There’s been an interesting piece of research floating around that says eating more meat, yes…meat, might actually help to lower your blood pressure.
Do you struggle with high blood pressure? Is your doctor telling you to take all kinds of prescription medications to keep your blood pressure low? Perhaps there is an alternative route that allows you to lower blood pressure with L-Arginine and stay off of those prescriptions…
Talk to your doctor about the research conducted on L-Arginine; how L-Arginine has been clinically proven to increase blood flow; and how L-Arginine combined with L-Carnitine can help keep your blood pressure low.
In the meantime, let’s take a look at this recent research about eating more protein…
Experts have suggested a diet high in protein could be a lower risk of developing high blood pressure.
High protein foods include beans, lentils, nuts, mackerel, pulses, tuna, turkey and chicken.
Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine – BUSM – found participants consuming the highest amount of protein has a 40 per cent lower risk of having high blood pressure compared to those who didn’t eat high levels of protein.
This is amazing news!! How much chicken and tuna do you eat? how much fish and nuts do you eat? These should be staples in your diet if you’re trying to avoid hypertension and keep your blood pressure low.
A further study by researchers from the University of East Anglia, found people who eat high levels of amino acids – which are found in meat and plant-based protein have lower blood pressure and arterial stiffness.
This means adding spinach, meat, fish and dairy products – food high in protein – could be beneficial.
Experts even believe the link could be as strong as cutting salt intake, exercising, cutting down on alcohol and stopping smoking.
How can you add more protein to your diet? Consider adding lentils and nuts and chicken to your salads. Try fish this week! Instead of that fast food stop for lunch, consider packing some tuna salad.
There are so many ways to maintain a healthy diet in order to lower blood pressure.
