    Nutrients that Reduce High Blood Pressure

    * Omega-3 Fats

    It is because of their alpha-linolenic acid content omega-3 fatty acids promote a good blood circulation. These omega-3 acids make it less likely for blood platelets to form clumps in the blood, possibly causing heart attacks. Foods that contain this nutrient are:

    Salmon

    Trout

    Tuna fish

    * Garlic

    Garlic significantly lowers the blood pressure for people suffering from hypertension. Due to its blood thinning and purifying properties, garlic is an important nutrient in any blood pressure reduction diet.

    Oats

    Beans and peas

    Rice bran and barley

    Citrus fruits

    For high blood pressure. I would recommand drinking this fruit juice call: Xango. One bottle a day. It is not cheap.. but the blood pressure of my family members' became normal.

    XanGo juice provides a great antioxidant.

    But, when drinking it.. be careful because drinking it too much can actually create LOW blood pressure!

    You might want to do more research on it.

    here are some information on this product.

    I hope your mother becomes better!

    You can buy this product online. (States/Canada etc...) even try yahoo bid.

    One bottle a day is what my grandfather does... please do drink this depending on your personal health :)! You need to drink this for a couple of months to see the result... there are no results instantly. (according to my grandfather).

    Best,
