thanks in advance ms pat here.
High bp is a true pain in the booty isn't it? I have it too and my doc had put me on 10mg Lisinopril once daily, but I really hated having to take a bp pill at 25 years old! Last time I went in for a check up I asked the same question you are asking now, my doc told me that excersizing will really help out. You don't have to go crazy at the gym or anything, simple cardio like walking or jogging will suffice. I learned that excersizing will lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood glucose levels even if you never lose one single pound! Really try to avoid salt, it's difficult to if you're like me salty things are a weakness! You could try NO Salt, it really does taste like you salted your food but be careful of how much you put. The more you add, the worse the flavor! If you drink colas watch out how many you consume in a day they are really high in sodium. I love Dr. Pepper but it has 40 mg of sodium for just one can! You don't have to take things you love away from yourself, just limit how much of it you consume. It has really worked for me and that advice was given to me about 4 months ago. I have noticed a definate change in my bp, I cut back on my salt intake and I started out walking for 30 minutes once a day and now I am up to light jogging for an hour. My levels stay around the healthy range of 120/80 and I have felt so much better, I don't get those erradic spikes in my bp or those horrible headaches any more. I am still on my pill right now and I go back to my doc in 2 months so he can evaluate the possibility of taking me off of it, if you are on a pill now don't stop taking it without your doc's advice. I hope this will help you out some. Please, please always take your blood pressure seriously and never just ignore it. The higher it gets, the higher your risk for strokes! Good luck! =)
BP is determined by how much nitric oxide is in your system. Nitric Oxide is present in every tissue of the body. As disease sets in and bp goes up, the amount of nitric oxide that is produced goes down. L-arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide, which means it converts to nitric oxide in your cells. As you increase the amount of nitric oxide, oxygen is delivered more efficiently to every tissue of the body, lowering bp and helping the heart work more efficiently. In addition, every organ in your body works more efficiently. L-arginine is truly a miracle molecule.
