WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE JUST WON’T GO DOWN !
It doesn't matter if EVERYTHING else you've tried has failed.
You're about to discover a breakthrough nutritional solution that can help you get your blood pressure under control—even if you've been struggling with it for years.
This FREE online report offers a three-step simple approach that really WORKS. It gets to the root of your problem by attacking the culprits that are causing your blood pressure to skyrocket in the first place.
When those three troublemakers are dealt with, it'll be easy for you to keep your blood pressure in the healthy range.
So why spend another day struggling with blood pressure problems?
If you're finding it downright impossible to maintain healthy blood pressure—even when you take several prescription medicines—what you're about to discover may shock you.
Researchers have found that a whopping 30% of the 74.5 million Americans struggling with their blood pressure suffer from a little-known health robber I call "Resistant Blood Pressure (RBP)." In other words...
...22.35 million folks continue to have blood pressure problems even though they:
This special BLOOD PRESSURE issue contains studies and research from leading institutions including...
Is that you or a loved one?
But today, I want to focus on blood pressure—YOUR blood pressure. And I want to show you how you can have healthy blood pressure naturally.
So my promise to you is this: Give me just 10 minutes of your time—and I will show you a breakthrough nutritional solution that helps you get your blood pressure under control—even if you've been struggling with it for years. In fact, you're about to discover...
In my practice, I've discovered the most successful way to keep your blood pressure healthy is to attack the three most overlooked culprits that can shoot your blood pressure through the roof. And this simple approach works—even when other attempts have failed in the past.
So follow this three-step approach—and you too can keep your blood pressure in the healthy range:
Each and every day, your blood pumps through 100,000 miles of arteries, veins and capillaries. The diameter of your veins and arteries affects the rate of blood flow and the amount of pressure needed to pass through your arteries. The bigger the opening, the less pressure is needed.
So what do you think happens when those blood vessels get lined with layers and layers of calcium plaque deposits?
You guessed it! The pathway narrows and your blood literally has to squeeze through those arteries and veins—causing your blood pressure to skyrocket.
Now, imagine a simple nutrient that can quickly help remove calcium from your blood vessels and keep them wide open for healthy blood flow.
It's called Vitamin K2. And here's why it's the first part of my three-step program for healthy blood pressure.
You probably know of the more common vitamin K1. This is the form of vitamin K that's readily available in green vegetables. And it's very important for normal blood clotting.
But vitamin K2—also known as menaquinone—is very different. Vitamin K2 is essential for your cardiovascular health because of its amazing ability to utilize calcium.
In fact, vitamin K2 acts like a shuttle bus. It moves unwanted calcium out of your arteries and delivers that calcium to your bones—where it's needed for bone health! Numerous studies show the amazing power of vitamin K2. For example...
The prestigious Rotterdam Study published in the Journal of Nutrition shows patients with the highest levels of vitamin K2 experience better cardiovascular health.
COMMON CAUSES OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE !!
An additional five-year follow-up study of more than 4,400 elderly patients confirmed the original findings: The more vitamin K2 in your body, the healthier your arteries!
But before you go taking any vitamin K2—please know this:
Not all vitamin K2 products are alike. In fact, most of the supplements on the market are downright misleading. Here's why:
Vitamin K2 contains many subtypes including MK-1 through MK-13. But without a doubt the subtype of vitamin K2 you need for healthy blood pressure is MK-7. This is the actual shuttle-bus nutrient that moves calcium out of your arteries and into your bones!
But since MK-7 is expensive to produce, most vitamin companies give you the cheaper and inferior MK-4 subtype. Don't settle for this—it won't get the job done for you!
You need the bioavailable and highly active long chain MK-7 to constantly help remove calcium from your arteries to keep blood vessels wide open for healthy blood flow and normal blood pressure!
MK-7 has been shown in numerous studies to actually extract calcium from the blood and arteries. These are the calcium deposits that can line the walls of your arteries—and make blood flow more difficult. My friend, do you understand what this means?
With this amazing nutrient, you can help keep your arteries clear of dangerous calcium plaque... promote healthy blood flow... keep your blood pressure healthy and under control... and strengthen your bones to boot! All without any nasty side effects!
