Nutrients: Which to cut back on and which to increase to lower blood pressure...
In many cases, the old saying “you are what you eat” holds true. It might do some good to cut out a few of the cream sauces and slices of pizza.

But there are a handful of nutrients that could help you lower your blood pressure naturally.

The good news is you could beat high blood pressure - without drugs.

The building blocks of healthy blood pressure... 

Sodium. You’ve probably heard that cutting WAY back on salt intake is an important step in lowering high blood pressure. However, researchers are finding more and more evidence that sodium restriction might not be best for everyone after all. If you have high blood pressure you might want to determine through trial and error whether or not salt restriction makes a difference for you.

Potassium. Sometimes, it reduces blood pressure; Sometimes it doesn’t. Since a higher potassium level does reduce the risk of stroke, it’s always wisest to take extra potassium if you have high blood pressure, even if it doesn’t lower your actual blood pressure numbers.

Magnesium. It helps relax muscles, including those of the smaller blood vessels, thus helping to dilate them and improve blood flow. Supplementing with 300-400mg daily is usually sufficient.

Vitamin C. A recent research letter sent to the medical journal Lancet reconfirmed that vitamin C lowers elevated blood pressure. Although this study used less, you should take a minimum of 1g twice daily.

L-tryptophan and taurine. At least one study devoted to each demonstrated that L-tryptophan and taurine can lower blood pressure in essential hypertension (high blood pressure with no known cause).

The amount of L-tryptophan used was 3g daily. Quantities of taurine used in the study were relatively large (but safe) – 6g daily. However, when taurine is used in combination with other nutrients and botanicals, you need only 1 to 2g daily.

DHA. An important metabolite that helps lower blood-pressure levels is docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA (not to be confused with DHEA). This is an omega-3 fatty acid, a metabolite of the essential fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid. A recent study reported that 4g daily of DHA lowered blood pressure in hypertensive patients by a small but significant degree.

Try these nutrients to manage your blood pressure naturally.
