Let’s face it, millions of Americans have high blood pressure. There are dozens of different types of medications that help reduce your number; but do you ever wonder if there is a natural way for you to reduce your blood pressure? Well, research shows eating 3-4 stalks of celery or drinking celery juice helps to significantly lower blood pressure.
The main ingredient in the celery seed that helps lower blood pressure is phthalides. Phthalides help relax the heart vessels and allow blood to pass through the arteries more freely, resulting in lowering of blood pressure.
Celery Juice also helps with:
- Strokes and heart attacks
My prescription for you:
3 stalks of celery, 1 apple. (In a juicer not a blender)
Eat 4 stalks of celery
Have an exercise physiologist take your blood pressure before day one, and drink this juice once a day for one week; then retake your blood pressure at the end of that week and see what the difference in the number is.
Continue to drink in weeks to come. Just like weight loss you have to be consistent with your juice drinking, whether you’re taking medication or not. Do not stop taking any of your medication unless your doctor advises you to do so. This juice is just an added bonus for creating a healthier blood pressure number.
Also, if you have any dietary restrictions please check with your doctor first.
