Answer is: They were all featured on The Dr. Oz Show (6/6/2012) to aid in lowering High Blood Pressure the natural way!
Did you know that approximately 20% of North Americans have high blood pressure, or hypertension?
It accounts for more than 35 million doctor office visits per year!
High blood pressure or Hypertension causes increased blood flow exerts undue pressure and stress against the walls of the blood vessels.
Bottom line is…healthy arteries are strong and smooth.
Arteries effected by hypertension are not.
When you have high blood pressure, your blood pumps through your vessels at a powerful force.
Over time this rough treatment to your vessels will cause damage to the walls of the arteries.
So where they should be smooth and strong, they will develope rough spots in them.
This will make the arteries prone to fat and calcium build up which is called plaque.
Plaque will block the blood flow.
It just goes down hill from there…if you have plaque build up, then your body is deprived from good blood flow to all of your organs.
You are then put at risk of:
etc….(I’m sure you are getting the picture!)
So here is some options from our beloved Dr. Oz :
CoQ10, Magnesium & Chromium Polynicotinate are 3 natural supplements that impress Dr. Oz.
First up is CoQ10 which is an antioxidant that helps lower blood pressure. If this is the option for you then take 200 mg per day.
Second option is Garlic. Dr. Oz said that he ate 1 clove of garlic each day! I would prefer taking a garlic supplement (just my opinion)!
Next up was Magnesium. The Dr. suggested taking 400 mg per day to get your blood pressure in shape.
Last, but not least was Chromium Polynicotinate, 200 mcg per day.
As always, check first with your doctor.
