1. Eat more dark chocolate.
Almost everyone loves when we tell them to eat more chocolate. Just make sure the dark chocolate is between 60-70% cacao. The flavonoids in the chocolate help dilate, or widen, your blood vessels.
2. Get up and get active.
You don’t need to run a marathon to lower your blood pressure. A simple walk around the neighborhood 1 or 2 times a day can lower your systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
3. Eat less processed food.
Cutting down on — or even better, cutting out — processed food will help you eat less salt, less sugar, and fewer refined carbohydrates. All of this can result in lower blood pressure.
4. Reduce your stress.
Easier said than done right? There are lots of different ways to successfully relieve stress, so find what works for you. Practice deep breathing, take a walk, read a book, or watch a comedy.
5. Add more L-Arginine, Flax Seed Oil, and CoQ10 to your diet.
If your body has low levels of CoQ10, it can steal energy from your heart creating irregular blood flow, which in turn can lead to high blood pressure. People use flax seed to help treat several conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis and high cholesterol, dry eyes, "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. L-Arginine is an essential amino acid that converts into Nitric Oxide, thereby helping to promote healthy circulation.
