Miracle Mineral DOWNS Blood Pressure (No Drugs!)
Blood pressure drugs are big business.
About 1 in 3 Americans has high blood pressure according to the latest guidelines… and an additional 1 in 3 is close to having the disease.
That’s over 100 million people who pay into the system for a condition that you DON’T need drugs to fix.
Fortunately, there’s a way to keep your money in your own wallet and CURE your blood pressure at the same time.
And it’s all thanks to a certain miracle mineral.
Last year, new guidelines were issued that changed the definition of high blood pressure from 140/90 down to 130/80.
Overnight, Big Pharma added thousands of hypertension patients to its list of clients.
A closer look at the research will show you that these new guidelines are based on faulty science (but that’s a story for another day).
My point for today is that if your BP is 130/80 or higher, your doctor will try to put you on a drug to lower your numbers.
These can include Beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, and others. They all reduce BP in different ways (by slowing your heart rate, removing excess salt from your body, helping the blood vessels relax, etc.)
But you DON’T need to take a SINGLE DRUG to lower your blood pressure.
I’m talking about magnesium.
Over the years, numerous studies have shown that magnesium is a miracle cure for your blood pressure woes.
In one meta-analysis, researchers found that taking 300 mg of magnesium for one month lowered blood pressure and increased magnesium in the blood.
In another meta-analysis, this time published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the researchers also concluded that magnesium can help lower blood pressure in people with chronic diseases like insulin resistance and prediabetes.
The reason why magnesium lowers your blood pressure is that it stops your blood vessels from constricting, keeps your heart rate steady, and improves your nerve function. All of these actions lead to lower blood pressure and increased blood flow.
If you go the supplement route, make sure you choose a specific form of magnesium called magnesium glycinate or magnesium citrate because they are more absorbable.
Foods that contain ample magnesium include leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, almonds, mackerel, and more.
