Hi, i’m jane from blenditandmendit where i show you how i turn my vitamix blender into my 1 antiaging tool. Welcome. Today I am making my Let’s Not Get High Blood Pressure Green Smoothie. And here’s why. Not too long ago I received an email from a blog I subscribe to, Victoria Boutenko’s green smoothie blog, and she put out What To Add To Green Smoothie’s To Help With High Blood Pressure. So I thought, well, okay, I’m gonna file that away for awhile and I’ll.
Use it at some point. lo and behold, not too long afterwards, i received an email from Michaele who asked, Do you have any smoothies or elixirs for hypertension? which is high blood pressure. Yes, I do now, thanks to Victoria. So, I will have the link to Victoria’s article on my blog, so please go there and read it if you are concerned with high blood pressure and hypertension. In the meantime, let’s make a delicious smoothie that will help to combat that. Out of the.
Fruits and vegetables that victoria listed, i chose to use tomato, and i got the plum tomatoes and these are organic, and in the interest of the budgets we were talking about yesterday, those three tomatoes only cost me $1.79. They were on sale at Whole Foods for $2.49 a pound. so, go for the organic if you can, it’s not always expensive and go for what’s on sale. You can up your game by eating better food. The food is only as nutritious as the soil it’s grown in. Then.
I’m adding one half of a long english cucumber which i purchased from costco, certified pesticide free,so you never know where you’re gonna find the good stuff. And one green onion which Victoria says in her article is rich in chromium, Vitamin C, fiber, manganese, Vitamin B6, on and on and it has healing properties, lowering blood sugar, decreasing the risk of high cholesterol and high blood pressure. So, I’m only adding one, because as you begin to use raw foods, you’ll understand that,.
They taste, in the finished product, the same way they taste whole, because you’re not cooking the flavor out so you don’t need to add more flavor with salts and various other things. So, I’m just gonna add one. And I’m not adding any water to this, I want it to be nice and potent and have that tomatoy juice flavor to it. Ok. Let’s blend up our anti high blood pressure green smoothie. Here we go.
This is so mild and delicious and refreshing. it needs no salt, no spices whatsoever. it is fabulous on its own. One thing I know from experience when using tomatoes in smoothies, if you let them sit in the refrigerator, after a couple hours when they’re chilled, they’re almost like a pudding and you can eat them with a spoon. Either way, it’s delicious. I would like to thank Michaele for writing in with such an important question and I would like to thank Victoria for sending me such valuable information.

There are, literally, millions of people all across North America who are struggling with high blood pressure, as well as Europe, in Australia and all around the world.

Can take months to see results. you can see results in one day, 24 hours, by following the tips in this tutorial. Your number one step to naturally lowering your blood pressure is going to be consuming a Mediterraneanlike diet. And a Mediterranean diet is going to be very, very high in fruits, vegetables, sea foods, and healthy omega3 rich fat oils from things like olives and flax seeds.

Some of the top foods you want to consume on this diet are going to be olive oil, flax seeds, wildcaught fish, especially salmon. And then, lots of fruits and vegetables. If you can do that, that is going to be step one in naturally lowering your blood pressure. There are four more natural remedies that.
Are going to be beneficial as well. The number one supplement and my number two thing you can do to naturally lower blood pressure is start taking a fish oil supplement. Study after study has shown consuming fish oil which is high in EPA and DHA forms of omega3 fatty acids reduce inflammation of the body. We know that one of the main causes of high blood pressure is inflammation of the arteries.

Lower blood pressure. The fourth natural remedy for lowering blood pressure is going to be getting more potassium in your diet or taking even a potassium supplement. Potassium is essential and some of the best potassiumrich foods includes coconut water and bananas. So coconut water is if you want something a little bit sweet to drink through the day, you can do coconut water.
Also doing a superfood smoothie in the morning, doing coconut water as your actual liquid base but getting more potassium. Avocados are also high in potassium, but what I would do is go online and look up potassiumrich foods and start getting more potassium in your diet to naturally lower blood pressure. And my number five supplement for naturally lowering blood pressure is going to be Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is also crucial if you’ve ever been on a blood pressure or especially a cholesterol.
Lowering medication, you must be taking coenzyme q10. It’s antioxidant that is critical for supporting your heart health. And so typically 200 to 300 milligrams a day of Coenzyme Q10 can absolutely naturally help balance blood pressure in the body. So remember, if you’re going to lower your blood pressure, number one, follow a Mediterraneanlike diet that’s high in fruits, vegetables, sea food especially wildcaught fish, and then.
