EAT MORE CHOCOLATE.....
A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that eating or drinking cocoa lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of death in older men. Substances known as flavan-3-ols and antioxidants found in dark chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure and improve the function of cells lining the blood vessels.
Men who ate chocolate regularly over a 15-year study were found to have lower blood pressure than those who didn't, even when weight, smoking, physical activity and other factors were taken into account.
This doesn't mean you should run out and start gobbling up candy bars, however. The most protective compounds are found in dark chocolate, and it should still only be consumed in small quantities. And it's not as clear that the benefits exist for women, but it couldn't hurt to try, now, could it?
Relax, sleep, enjoy a day in the sun and eat some dark chocolate, it can only help in your fight against High Blood Pressure. Not to mention a nice Natural High Blood Pressure Treatment!
