    Lowering Blood Pressure



    500 mg Vitamin C (daily) keeps blood vessels healthy, increasing blood flow to the heart and preventing plaque build up.

    2.5 mg dose of melatonin (A daily dose of melatonin can decrease pressure in three weeks.)

    100 mg daily of pycnogenol, an antioxidant supplement made from the bark of French pine trees, with doctors approval can cut daily dose of blood pressure medication by 30%. (Pycnogenol helps increase blood flow in blood vessels and capillaries.)



    Take deep breaths. Spend 10-15 minutes of closing your eyes and listening to your breathing. Smokers inhale deeply and let it out as they take in addicting toxins. Research suggests that a smokers body is actually craving the de-stressing that comes from relaxing deep breathing. Studies are being done to see if smokers can overcome their addiction by replacing the inhaling/exhaling of smoking with deep breathing. So far, so good.

    Studies have shown that workplace stress can lead to serious ailments such as an increase in rates of heart disease, flu virus, metabolic syndrome and high blood pressure.

    Lack of sleep can lead to strokes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, psychiatric problems, weight gain, decreased alertness, impaired memory and cognitive ability and along with the increased stress. Get plenty of sleep.

    Thank you. I found your article quite interesting. Some people go to the doctor's office, after rushing there for an appointment and are immediately put into a room, where a nurse takes blood pressure. It can be sky high due to nerves. Always ask to rest at least five minutes, and have the blood pressure taken a second time.
