Hypertension: Top Natural Supplements for Treatment

Wednesday, 02 Mar 2011 03:25 PM

Experts have stressed the fact that hypertension treatments are mostly related to diet. Experts suggest that hypertension infact is caused due to excessive intake of certain minerals and nutrients as well as their deficiency in some cases, excluding other stress related reasons. Maintaining a balanced diet is one of the top secrets to lowering your blood pressure.
Someone suffering from hypertension needs to ensure that there is enough potassium in their body as it is extremely important for muscles and nerves. Hypertension research experts have postulated that in the treatment for hypertension, regular and adequate intake of potassium can lower hypertension by almost 20 points.

The DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) also suggests magnesium as one of the most effective natural supplements to help treat hypertension. An intake of around 500 milligrams of magnesium on a daily basis helps treat high blood pressure.

Natural methods for hypertension treatment have also explored the benefits of garlic. All hypertension patients are advised to include garlic in their diet. A few cloves of garlic are sure to keep your blood pressure from rising as well as regulate your cholesterol levels.

Another important natural supplement that helps in the treatment of hypertension in a natural way is peanuts and soy products. This is because these food items contain L-Argine, an amino acid that helps the body to produce nitric acid.

Hypertension treatment experts have come out with the breakthrough declaration that 2 grams of L-argine acid in food taken daily reduces systolic pressure by at least 20 points. This is indeed a great win for one who is suffering from hypertension.

For many struggling through hypertension treatment plans, Apple Cider Vinegar has also proven effective. This is because of the high content of vitamins E, A, C, B1, B2, and B6 and nutrients that lower blood pressure.

All these natural supplements not only drastically reduce your diastolic and systolic blood pressure but also lower your cholesterol levels.
