High blood pressure, often known as hypertension, is a common condition in which the force of the blood on the artery walls is high enough to create health problems. A blood pressure reading of less than 120/80 mm Hg is considered normal. A blood pressure of 130/80 mm Hg or higher is considered high.
If not addressed promptly, high blood pressure, a silent killer, can cause heart attacks, strokes, heart disease, organ failure, and death. If you have high blood pressure, your doctor will prescribe medication, but did you know that there are several items in your kitchen cupboard that can be used to treat the same condition?
Here are six home remedies for high blood pressure.
Garlic water is a natural blood pressure regulator because it enhances the generation of nitric oxide. This is a gas with a strong vasodilation effect, which improves blood circulation and lowers heart pressure. Garlic is also beneficial to cardiovascular health since it contains powerful antioxidants that protect blood arteries. Infusing garlic in water and sipping it throughout the day is one method of eating it.
Valerian roots contain calming and relaxing effects that aid with blood circulation. Furthermore, valerian tea acts directly on the GABA neurotransmitter, which can benefit those who suffer from anxiety attacks and have high blood pressure as a result.
A tbsp of onion juice in a cup with two tbsp of honey is a simple way to reduce your blood pressure. Consume this combination on a daily basis.
Curry leaves are a natural remedy for a variety of ailments and a good hypertension treatment. Curry leaves, which are low in salt and high in potassium, are reported to have a powerful therapeutic impact in the treatment of high blood pressure. Add drinking water and 4-5 curry leaves to a pan, cool it, and use it on a daily basis.
Beetroot is excellent for controlling blood pressure. In fact, numerous studies have found that the presence of specific phytochemicals and antioxidants in beets can aid in the management of illnesses such as hypertension and heart disease.
Carrots include phenolic chemicals such as chlorogenic, p-coumaric, and caffeic acids, which help relax blood vessels and reduce inflammation, potentially lowering blood pressure. Although carrots can be eaten raw or cooked, eating them raw may be more useful for lowering blood pressure.
