While I must touch a little on high potential or high blood pressure, there will be much focus on the heart, as a continuation of a series of posts about the heart.
Lower Blood Pressure
The following nutrients are known to lower high blood pressure: Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium, reduce can reduce your systolic blood pressure by 8 – 14 points. This will be a significant difference in your health risk. You can prevent osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Do you know that high blood pressure can cause your blood vessel damage that lead to heart disease, kidney disease and stroke? The reason why high blood pressure is called ‘the silent killer’! Although there might be factors of high blood pressure that come naturally.
For whatever reason, it is the responsibility of you and I to insure that all steps to keep our blood pressure at a normal level be taken. Daily exercise is one factor one should have as a routine. As well as eating foods rich in potassium, fiber, and magnesium, while low in sodium.
Systolic blood pressure is the top number, which represent the pressure in your blood when your heart beats. While at the same time diastolic blood pressure is the bottom number which represents the pressure in the blood vessels between heart beats, that is during that short rest period between beats.
Blood pressure depends on how much blood the heart is pumping and how much resistance is there to blood flow in the arteries. If your arteries narrows, your blood pressure becomes higher. Thus, you need to ensure to eat foods to keep your arteries clean and expanded.
Having a poor blood circulation will cause your blood pressure to go up. Your blood pressure should be no higher than 120/80 mm Hg which is considered normal. If your blood pressure is 130/80 mm Hg or more, it is considered high. If your reading is above normal, but under 120/80 mm Hg you are in the category elevated blood pressure.
You are at risk of developing high blood pressure. At this juncture you should make drastic lifestyle changes. Which will significantly lower your numbers and reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure.
Unclog your arteries
You will find it difficult to remove plaque from the walls of your arteries. Truth is, it is almost impossible without the use of invasive treatment. Instead, it will be better for you to take action to prevent future plaque development.
How do Arteries become clogged?
Because the circulatory system is a network of capillaries, blood vessels and arteries; which transport oxygenated blood through the entire body to fuel all body functions. When the oxygen is used up, carbon dioxide is exhaled from the lungs, which allows you to breath in more oxygenated blood to start the circulatory cycle all over again.
If those blood vessels remain clean and open blood will flow freely, however, if there is the presence of high cholesterol sometimes small blockage build up in the blood vessels which are called plaques, because cholesterol sticks to the walls of the arteries.
When the immune system discovers a problem, it dispatches white blood cells to attract the cholesterol which will no doubt cause inflammation. The dead cells form a plaque over the cholesterol which cause a small blockage to form in the arteries.
If they break loose, they can cause a heart attack. The fact that the plaque continues to grow, they can entirely block blood flow in an artery.
Are there natural ways to unclog arteries?
There are several articles promoting natural ways to unclog arteries, there are also some small studies in animal show promise for the future. That’s been said; this woman will speak her personal experience, which is not a recommendation to the public.
Note: there are herbs and vegetables that do clean the arteries from plaques and also expand narrowing arteries. I have personally used some of these herbs and vegetables. I will name two of that works fast and effectively.
Purslane and Neem are among the most efficient arteries cleansers, softeners, and expanses, known to me. Should you take any of the two and die, don’t say I killed you I am alive and well after taking these two…
However, the official medical way to cleanse your arteries from plaque built-up are by losing weight, exercising more and eating less cholesterol-rich foods. These are the steps to take to reduce plaque build-up.
Note that taking these steps will not remove plaques that are already building up. You might want to promote better heart health, by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Healthy habits will help prevent additional plaque from building up.
Heart Healthy Diet
Your choice of food can play a significant role in improving your heart’s health, and reducing plaques built up. It can never be too late to start eating healthy diets. Despite years of bad eating can damage your body, turning to good eating can also help to heal the body.
A heart healthy diet contains good fats, and low amounts of bad fats. Good fats are called unsaturated fats. These fat are found in foods like: Nuts, Olives, Avocados, and Fish.
