Treating High Blood Pressure

Treating High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for death in the world.
It is beneficial to have your blood pressure down around 110/70.
Those eating a plant-based diet naturally have a  reading in this range.
According to a study by the Seventh Day Adventists' of 89,000 people, those who ate a 
vegetarian diet (eggs and dairy were included) cut their risk of high blood pressure by 55%.
Those who ate a strictly plant-based diet cut their risk by 75%.
Foods that are high in potassium, like bananas, ground flax seeds (a few tablespoons possess one of the strongest anti-hypertensive effects of plant-based foods) and watermelon offer the greatest protection against high blood pressure.   

Here is a great article from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine:

Also 2 videos from Nutrition 

You know I am obsessed with Rich Roll's Podcast, so here's two of the best from Cardiologists'
(Those of you who have iphone's or ipad's, you can download his app to have access to all podcasts) 
And Darin Olien, Superfoods for Superlife   

I have linked this video before, but I believe everyone needs to watch this more then once.
It is a little over an hour long, but its well worth it!

This should give you plenty of great information to enjoy during the Holidays.

Have great week.
Be kind.
