High Blood Pressure Natural Remedies not only offers some really cool natural remedies for HBP, but it also shows how a simple change in lifestyles can help lower your blood pressure.
In addition to this we also offer an uncomplicated explanation of what your blood pressure readings
How many times have you heard someone say " my blood pressure is 120 over 80" and you don't really know what the upshot of this is.
In simple terms what it means is, that when your heart beats, a swell of new blood is sent out which indicates the first reading on your blood pressure status, this is called the systolic reading. The heart then briefly takes a rest, the pressure ebbs, and the blood pressure monitor will then extrapolate the diastolic, or second reading.
Both the systolic and the diastolic reading are important. Even if only one of them is high, you still have high blood pressure.
The whole body and all the organs rely on a regular flow of blood, and if the force of the blood coming through your heart is too strong due to high blood pressure, your heart will struggle.
The arteries can narrow and lose the flexibility which is required to absorb the shock of the pulse wave of blood.
The body and it's organs will start getting less blood.
Blood clots can get lodged.
And the result.............
A Big Fat Heart Attack!!
So.... here is your list of potassium rich foods for you to "pig out"on.
As well as figs, tomatoes, yoghurt, bananas and lentils.

And then there is beetroot....
A deficiency in potassium, calcium and manganese have been linked to high blood pressure and 3 guesses what beetroot is rich in? You right they are rich in potassium.
YOU HAVE TO EXERCISE
DON'T LET YOUR CALCIUM LEVELS DROP.
Some experts maintain that high blood pressure can be caused by a calcium deficiency rather than an oversupply of sodium and that an adequate supply of calcium can cancel the blood pressure raising effects of sodium.
So, rather be on the safe side and check out this list of calcium rich foods to be included in your diet.
And in today's "eat on the run" world, perhaps calcium supplements could be considered.
And finally, on your High Blood Pressure Natural Remedies list, and probably must importantly, is the list of things NOT to do.
Take care, and have your blood pressure checked regularly.
Remember, not to get fanatical about checking your blood pressure, as it changes all the time.
But be safe, and check it out if you are even slightly unhappy about something.
