effective in lowering blood pressure naturally.
1.CoQ10 supplements 'CoEnzyme Q10 or CoQ10
For short is a powerful anti-oxidant which is in every
cell in your body. Your body uses CoQ10 to derive
In a double-blind placebo controlled study published in
The Journal of Human Hypertension, The group which
took CoQ10 for just 8 weeks showed a significant reduction
of blood pressure.
Also in a University of Texas study, people taking oral
CoQ10 after just one month experienced significant
lowering of blood pressure and 51% of participants were
able to discontinue blood pressure medication.

recommended dose: 100-200 mg gel caps each day to
help lower blood pressure.
2.Vitamins, Herbs and Anti-oxidants

Garlic '2 cloves
Hawthorn berry '500 mg
Omega 3 fatty acid fish oil Gel caps '1000 mg
Vitamin b6 in a natural multivitamin
Magnesium '500 mg
Astragalus root 500mg
3. Food Sources:

Mediterranean diet on 20,000 people proved that olive
Oil, Fruits and Vegetables were significantly associated
with lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Celery '4 sticks a day, relaxes the smooth

Fresh cold water fish which is high in Omega-3 fatty
Salt 'let's understand the real reason why salt is important
to your blood pressure.
We - ve all heard that you need to cut down on sodium in your diet,
although this is not bad advice, it misses the point. High sodium
intake alone does not increase blood pressure, it is an excess of
sodium to potassium ratio.
The ideal ratio is five times as much potassium as sodium in
Your diet. You'll get the best results by eating three servings
A day of potassium rich foods such as:
Bananas '1 large
Avocados '1 cup
Beans '- cup
Squash '1 cup
Tomatoes '- cup
Low levels of magnesium can also contribute to high
Blood pressure, so here are some Magnesium rich foods:
Almonds '1/3 cup
Tofu '- cup
Cashews '1 cup
Raisin bran '1/3 cup
And finally lets talk about what level of blood pressure is
considered high. Right now the threshold pushed by
mainstream medicine is 115/75 '120/80 which WAS considered
borderline LOW just 5 years ago.
This is because the standard for 'high' blood pressure, just like
the standard for cholesterol is repeatedly lowered to put more
people on medication.
Your individual risk factors and age play a big role in
determining what is a good blood pressure level for YOU.
So don't just accept a one size fits all number when it comes
to your blood pressure. Ask questions and discuss your
health with a nutritionally educated Doctor to find what is
best for you.
So what about YOU? Are You going to let the silent killer
