High blood pressure: Regular exercise ‘can lower BP in 9 days.’
IF YOU EATED A LOT OF UNHEALTHY FOOD AND DID NEARLY NO EXERCISE OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASON, YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE MAY HAVE RISEN.
Lowering blood pressure is typically achieved through diet and exercise.
According to Dr. Sarah Brewer, not all exercises are created equal, and one may stand out above the rest.
Dr. Brewer had not only exercises but also a diet to recommend.
She calls it the DASH diet, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension and is based on a low-salt intake.
She claims that this diet “is based on the Mediterranean way of eating and is high in olive oil, garlic, fruit, vegetables, nuts, and low-fat dairy products, supplies protein in the form of fish and chicken rather than red meat, and is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, and refined carbohydrates,” and that it “is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, and refined carbohydrates.”
“The DASH diet works by increasing your intake of potassium, calcium, magnesium, antioxidant vitamins, and fibre – all of which help to lower high blood pressure,” Dr. Brewer explained.
The DASH diet can have a significant impact.
According to Dr. Brewer, lowering your salt intake “reduces fluid retention, improves the elasticity of your arteries, and aids in the reduction of blood pressure.”
However, the salt content of not all products in the local store is listed.
Instead, look at how much sodium is in them, as salt is made up of sodium.
Consider beetroot as a dietary addition if you’re looking for something different.
“Beetroot is high in nitrates, which are used to make nitric oxide, which has a powerful dilating effect on blood vessels to lower blood pressure,” says Dr. Brewer.
You can take food supplements in addition to eating more fruits and vegetables.
Magnesium is part of this.
Taking a magnesium tablet can “relax artery and reduce arterial spasm,” which is normally associated with reducing fatigue.
It can also “lower blood pressure, protecting against coronary artery calcification.”
According to research involving over half a million people, people who consume the most magnesium in their diet are 33 percent less likely to have a heart attack or stroke than those who consume the least.
To lower your blood pressure, drink 250ml of beetroot juice or eat 100g if you don’t feel like cooking with it.
According to reports, this amount of beetroot is more effective than some antihypertensive drugs.
While these lifestyle modifications are taking place.
