At the first signs of trouble, important
to take action. Medication and lifestyle
changes can be very effective in reducing high blood pressure, and the same
strategies for reducing blood pressure can
also be used to reduce heart attack risk.
Below is a list of ways to maintain healthy
blood pressure levels, and reduce them if
gotten too high.
Amidren The Once Daily
Male Performance Formula
Recently, scientists and physicians have
identified how to address a condition in men
called Andropause. What they discovered is
that while testosterone is a key hormone for
male performance, not the only hormone
that needs to be addressed. Amidren is the
first complete male hormone modulating
formula designed to help increase testosterone
and restore optimal hormonal balance to
address the degenerative effects of
Andropause. Whether at work, in the
gym or with your partner, let declining
hormones affect your performance.

Dietary Interventions to Reduce Elevated Blood Pressure
The eating plan known as Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH)
was designed to help treat or prevent
high blood pressure. The DASH
published results showed a systolic
blood pressure reduction of 11 mmHg
and a diastolic blood pressure reduction of mmHg among patients with
prehypertension who followed the plan.
The diet emphasizes plenty of vegetables, fruits and low-fat dairy foods, plus
moderate amounts of whole grains,
fish, poultry and nuts. It also sets a
maximum intake of 2,300 mg of sodium
per day. Depending upon your personal
needs, daily calorie intake can range
to lower blood pressure. Other nutrients
taken in the form of a supplement can
further enhance your results. For example, supplements that work to increase
blood flow, improve blood vessel function and decrease inflammation have all
been shown to improve blood pressure
readings. Studies looking at vitamin
C, resveratrol and the omega-3s found
in fish oil also show positive effects on
blood pressure. For those who enjoy
dark chocolate, even more good
news: A 2012 review of 20 different studies showed that chocolate and cocoa
products can significantly reduce blood
pressure. because dark chocolate,
in particular, contains large amounts of
powerful antioxidants called flavanols.
So, the takeaway here? important to remember that elevated blood
pressure, for most people, is generally preventable. Maintaining and even reducing
blood pressure ideally involves establishing a healthy BMI, limiting salt intake and
adopting a DASH-type diet rich in fruits,
vegetables and low-fat dairy products.
Dietary supplements that improve blood
vessel function and reduce inflammation
can also help tremendously. Finally, limit
your alcohol intake and avoid cigarettes
altogether. Soon be on your way to
a longer, happier and healthier life.
