Lowering Blood Pressure

I have lowered my blood pressure in the past 5 months by eating low sodium. I used to take 5 prescription medications a day, now I just take one for blood pressure. I have taken meds for over 30 years and was even slim when I started having HBP problems!
After having problems and even landing in the hospital with 220/110, I learned more about a low sodium diet and started. At first I was drastic, only up to 500 mg a day of sodium. Now I eat about 1,000 mg.

Hypertension / Diabetic / everyone friendly snack

Sprinkle ground cinnamon on a sliced apple. Not only does it taste refreshingly good, but there is some evidence cinnamon helps reduce high blood pressure. It takes an ordinary apple and makes it a dessert. Enjoy!

Use a pepper grinder and fresh herbs

Burn a few extra calories by using a black pepper grinder. You keep your hands and forearms stronger with the benefit of fresh seasoning. In fact, opt for fresh herbs whenever possible - the flavors will help you feel satisfied with fewer calories!

Cut the salt!

Cutting the salt in your food will reduce water retention, your blood pressure, and reduce your chance for heart disease.
