High Blood Pressure Cures
& Calcium: Treat High Blood Pressure By Getting The Recommended
Amount Of Your Daily Nutrients"
Lets get back to the simple food
sources, nutrients and vitamins that can help you naturally reduce High
Pressure. Last time we talked over minimal alcohol
consumption and why
too much alcohol is a very bad thing, and we discussed the importance
of potassium. Lets now go over some other nutrients such
and calcium. Calcium and magnesium can both naturally
aide in curing high blood pressure.
Magnesium, the Wonder
Magnesium is a micronutrient found in
the bones, body tissues and organs of the body. It is necessary for
normal muscle and nerve function, steady heartbeat, strong bones and a
healthy immune system. Potassium and magnesium actually work together
in the body, so if you have low magnesium levels, it's likely your
potassium levels will be low as well.
It is recommended that most people get
around 400 milligrams of magnesium a day. Again, taking
diuretics may flush magnesium from your body, so supplementation or
eating extra foods rich in magnesium may be necessary.
There is not as much evidence
regarding magnesium's effectiveness in treating high
blood pressure as
there is for potassium, but the DASH diet calls for 500 milligrams of
magnesium daily and many studies suggest that a combination of
potassium, magnesium (and often calcium) and fiber are protective of
the heart and can reduce high blood pressure. It's relatively easy to
get your daily dose of magnesium. A cup of black beans, for example,
has 120 milligrams and two ounces of almonds have 156

Calcium is the third member of the
nutrient trio that is often mentioned as important for the reduction of
high blood pressure. Most people know that calcium helps keep the bones
and teeth healthy, but it's also essential for the proper functioning
of muscles and nerves and helps blood clot.
There is no consensus as to whether
calcium supplementation is helpful for curing high blood
but, again, it was one of the nutrients that the DASH study focused on.
It recommends 1,250 milligrams a day, while the RDA is 1,000 milligrams
for most adults. Eight ounces of calcium-fortified orange juice gets
you 250 milligrams, while a cup of reduced or nonfat milk has 300
Even if calcium does not lower high
blood pressure, most studies agree that having low levels of calcium
can raise blood pressure, so it is important to try to get the
recommended amount of calcium, whether through supplements or diet.
