Old age, excess weight, stress, a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, smoking, thyroid disorders and genetics are all among the main factors for high blood pressure. Hypertension is a complex disorder that makes it difficult for doctors to identify the cause. It’s one of the “silent killer” types of diseases as it often develops without manifesting through specific symptoms.
This is why blood pressure tests are so important. The tests measure the force of blood exerted on the blood vessels – the first number measures the pressure of the heart when it’s beating, while the second measures the pressure when the heart is at rest. In cases of long term high blood pressure, it can lead to increased resistance to blood flow in the vessels which will make the heart work harder. This may lead toward heart failure, stroke and other life-threatening conditions such as:
- Kidney disease;
- Sexual problems.
However, all of this can be prevented by some simple dietary and lifestyle changes.
Doctors usually prescribe diuretics, beta blockers or ACE inhibitors for high blood pressure which can control it. However, they also have side-effects such as insomnia, leg cramps, respiratory problems, dizziness, headaches, fatigue and depression, which is why you should opt for natural remedies. We’re going to show you a simple drink that is based on natural ingredients and can control your blood pressure without side-effects. Here’s how to prepare it:
- 1 garlic bulb
- ½ a liter of red wine
- 1 glass bottle
Preparation and use
Chop the garlic well, then add the pieces to a glass bottle. Next, pour the wine and close the bottle, then leave it in a sunny area for 15 days. After that period, strain the drink and keep the liquid in a new bottle.
Take one tablespoon of the remedy 3 times a day before your meals. When you finish a bottle, make a new batch and drink it after a 15-day break. The remedy will keep your blood pressure in check and prevent numerous cardiovascular problems.