Now after regularly removing calcium from your arteries with vitamin K2, you need this next step to promote healthy blood flow...
For optimal blood pressure—you need balanced levels of a gaseous molecule called Nitric Oxide (NO)
NO is naturally produced in your body from arginine and oxygen. Simply put, NO signals the surrounding blood vessels to relax.
When your blood vessels are relaxed, they can open up and allow blood to easily pass through. This widening process is called vaso dilation. And it's important because vaso dilation naturally INCREASES your blood flow and DECREASES your blood pressure.
NO can also help keep your blood platelets from sticking together and becoming thick like ketchup. Studies show that low levels of NO have been linked to blood pressure problems, as well as more serious heart problems.
The good news is: Mother Nature's pharmacy contains a remarkable nutrient that has a profound effect on your body's NO production. It's called Grapeseed Extract.
Numerous studies show the benefits of grapeseed extract when it comes to promoting healthy blood pressure. For example...
In a study presented at the FASEB 2007 conference, researchers tried to determine the effect of grapeseed extract on 22 patients with early signs of potential blood pressure problems. They selected this group because more than 69 million American adults fall into this category—putting them at a higher risk for serious heart problems.
The patients were divided into two groups: The grapeseed extract group was given 300 milligrams per day for eight weeks. The other group received a placebo. Blood pressure readings were recorded at the start and end of the test period. The results?
The grapeseed extract group reduced their systolic (upper number) blood pressure by 8.3 millimeters of mercury and their diastolic (lower number) by 5.7 mmHg! In other words, many of these folks were no longer worried about their blood pressure—it returned to the normal range!
Another similar study was conducted, but this time it included people with metabolic problems—which increase your risk of developing cardiovascular and blood sugar health scares.
After just four weeks, the study results showed the ones taking just 150 mg of grapeseed extract experienced a 13 mmHg drop in systolic and a 6 mmHg drop in diastolic blood pressure!
Here's what makes grapeseed extract such a powerful blood pressure aid...
...Turns out this amazing nutrient not only causes blood vessels to relax by controlling nitric oxide...
...It also has the uncanny ability to act as a natural calcium channel blocker—and prevent calcium from entering in the muscle cells of the heart and arteries!
This is phenomenal news because calcium causes plaque to build up in your arteries! With grapeseed extract, you have a natural plaque blocker at your disposal!
So far you've seen how you can help keep calcium out of your arteries with vitamin K2 and boost healthy production of nitric oxide to promote relaxed arteries for optimal blood flow with grapeseed extract.
Now, you need this third amazing nutrient to help keep your blood pressure healthy—especially when you're under stress...
Scientists know the enzyme called Angiotensin II is notorious for constricting blood vessels. This can cause damage to the lining of your blood vessels as the blood tries to squeeze through. It can also make your arteries hard and stiff.
What's more, this nasty enzyme can elevate your sodium levels—causing you to retain water—and raise your blood pressure.
But you can help stop production of Angiotensin II with Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitors!
And when you inhibit this enzyme—you can help prevent your arteries from stiffening, tightening and reducing blood flow.
The good news is: Research now shows an amazing superfruit contains natural ACE-inhibiting properties. And guess what? This nutritional powerhouse may already be in your refrigerator!
It's blueberries! Surprised?
Most folks are. But clinical trials and research studies now prove a highly concentrated form of blueberries may just be the unsung heroes for promoting healthy blood pressure. Take a look...
In one study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers treated cells with ACE. Then they exposed the cells to two different concentrations of blueberry extract. The results?
The cells treated with the highest concentration of blueberry extract inhibited ACE by a whopping 98%! Can you believe that? 98%! But that's not all...
You may not think you have high blood pressure—but if you're experiencing any of these early warning signs—get your blood pressure checked immediately:
And if your blood pressure reading is more than 120 over
80—this is your WAKE-UP call to ACT NOW!
