(NaturalNews) High blood pressure is known as the silent killer: it has no symptoms and leads to a shortened life as micro cracks in the tiny blood vessels and arteries throughout the body become infiltrated with deadly plaque. When blood pressure remains out of control for many years the risk for coronary artery disease and stroke are greatly increased. Fortunately you can return your blood pressure to normal through dietary modification and by supplementing with essential natural nutrients which can help extend your life.

Lowering Blood Pressure with Drugs is Deadly
Nature has provided us with a host of vitamins, minerals and nutrients which are effective in lowering blood pressure without the need for dangerous pharmaceuticals. A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that tight control of blood pressure using drugs is associated with an increased risk of death. Artificially manipulating blood pressure with drugs is dangerous while supplementing with natural nutrients will lower disease risk factors and extend your life.

Losing Weight and Eating Blueberries to Lower Blood Pressure
The first step to lowering your blood pressure is to lose some weight. Dropping as little as 5% of your body weight can have a significant influence on blood pressure. The best approach is to eliminate all processed foods in favor of a natural diet including plenty of fresh vegetables and leafy greens, nuts, seeds, lean protein and healthy monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats. Avoid sugar, sweetened beverages and fruit juices as well as refined wheat based carbohydrates which have been linked with increased blood pressure and heart disease.

Blueberries have demonstrated a marked effect on lowering blood pressure by reducing free radical damage to the endothelium. Blueberries are packed with polyphenols that have been shown to lower LDL cholesterol oxidation while reducing deadly arterial plaque buildup. The results of a study published in The Journal of Nutrition confirm that adding blueberries to your diet for 8 weeks can lower blood pressure readings by up to 6%.

Natural Nutrients That Lower Blood Pressure

Pomegranate Extract: Pomegranate has been hailed as a powerful natural nutrient which provides support for the heart and blood pressure. Research has shown that the chemical compounds available in pomegranate extract are potent antioxidants and ACE inhibitors which dilate the blood vessels to lower blood pressure.

Grape Seed Extract: Grape seed extract is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to inhibit a specific protein which degrades the function of the inner arterial lining causing it to harden. Through this action it has a demonstrated ability to naturally lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of coronary artery disease by increasing blood levels of friendly nitric oxide.

Magnesium: The mineral magnesium is critical to many biochemical functions throughout the body and many people are grossly deficient due to eating a diet packed with nutrient-stripped processed foods and mineral depletion from poor farming practices. Magnesium works in conjunction with calcium, potassium and vitamin D providing essential support for proper muscle relaxation which assists blood pressure management.

It`s common practice for mainstream medicine to immediately prescribe drugs to lower the growing number of people presenting with high blood pressure. Research has shown that this is dangerous and increases the risk of premature death. The best strategy is to naturally lower blood pressure by eliminating all processed foods, losing weight and supplementing with a host of super nutrients that lead to lower disease risk and optimal health.
