Number 1 – Healthy Heart Drink Ginger and Cardamom Tea.

Research carried out published in the Indian Journal of Biochemistry & Biophysics in December of 2009 focused on Cardamom as a key ingredient for treatment of high blood pressure.

In this study a group of participants, who had recently been diagnosed with Stage 1 hypertension, were given 1 teaspoon of cardamom powder each day for several weeks.

Results showed a significantly decreased systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure after 12 weeks.

Their antioxidant status was also significantly increased by 90% at the end of the three month study.

Further research is ongoing to identify exactly what is in cardamom that helps.  Even though we may not know what part of the cardamom causes these results, it doesn’t really matter! What matters is the evidence of it significantly reducing blood pressure!

Cardamom has proven itself, through scientific study, to be one of the most effective natural remedies for high blood pressure.

In the following recipe we focus on Cardamom Tea. We also add some ginger and cinnamon. These added spices are known to improve circulation.

These three spices create one holistic herbal tea that helps to get your heart healthy.

Number 2 – Eat Heart Healthy!

While it may sound like normal advice to live life by, the fact is, eating healthy foods is one of the most important lifestyle changes you can make.

If you are serious about reducing your high blood pressure eating fresh natural products is key. Good healthy foods can prevent hypertension as well as being an excellent natural way to lower blood pressure.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute promotes a diet that is rich and filled with fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and low fat or fat free dairy products.  Daily diet should also be complimented with whole grains, beans, pulses, chicken and fish.

It also makes sense that if we add healthy produce to our diet, we limit those foods which cause damage. This means cutting out sodium, processed sweets and sugars, sugary beverages and fatty red meats.

Number 3 – Exercise Is One Of The Best Natural High Blood Pressure Remedies.

Adding daily physical exercise is one of the easiest of the natural remedies for high blood pressure.

Healthy exercise is classed as 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity. Each day. Each day of the week.

The Mayo Clinic states that through the addition of daily exercise you can lower your blood pressure by anywhere between 4-9 “millimeters of mercury” (mmHg) .

You don’t need to run marathons, or even jog around the block, simply by going for a walk or taking part in light strength training you can help reduce high blood pressure.

Number 4 – Stress Less Through Meditation Or Yoga.

Mindfulness and meditation has long been used, around the world and in almost all cultures, as a technique to reduce stress and improve mental well being.

In a Massachusetts university studies showed more than 19,000 people were able to improve mental health and lower stress by participating in a meditation and mindfulness program.

Yoga involves learning specific breathe control, physical body posture and meditation techniques.  Similar to mindfulness, Yoga is proven to be equally as effective in reducing stress and therefore blood pressure.

In 2013 a review, which included 17 studies of the relationship between yoga and blood pressure, found on average participants blood pressure decreased by 3.62-4.17 mmHg.

Number 5 – Lower Blood Pressure With Apple Cider Tonic!

This is a truly wonderful tonic and definitely worthy of being in the top natural remedies for high blood pressure.

So how do these ingredients help lower blood pressure and help keep our body healthy?

Lemon
The lemon contains flavonoids, vitamin C and dietary fiber.  All 3 of these have been proven to lower cholesterol.

Garlic
Consumption of raw garlic is known to lower triglycerides, glucose and cholesterol levels.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a wonderful natural health booster.  ACV, as commonly referred to, helps by lowering your total cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

It is well known to be an excellent home remedy for many other ailments such as heartburn or acid reflux, gout, respiratory infections, and many others.

Honey
Honey has been proven to protect arteries against cholesterol build up.

Ginger
In patients suffering from diabetes, hypothyroidism and nephrotic syndrome (even alcoholism) the addition of ginger was shown to lower levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.

So here is the recipe for our Apple Cider Tonic. To really gain the benefits and allow the tonic to be effective you need to take small amounts regularly throughout the day. At a minimum you should take before every meal.

It is a potent mix so if the taste makes it unpalatable you can dilute it in a half glass of water to drink it.

Number 6 – Find A Fish Oil Supplement.

To really help with high blood pressure you should start taking a fish oil supplement (recommended is 1,000-2,000 mg daily)

A major cause of high blood pressure is inflammation of the arteries over a prolonged period of time.

Many clinical studies have shown the consumption of fish oil reduces inflammation in the body. This is attributed to high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

By taking high quality fish oil supplements every day with meals is one of the best natural high blood pressure remedies.

Number 7 – Blood Pressure Lowers With Blueberry Syrup.

Syrups are one of the very best ways to incorporate the health giving benefits of herbs and spices into our diet. They are also amazingly tasty!

I know that syrup usually means super sweet and sickeningly heavy, which definitely isn’t what we want, this Blueberry syrup is the opposite. Light, healthy and nutritious.

Commercial store bought syrups are to be avoided. This home made syrup it is an incredibly delicious and healthy way to give yourself a natural heart health boost.

It’s also fair to say that many natural home remedies are often too tart and hard to swallow … so this is a great way to get a sweet treat!

Blueberries are loaded with the flavonoid quercetin.  Quercetin is incredible for treating inflammatory illnesses such as “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), high cholesterol, heart disease and circulation problems.

To make this extra heart healthy add a handful of elderberries.

Number 8 – Eat High-Protein Foods – Prevention Not Cure.

Natural High Blood Pressure Remedies.

Long term studies concluding in 2014 found that those of us who eat more protein have a lower risk of developing high blood pressure.

By eating 100 grams of protein, on average each day, you have a 40 percent lower risk of developing high blood pressure.

That’s pretty easy right! It’s very easy to consume 100 grams of good proteins each day.

Here’s a checklist of good high protein foods:

10 Natural Remedies For High Blood Pressure Post

High Protein Ingredient Suggestions

Fish
Salmon – 3 ounces gives 22 grams;
Tuna, canned in water – 1 cup gives 39 grams

Poultry
3 ounces of chicken breast = 27 grams

Eggs
1 egg = 6 grams

Beef
3 ounces of lean beef = 22 grams

Beans and Legumes
Kidney beans, 1/2 cup cooked = 7.6 grams;
Lentils, 1/2 cup cooked = 9 grams
Chickpeas 1/2 cup cooked = 7.3 grams

Nuts
Almonds, 100 grams equals 21 grams protein;
Pistachio, 100 grams gives 20 grams protein;
Peanut butter, 2 tablespoons = 8 grams

Cheese
1 ounce of cheddar = 6.5 grams

Number 9 – Heavenly Hawthorn For Heart Health.

Hawthorn is an amazing herb and incredibly rich in flavonoids:

  • oligomeric procyandins (OPC’s)
  • quercetin.

Flavonoids are often reported as having dozens of health benefits.  It is the positive affects on the many various forms of heart disease that dominate clinical studies.

Research to date has shown flavonoids to have good impact upon:

  • arrhythmia,
  • palpitations,
  • improving the function of capillaries,
  • regulation of  glucose metabolism,
  • reducing arterial blood pressure and,
  • reducing risk of hypertension.

This is reported to be due to flavonoids helping to widen the blood vessels, which ultimately reduces the pressure of the blood.

While most natural remedies recommend hawthorn in the form of a tea, which I recommend also, the following recipe gives you a delicious snack based treat of heavenly hawthorn balls.

These balls have the added benefit of having cinnamon and ginger as ingredients.  Both of which are great for helping circulation. One of the best natural high blood pressure remedies.

hawthorn ginger and cinnamon balls recipe

    5. Roll into small balls about the size of index fingernail - think Maltesers!
    6. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the oven until dry. Approximately 30 minutes but may take longer.
    7. These balls will keep indefinitely when stored in a cool dark place, in an airtight container
