Blood Pressure Diet Tips
* While 140/80 was once considered the threshold of arterial pressure, 130/80 milliliters of mercury took its place as the magic number. While 75 million Americans - nearly a third of the adult population - were already suffering from high blood pressure, this new calibration will add 4.2 million people to this unlucky club, which indicates an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and other health consequences that alter life along the way.
* Crazy. Also, tea. Yes, tea is good, and may be good for you in my opinion. But here is something to consider. My 51-year-old friend drank tea religiously almost all her life. She lived well, ate well and drank tea. Did not smoke. She has just died of ovarian cancer. So what is your suggestion here? Bottom line .. many diseases are inherited. Hypertension and cardiovascular diseases are among them. No mention here of that.
* Wish me good luck! High BP story in my family. I knew it and quickly became the finest and most fit in my family forever, pushing 50, just went to doc ole and my bp was 170 + / 90+, obviously wanted me on BP MED. heck no. So I did some research ... and I found cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar mother version! I'm not kidding, the wedding, I saw doc, by wed nite, I started to take 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper that nite, I also started to take spoon ACV 2 soup soup tonight.

I signed up for your plan of action against high cholesterol and Paleo code.
* I still do not complete it, I use it with food. Ubiquinol - My Profile Metametrix Organic Acids showed that I really needed CoQ10. I discovered that once I started taking 100 mg of Ubiquinol twice a day, my blood pressure dropped. I also tend to agree with Ben on what is considered high. I think I run naturally a little higher, but I know my heart is in good shape. My cholesterol is stellar with a very high HDL, and my resting heart rate is about 51.
