[VidSitePro id=10 ]Hey guys dr. axe here founder of dr. axe calm and dr. functional medicine today I’m going to sharing with you my top foods and supplements for overcoming high blood pressure and believe it or not blood pressure is something that can be easily balanced out if you follow the steps here that I’m going to talk about in this video so first let’s talk about what causes high blood pressure and most of time when you’re reading online or in the media today you’re going to see things like excess sodium consumption emotional stress and poor diet and lack of exercise so those are kind of four of the big ones that people say may be causing high blood pressure and so let’s start off talking about diet what is the best diet for blood pressure well there are three specific nutrients you want to make sure that you’re getting in your diet if you have high blood pressure and those include potassium antioxidants as well as omega-3 fatty acids in fact if I had to throw fourth linen in there I would say magnesium if you can add those four nutrients into your diet and eat foods that are high in those substances you’re gonna see your blood pressure really balance out there very quickly and so that’s going to be a diet that’s high in fruits vegetables sprouted nuts and seeds and then organic wild cup meats and one of the things you may do after watching this video is go to my site dr. axe com do a search for potassium rich foods magnesium rich foods and omega-3 rich foods and if you go and look at those food lists you’ll see things like avocados are packed with magnesium and potassium so actually doing guacamole would be great for you or I consuming chia seeds or wild-caught salmon or you know other foods like that of figs or super high in potassium as well and so again I would go online and look up foods that are really high in potassium magnesium omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants as well and we have actually all of those top ten lists there on dr. axe comm so that should be diet some things you want to avoid diet wise when you’re following a healthy blood pressure diet is avoid excess sodium take so you don’t want to overdo the salt a little bit of sea salt is fine but definitely staying away from the processed iodized salt really eliminating processed sugar you know processed sugar will definitely cause your blood pressure to spike and then of course processed and fast foods that contain hydrogenated oils we know those are inflammatory to the body that inflammation in the arteries will cause blood pressure to rise and actually will cause high cholesterol as well and so again you get those foods out add in those mineral and vitamin rich foods and you’re gonna see immediate results in your blood pressure and then in terms of the best supplements to naturally treat blood pressure I want to go over the top ones here first one would be fish oil fish oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids those omega-3 fatty acids called EPA and DHA are highly anti-inflammatory and we know that pi blood pressure is in part caused by inflammation so if you can start adding in wild-caught fish into your diet and taking a good quality fish oil supplement at about a thousand milligrams a day you will see results very quickly in your blood pressure the second most important supplement to take for blood pressure is magnesium you know magnesium helps relax your blood vessel walls and improve circulation and reduces stress in your body and so all of those things are benefits of taking magnesium which will naturally lower blood pressure typically you want to take 250 milligrams of magnesium two times a day and I recommend a magnesium chelate supplement when you take that the third supplement you may want to consider taking if you have high blood pressure is coenzyme q-10 and this is absolutely absolutely essential as well if you’ve ever taken a cholesterol-lowering medication coenzyme q-10 is an antioxidant that supports heart health and circulation and also acts as an antioxidant and so again coenzyme q10 about 200 milligrams a day is a great supplement for helping blood pressure issues the fourth supplement would be garlic you know you can actually eat garlic or take garlic extract but garlic contains allicin as well as other phytonutrients that kill off bad bacteria in your body and act as antioxidants to help lower blood pressure you can also use lavender essential oil lavender oil has been shown to reduce stress which was what is one of the major causes of high blood pressure typically take about two to four drops of lavender oil rub it on your neck and you will see that start to improve your overall blood pressure as well and then last but not least in lowering blood pressure I would recommend daily exercise you don’t have to exercise every day but just twenty to thirty minutes three times a week of exercise can make a huge difference I recommend checking out interval training like my birth fit program is one of the best ways to get fit fast but also just in general any form of exercise whether it be weight training walking Pilates Barre classes or even group classes all of those are effective forms of exercise and have been at helping naturally lower your blood pressure hey guys I hope you’ve enjoyed these top tips to naturally lower blood pressure if you want to learn more hey
