Wired It Recommends 12 Steps Without Resorting To Any Medication.

1. Walk Briskly

    Hypertensive patients can count on healthy walks at a steady pace, in fact, physical exercise helps the heart to "use" oxygen more efficiently and thus blood is pumped more vigorously. An advice? A brisk 30-minute walk a day is a good way to start. Later on, you can also lengthen the distance to go, challenging yourself.

2. Breathe Deeply

   Do you want to keep rennin at bay? Start taking care of your breathing. To keep rennin, the proteolytic enzyme secreted by the kidneys that increases blood pressure, under control, one can turn to meditative practices such as qigong, yoga and tai chi. 5 minutes in the morning and 5 in the evening, will help you to remove stress hormones and cleanse tensions. Seeing is believing.

3. Potassium

   Potassium can be a decisive ally for your well-being and therefore, do not skimp on fruits and vegetables to be able to ingest between 2,000 and 4,000 mg a day. What to eat? Sweet potatoes, tomatoes, bananas, beans, peas, prunes and raisins.

4. Sodium War

   Sodium is, however, to be avoided at all costs for those suffering from hypertension and in general the experts advise not to ingest more than 1,500 mg a day. How much are we talking about? Keep in mind that half a teaspoon of salt contains 1,200 mg of sodium! But most of the sodium we ingest in the dishes and therefore, eyes on the labels: better than a savory dish.

5. Dark Chocolate

   Dark chocolate will soothe the lack of salt for hypertensive patients, given that this tasty dish contains flavanols, capable of making blood vessels more elastic. 15 grams of dark chocolate per day will be for you, as long as they contain at least 70% cocoa.

6. A Small Glass Yes. Two no.

   Obviously no doctor will ever tell you to raise your elbow yet drinking moderate amounts of alcohol a day, according to several researches, not only helps prevent heart disease but could help your blood pressure decrease. Obviously we talk about minimal quantities: from a quarter to half of 0.34 liters of beer (or 0.14 liters of wine) per day. Without cheating.

7. From Coffee To Dek

    Scientists have long debated the fate reserved for caffeine for hypertensives, but a study by Duke University has established that this substance should be avoided simply because it is a constrictor. And the situation gets worse under stress: the heart pumps faster and the pressure inevitably rises. Better to switch to decaf.

8. Better a Hibiscus Tea

  Researchers at Tufts University pointed out that participants in a study who sipped three hibiscus tea cups found a net decrease in systolic blood pressure by as much as 7 points in 6 weeks on average (who took a placebo had only one point of decrease). The phytotherapy properties of the hibiscus therefore seem able to decrease high blood pressure and since many herbal teas are rich, it is worth using them.

9. Work a Little Less

   With the current economic crisis it is difficult to imagine a relaxed life in the office but it is certain that working too much puts up the pressure and not only for direct stress: being late in the office, often involves frugal and erroneous meals and prevents you from going to the gym or Playing sports. California University studied 24,205 subjects and 15% of these, having spent 41 hours in the office, had an increase in hypertension. Put a timer on your PC and as soon as possible ... run home.

10. Musical Relaxation

   According to researchers at the University of Florence, if hypertensives are free to choose which music to listen to every day, in total relaxation, for 30 minutes a day, the effects are assured. 28 adults already treated with drugs, found 3.2 points less than average systolic pressure in a week and 4.4 points less after one month.

11. Better Not To Snore

   Alabama University researchers have shown that most people who suffer from sleep apnea have high levels of aldosterone, a hormone that can increase blood pressure. So treating sleep apnea not only will make you rest better but, as aldosterone decreases, pressure should also decrease.

12. W Soy

   According to the Journal of the American Heart Association, by replacing some refined carbohydrates with foods rich in soy or milk proteins, circulation can be markedly improved and therefore, hypertension reduced. So watch your diet.
