Blood Pressure Breakthrough Grows in Your Garden
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
If you have high blood pressure, then you know what a pain managing it can be.
You have to watch what you eat… some doctor has probably put you on an exercise program straight out of Navy SEAL boot camp… and you may even be taking drugs that are ruining everything from your sleep to your sex life.
And it’s all because everyone has you worried that you’re going to drop dead from a heart attack or stroke.
If you ever wished that managing your blood pressure could be a little easier, there’s good news.
Turns out there’s an all-natural way to lower your blood pressure and reclaim your heart health.
And believe it or not — it could grow in your yard.
This heart-healthy solution is hibiscus, that gorgeous flower that may have been blooming in your garden for years.
And new science shows it runs circles around a top blood pressure medication, hydrochlorothiazide, or HCTZ.
To prove this, researchers randomly assigned 75 participants with mild to moderate high blood pressure to three different groups. The first group took 25 mg of HCTZ, the second group drank hibiscus tea and the third took a placebo.
At the end of the monthlong trial, the researchers found that the folks in the hibiscus group had significantly lower blood pressure readings than the group taking HCTZ.
That’s right. A simple flower can control your blood pressure better than one of Big Pharma’s leading blood pressure drugs.
And the news about hibiscus only gets better…
Researchers found that folks who drank the hibiscus tea maintained a healthy blood pressure for a longer period after stopping the study than those taking the HCTZ.
Experts believe hibiscus is so good at controlling blood pressure because it can increase blood flow, regulate calcium absorption and slow angiotensin-converting enzyme (the ACE in ACE inhibitors).
You can get hibiscus tea or supplements at natural healthy stores and through online retailers. In this study, the highest dose was 200 mg.
