How to Treat High Blood Pressure with Nutrition Supplements

 

High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition that can be controlled by a healthy lifestyle and medications. It is a problem that should be treated as soon as possible to avoid far worse conditions like heart attack.

There are several supplements that are beneficial in lowering blood pressure.

Garlic Supplements: A recent study has showed that garlic may soon become a medically approved supplement for the treatment of hypertension. This is how effective garlic is!

Vitamin C: It has been observed that people with high blood pressure usually have low levels of vitamin C. Thus, this nutritional supplement is very helpful in lowering blood pressure

Calcium: In order to maintain the function of the heart muscle and maintaining the arteries, calcium has been proven very effective. This is why it makes a good blood pressure reducing supplement.

Folic acid: This lowers the homocysteine levels in the body which are responsible for exacerbating high blood pressure. They also increase the risk of stroke in people.

Flaxseed Oil: It contains Omega 3 fatty acids that increase the good cholesterol levels in the body, hence leading to a well controlled blood pressure. Flaxseed oil is also advantageous in lowering blood pressure because it can reduce inflammation in the body.

Fish oil: Omega 3 fatty acids are found abundantly in fish oil. This is why it is beneficial for controlling blood pressure. These fatty acids are available in gel caps and liquid form, which can be sprinkled over salads or mixed with steamed vegetables.

Hawthorn: It helps in dilating arteries, widening blood vessels and reducing blood volume. Hawthorn is a herb which is slightly diuretic and good for high blood pressure.

Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ-10):  It is believed that the deficiency of the compound coenzyme Q10 leads to high blood pressure. In fact, it has been observed that hypertension prescription medicines can be discontinued after taking CoQ-10 supplements.
