CUT BACK ON SUGAR TO REDUCE BLOOD PRESSURE

If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, try cutting back on sugar. You were probably told by your medical professional to cut back on salt but they often neglect to mention cutting back on sugar, too. Research has even shown that cutting out sweetened drinks and eating fewer desserts lowered blood pressure for 77% of the patients in the study within a 3 month period. Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum suggests the reason is because high blood sugar is irritating to artery walls so the less sugar you take in, the healthier and relaxed your blood vessels will be.
