Pineapple-Beet Smoothie That Reduce Hypertension Naturally! How to Prepare it?

pineapple-beet-smoothie-that-reduce-hypertension-naturally-how-to-prepare-it(NaturalNews) – High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a serious and common condition that can lead to life-threatening diseases such as heart attack, stroke, heart or kidney failure, and more. It is the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the USA and more than 90% of Americans can expect to develop it in their lifetime. According to a report from the American Heart Association, hypertension contributes to nearly 1,000 deaths per day.

What are the causes?

People can have high blood pressure for years without experiencing symptoms or knowing that they have it. The risk of high blood pressure increases with age as arterial walls lose their elasticity. There can be many contributing factors such as:

-More stress
-Excess use of medications
-Being overweight
-Lack of physical activity
-Drinking too much alcohol
-Excessive salt consumption

What Are The Symptoms?

Dizziness or dizzy spells
Headache
Nosebleeds

Although medications can lower hypertension, they may cause side effects such as leg cramps, dizziness, and insomnia. A study conducted by the American Heart Association showed that people with high blood pressure who drank 8 ounces (1 cup) of beets and pineapple juices per day experienced a decrease in blood pressure. The reason it works so fast: Beets contain dietary nitrate, which your body converts to a gas that expands blood vessels and aids blood flow.
