This Super Spud Is What You Need To Lower Blood Pressure

cutting-sweet-potatoes

High blood pressure can inhibit a person from taking a jog or eating certain foods. To be fair, a lot of people develop high blood pressure from eating unhealthy foods, so making a few changes to your diet may not be the worst thing. The trick is to eat foods that work to naturally lower your blood pressure. If you haven’t had luck at lowering blood pressure, it might be time to get some sweet potatoes in your diet.

 

Some people like to avoid sweet potatoes, or potatoes in general, because of their starch content. This super spud is different! Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and contain essential blood pressure-lowering nutrients like potassium and magnesium. Let it be known that if you top your sweet potato with butter, brown sugar, sour cream, or cook it in heavy cream, you negate all of the benefits.

 

How Do They Do It?

Sweet potatoes contain a lot of potassium, which is known to help naturally lower blood pressure. Potassium actually helps your kidneys eliminate excess sodium from the body. By naturally lowering the sodium content in the body, blood pressure can come down as well. Additionally, sweet potatoes contain essential nutrients like folate, manganese, copper, phosphorus, and iron. The concentration of iron and calcium in sweet potatoes help them to naturally lower your blood pressure. Oh, and did we mention that they also have carotenes, biotin, and vitamins? Well, we just did.

 

There are many ways to enjoy sweet potatoes. You can juice them, sauté them, boil them, or roast them in the oven. Merely adding sweet potatoes to your diet, though, won’t lower your blood pressure. It is beneficial to limit your consumption of meat, dairy products, salty foods, refined sugars, processed foods, fried food, and other oily or fattening foods. Focus on eating plant based foods like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds for the best results.

    Q: I just stopped taking my medication for high blood pressure (10mg of Lisinapril) about a week and half ago. I started your regimen of Circul-Aid Formula, Cardio-Vascular Formula and celery everyday. Will there be any after effects from my taking prescription medication for a long period of time? Are there any other healing regimens I could undergo along with the current (i.e. cayenne/garlic)? I did the Full Body Detox in January (excellent), and plan on undertaking that regimen again in July. My only concern was the lasting effects of the medication. Also, the article on High Blood Pressure was very informative.

    A:

    Drug residues will remain in the tissues for some time. The more you detox, take herbals, and eat raw fruits and vegetables (drink fruit and vegetable juice), drink good water, etc. The faster the drug residues will leave the body. Drugs are not assimilated in the body, because they are not organic, they end up lodged in the tissues of the body. When you take herbs, and eat fruits and vegetables, the tissues are cleansed and that's how the drug residues are eliminated from the body. You are on the right path, and I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Don't even worry about the past drug medicine use. Stay in the NOW (moment), and focus on what you desire and you will be alright. A cayenne/garlic formula would aid you. Go for it! Make sure changes are made to the diet because it's the primary factor in HBP along with stress. Check out our "Dietary Choices" section under 'More Services' on the Home Page.
