Do you or a loved one suffer from Hypertension? Did you know that half of the adults in the United States suffer from Hypertension? It may surprise you that any blood pressure over 130/80 qualifies as Hypertension! 😱
I’m excited to share with you my latest video all about Hypertension! In this video, I explain the common ROOT causes of high blood pressure including:
Stress (High Cortisol)
Standard American Diet (SAD Diet 🙁) which is high in processed food and sodium 🍟
Excess Alcohol 🍺 or Caffeine ☕
Inflammation (Leaky Gut) or Dysbiosis in the Gut Microbiome 🦠
Then I present my natural protocol to reduce your blood pressure through diet, lifestyle changes, and by taking some key supplements.
What are the best foods for reducing blood pressure 🥬? What’s the verdict on salt? Learn the important role of Magnesium and Potassium in your diet when managing blood pressure.
Learn non-pharmacologic treatments that are research-proven to help with blood pressure. I also review Diaphragmatic Breathing 🧘, which helps activate the vagus nerve and parasympathetic nervous system; helping to reduce heart rate and blood pressure.
Some of the featured supplements helpful for Blood Pressure Include:
Nitric Oxide Support: This contains the amino acid L-Citrulline, which helps your body make more Nitric Oxide, which can help to relax your blood vessels and reduce your blood pressure. It also contains polyphenols and antioxidants from Quercetin and Grape Seed Extract. It is taken at a dose of 2 capsules twice a day.
Magnesium: This is the “calming mineral” that helps to relax your blood vessels and promote healthy blood pressure. It also improves the quality of your sleep 😴, alleviates anxiety, helps with muscle recovery 💪, and helps to keep your bowels regular. It is taken at a dose of 2 capsules at bedtime.
CoQ 10: This is a powerful antioxidant 🌟 for the mitochondria of your cells that is good for your heart 🫀 and can also help to promote healthy blood pressure. It is taken at a dose of 1 capsule daily.
