What is high blood pressure?
Our bodies need oxygen to survive. In order for our organs to receive oxygen, blood is forced out from the heart to other parts of the body. Throughout the day the pressure of the blood will move from low to high. However, when a person has high blood pressure (HBP) their blood pressure stays high more than it should.
The problems caused by high blood pressure.
When the blood pressure stays high it can cause the arteries to over stretch. Thus, allowing other problems to occur such as tissue and organ damage, cholesterol and plaque build-up, increased risk of blood clots, and vascular weakness. If it’s left untreated the end result is a heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney failure, and other health related problems.
Many times people are unaware that they have high blood pressure. Therefore, it is always adviced to get check regularly.
How can Moringa Oleifera reduce high blood pressure?
It's a fact that certain foods can increase or decrease blood pressure. However, keep in mind that the body needs calcium, magnesium, and potassium to manage blood pressure. Moringa Oleifera contains 4 times more potassium than bananas, 14 times more calcium than milk, and one serving of Moringa Oleifera contains 61% daily value of magnesium. Moringa Oleifera also includes iron, vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and other nutritional properties that contribute to overall good health.
Calcium is essential for healthy blood pressure because it helps blood vessels tighten and relax when it needs to. Magnesium helps blood vessels relax, energy production, bone development, and transport calcium and potassium. Potassium plays an important role by helping to keep the brain functioning at a normal level, preventing strokes in the brain, and regulating the heartbeat. Potassium helps contract and relax the walls of the blood vessels. All and all it reduces blood pressure, stress, improves brain health, muscle cramping, and promotes a healthy nervous system.
