B/P for hypertension is 140/90+. Hypertension can be broken down to essential and secondary classifications. The former refers to cases of high blood pressure that are directly linked to causes such as high stress, smoking and obesity. The latter is not associated with a root cause. Almost all cases of hypertension are essential.
There are natural ways to combat high blood pressure such as consuming beetroot juice, which has nitrate that aids in blood flow and reduces blood pressure. Cayenne pepper is also believed to be helpful because it is considered a natural vasodilator and the fastest acting food for hypertension.
According to research, cinnamon has also demonstrated some positive effects in individuals with hypertension. It was potentially due to its anti-inflammatory and insulin sensitivity enhancing properties. Research has also shown that coconut water, which is rich in potassium, can help manage hypertension. Food with omega-3s such as almonds and other nuts have monosaturated fats that can help reduce blood cholesterol levels. An anti-viral wonder food called garlic, which has a powerful compound allicin, has anti-hypertension benefits, too.
One of the most powerful therapeutic spices that is helpful in individuals suffering from hypertension is turmeric. Turmeric has an active ingredient called curcumin that contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Inflammation is closely associated with hypertension. Since turmeric has high levels of anti-inflammatory properties, it can potentially help maintain a normal blood flow.
Experts recommend the use of turmeric supplements that also have black pepper. Black pepper does not just increase nutrient absorption in the body, but it also helps expand the blood vessels (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI).
