Tips To Get Your Blood Pressure Down

To get your blood pressure down to 110/70, dish up a good dose of egg whites daily and follow these simple tips. 

It is an interesting  fact that egg white seem to lower elevated blood pressure as effective as some medications. They act like an ACE inhibitor and encourage dialation of blood vessels and urination of excess salt and water.

  • Eat plenty of plant proteins from broccoli, beans, brown rice and oatmeal.
  • Add soybeans to relax blood vessels and help balance sodium levels.
  •  Have two to three fistfuls of collard greens for their calcium and fiber.
  • Enjoy dark chocolate to ease inflammation and relax blood vessels – 30 calories worth a day does the trick
  • Take heart-smart supplements such as 200mg coenzyme Q10 daily.

Walk 30 or more minutes a day and eliminate the five food felons from your diet: saturated and trans fats, added sugar and sugar syrups and any grain that isn’t 100 per cent whole. That always takes your pressure off.

You are at the risk of hypertension if you have a genetic predisposition, are obese, smoke, are inactive, eat too much salt, have diabetes or chronic stress or don’t get enough sleep.

Excercise To Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Prevent Type 2 Diabetes by Losing Weight

Studies show  that type 2 diabetes can be prevented by losing weight before the onset of condition. According to the studies, people with pre-diabetes, who lose roughly 10 percent of their body weight within six months of diagnosis, dramatically lower their risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the next three years. 

Short-term Behaviour Change may Effect Long term Health and Prevent Diabetes

Much of the benefits of losing that weight is noticed in those first six months when people are adjusting to a new way of eating and excercising.

Substantial weight loss  in the short-term clearly should go a long way towards preventing diabetes. 

Preventing pre-diabetes from becoming full-blown diabetes is critical. Uncontrolled diabetes marked by excess sugar in the blood can lead to eye, kidney and nerve damage as well as cardiovascular disease.  

The research is published online in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
