High Blood Pressure? These Juices Can Help Reduce It

High blood pressure (hypertension) is when the pressure of the blood coursing through the arteries is considerably higher than it should be. This is generally due to the formation of arterial deposits in arteries (atherosclerosis), the thickening of blood or presence of blood clots, and the hardening of arteries (arteriosclerosis). When the arteries are narrow and inflexible, the blood passing through them increases in pressure, causing high blood pressure.

If your blood pressure is consistently high, it may be a sign of more serious cardiovascular problems. Readings above 120 (systolic) / 80 (diastolic) for adults becomes a risk factor for heart disease, aneurysm, heart failure, heart attack, kidney damage and stroke. Aging, poor diet, and lifestyle choices like smoking, alcohol abuse, and a sedentary lifestyle can all be contributing factors to high blood pressure.

Changing your dietary habits to consume more fruits and vegetables can help you lower your blood pressure naturally. Fruits and vegetables provide all the essential nutrients, anti-oxidants, phytonutrients and fiber that the body needs to regulate blood pressure. Chlorophyll-rich greens, carrots, celery, green apples, limes and lemons are all great foods for reducing blood pressure.