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists discovered eating wild blueberries can help prevent oxidative stress. Remember, oxidative stress can trigger many serious health problems including hardening of the arteries and heart failure! Wild blueberries contain powerful antioxidants that combat free radical damage that cause oxidative stress!
Blueberries also contain polyphenols to fight inflammation that can weaken and even seriously damage your blood vessels—and lead to a serious heart or brain problem!
But James Joseph, Ph.D., from the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging reported in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience that polyphenols found in blueberries can improve brain function, enhance memory recall and douse the flames of inflammation!
Scientists at the University of California at Davis report blueberries can also reduce the build up of "bad" LDL cholesterol that contributes to cardiovascular problems.
Researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported results of an animal study showing blueberries were more effective in lowering cholesterol levels than the cholesterol medication, Ciprofibrater. Here's the proof...
All the hamsters in the study were fed a high-cholesterol diet. One group received blueberry skins and the other group received the drug. The results?
The drug group lowered their cholesterol levels by 17%. Not bad. But the blueberry group lowered their cholesterol levels by an astounding 37%! Much better—and safer than prescription drugs!
Researchers attributed the cholesterol-lowering effect to a compound in blueberries called pterostilbene (pronounced: "terr-oh-still-bean"). This is an amazing compound that causes your liver cells to remove excess cholesterol.
Was this study a fluke?
In another study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, Canadian researchers supplemented the diet of pigs with about 2 cups of blueberries a day. The result?
The pigs' low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or "bad cholesterol" dropped 20%! That's how powerful blueberries can be!
And since most of us don't eat 2... 4... or even 6 cups of blueberries every day—you see why I include a potent form of wild blueberry extract as part of my three-step program for healthy blood pressure. It's the final step to help you maintain healthy blood pressure—safely and naturally!
You probably know that your blood pressure can be high if you're overweight... suffer from blood sugar imbalances... or have kidney problems. But here are five more little-known causes of uncontrollable blood pressure:
When it comes to maintaining healthy blood pressure—you can see why the odds are stacked against you. Fortunately, you can take control of your blood pressure and keep it in the normal range—without dangerous drugs
Once I saw how well my three-step plan for battling blood pressure helped my patients, I worked closely to
The high fiber content and the ability to dissolve the "bad cholesterol" make blueberries an ideal nutrient to reduce your risk of cardiovascular problems. Take a look...
In a study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, researchers found that 4 ounces (oz.) of white wine contained .47 millimole per liter (mmol/L) of free radical absorbing antioxidants... red wine provided 2.04 mmol/L... but a wine made from high bush blueberries delivered a whopping 2.42 mmol/L of these protective compounds!
This is one reason why I searched diligently to find a top notch, potent form of blueberry extract to give a punch which delivers a powerful antioxidant concentration of anthocyans and polyphenols to protect you from damaging effects of free-radical damage and safeguard your circulatory system. In fact, 1 gram of wild blueberry extract contains a whopping 6,500 Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) units! That's MEGA antioxidant protection
I don't have to tell you that unhealthy blood pressure can be a serious problem. This "silent killer" can lead to serious heart and brain problems... blood sugar imbalances... out of control cholesterol... and kidney problems—just to name a few!
So knowing you have unhealthy blood pressure—or that you're at risk of developing high blood pressure—is a GOOD thing! Why? Because you can take action NOW to keep it in the normal range and maintain your precious health.
Take your height over 5 feet in inches, multiply by five.
Add 110 if you're a woman or 120 if you're a man.
That's your weight goal to help keep your blood pressure in the normal range!
You can fudge the numbers about 5% to 7%.
If you achieve the weight described by this formula, you shouldn't have high blood pressure from being overweight.
Let's take an example: Ralph is 5' 7"—that's 67 inches.
Seven times five is 35, add 120 and you get 155 pounds as Ralph's desired weight.
Now, if Marsha is 5' 7", her desired weight is 145.
Numerous studies show physical activity can drop your systolic (top number) by 4 mmHg and diastolic (bottom number) by 3 mmHg on average.
Try to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. And remember, it doesn't have to be strenuous exercise—a brisk walk with your dog can work wonders to promote healthy blood pressure!
