High blood pressure is a serious condition that can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and other serious health problems. By taking steps to reduce stress and get moving, you can help your body regulate its blood pressure levels naturally.
Exercise is a great way to lower your blood pressure. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 days per week and aim for 30 minutes of exercise on most days. You can do this with or without equipment–it’s up to you!
• Go for a brisk walk around your neighborhood or at the park (you’ll want to be outside)
• Take an aerobics class at your local gym or dance studio
• Ride on an exercise bike for 30 minutes (or longer if you’re feeling up for it!)
Take Omega-3 Fish Oil And Other Supplements That Contain Essential Fatty Acids
A natural remedy for high blood pressure is to take omega-3 fish oil and other supplements that contain essential fatty acids. These are the fats that your body needs, but can’t produce on its own.
Omega-3 fish oils are considered a superfood because they have so many health benefits (they’re also good for your heart), says Dr Lane Sebring. They help lower cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation in the body, both of which can lead to lower blood pressure levels if you have high blood pressure or hypertension.
Take Magnesium And Calcium Supplements
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant that can help to reduce blood pressure. Calcium also helps to reduce the risk of heart disease and it’s good for bone health too! Magnesium and calcium should be taken together, Dr Lane Sebring as they work synergistically in your body. Magnesium and calcium can be taken as supplements or in food if you prefer not to take them individually (such as spinach).
