Natural Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure

You don't need to suffer from high blood pressure any longer, and you don't necessarily need medications to lower it. Just as many lifestyle factors can elevate one's blood pressure, making intentional, positive changes to those same lifestyle factors can also help you naturally lower it. Better yet, the more of the following natural ways to lower your blood pressure that you implement at once, the better your chances may be of achieving your normal blood pressure levels faster and easier. 

 

Lower Your Stress


Stress is one of the key contributors to high blood pressure, which means lowering your stress can be one of the most potent and effective ways to reduce it. There are many ways to lower your stress, among them naturally:


  • Avoid stressful situations when possible. You can't avoid all stressful situations, but you can certainly avoid stress triggers, such as rush-hour traffic or constant phone interruptions to your focused intentions.
  • Engage in intentional relaxation activities. Stretch or meditate. Take a long bath. Sit by a fire or outdoors on a sunny day in the shade and read a book.
  • Get good sleep. That means sleeping a sufficient amount of time every night. It can help if you get yourself on a regular sleep schedule. While you sleep, your body resets all the circadian rhythms that help it support you in having the energy, focus, and mental calm to perform all the activities your waking life demands.
  • Check your expectations and lower any you may decide are too high. Don't try to do too much or make everyone happy by saying "Yes" to every request they make of you. Realize you cannot control or change everything, but you can always change and control how things affect you and how you react to them. 

 

Lose Weight 

 

Excess weight is one of the most significant contributors to high blood pressure. So, naturally, conversely, shedding that weight and maintaining your normal, healthy weight can help lower your high blood pressure and restore normal blood pressure levels. 


In addition to the burden of carrying around that excess weight, being overweight or obese also places strain on your blood pressure by putting you at greater risk of sleep apnea or other breathing difficulties while you sleep. These can also elevate your blood pressure. 


As you lose weight to lower your blood pressure, keep in mind that the weight around your waist, according to the Mayo Clinic, plays a particularly significant role in your risk of higher blood pressure. 

 

Eat a Low-Blood-Pressure Diet


What you eat, and don't eat, can also contribute significantly to your blood pressure levels. Pay attention to what you eat, even keeping a food diary if that'll help, so you can identify areas where you may be able to make helpful changes. In particular, find ways to increase your potassium intake while decreasing your sodium intake.


Decreasing sodium is a simple matter of eating less salt. That means avoiding adding salt to meals and reading labels to ensure that the packaged foods you buy don't contain excessive salt amounts. Increasing potassium is a matter of eating more fruits and vegetables. 


As a bonus, eating a low-blood-pressure diet is another way to help you lose weight. 

 

Exercise

 

Another way to lose weight can also help you naturally lower your blood pressure to exercise regularly. In particular, aerobic or cardiovascular exercise, that being the kind that raises your heart rate while you perform it, seems to provide the most significant blood pressure benefits.

 

Cut Out the Big 3


There are three major blood pressure risk factors that almost everyone is already aware of:


  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Caffeine


The less you intake of each of these, the less strain you may place on your blood pressure and, therefore, the easier it may be to restore and maintain healthy and normal blood pressure levels. According to the Mayo Clinic:


  • By limiting your alcohol intake to two drinks daily for men and one for women, you can reduce your blood pressure by 4 mm Hg approximately.
  • Each cigarette smoked raises the smoker's blood pressure for several minutes after finishing.
  • Caffeine can elevate blood pressure by as much as 10 mm Hg in those who infrequently drink it.

 

Incorporate Noto Ginseng

 

Notoginseng, also seen as noto ginseng, is a unique form of the well-known therapeutic herb ginseng grown natively in a single province in China. Farlong Pharmaceutical, panax notoginseng extract manufacture company, produces all the notoginseng they use in their notoginseng powder on their farm in that Chinese province. 


This particular form of ginseng has hundreds of years of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for various therapeutic purposes, among them helping to restore blood pressure to more normalized levels. It may also help to regulate:


  • Blood sugar
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood lipids


Panax notoginseng extract manufacture and distribution company, Farlong Pharmaceutical, prepares its noto ginseng powder in strict accordance with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards, including ensuring stringent controllability, sterilization, temperature control, safety, and quality.


Each bottle of Farlong's NotoGinseng Ultrafine Powder contains 300 grams of pure notoginseng powder.
