Lower your blood pressure and save money at the same time

If you have high blood pressure, there's a very simple way to lower it. It doesn't cost anything. In fact, it may save you some money. And you can see results very quickly.

This new information comes from a new study out of Louisiana State University. Dr. Liwei Chen led a team that followed 810 adults with borderline hypertension. The study lasted for 18 months. At the outset, the participants drank on average one 12-oz sugar-sweetened serving each day. The researchers simply asked the participants to cut their consumption. Those who were able to knock out the sugar drink totally reduced their systolic pressure by 1.8 and the diastolic by 1.1.

Even a small decrease in blood pressure can significantly reduce your risk of vascular events. And over time, I believe the drop would be even greater. Sugar increases insulin, the hormone of aging and death. Insulin will raise your blood pressure. Sugar might also make your blood thicker. Increased viscosity is a major heart disease risk. It also leads to a need for higher pressure to move the thick blood.

Please eliminate sugary foods from your diet. That includes high fructose corn syrup. However, this does NOT include fruit! The natural fiber, vitamins, minerals and water in fruit are what God designed for human consumption.

Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?

Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

While you are cutting sugar, you might want to increase your vitamin C. Researchers recently studied the vitamin C levels of 242 women. They found that subjects in the highest fourth of plasma vitamin C levels had systolic blood pressure 4.66 mm Hg lower and diastolic blood pressure 6.04 mm Hg lower than those in the lowest fourth of plasma ascorbic acid levels.

These are two really easy ways to get a handle on your blood pressure! One could save you money and the other costs only pennies a day. Vitamin C is very inexpensive and available at any grocery store.
