Supplements That Lend Themselves To Cardio-Vascular Health:

Cayenne
Cayenne has an active ingredient called capsaicin. Currently Capsaicin is being studied. The preliminary results of the studies are listed below: (Capsaicin Review Link)

  • "This brief overview should make it clear that dietary capsaicin—and, likely to a more limited degree, non-pungent capsiate—has intriguing potential for health promotion. Rodent studies suggest that capsaicin may merit clinical evaluation with respect to endothelial function, progression of atherosclerosis (most notably in diabetics), angina, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cardiac hypertrophy, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, obesity and gastric ulceration."
    • What this says is that Capsaicin is effective and has potential for health issues like;
      • Endothelial Function = Function of inner lining of blood vessels - (circulatory system)
      • Atherosclerosis = Deposit of plaque on artery walls causing a hardening of the arteries - (circulatory system)
      • Cardiac Hypertrophy = Thickening of the cardiac muscle resulting in smaller chambers of the heart. - (circulatory system)
      • Hypertension = High Blood Pressure - (circulatory system)

Garlic: Has traditional uses that range from immuno health to warding off vampires. The truth is that garlic is a valuable natural herb that has a positive effect on the circulatory system.

  • An article that reviews over one hundred seventy scientific studies offers this statement in the conclusion of the article. ( Effect of garlic on cardiovascular disorders: a review)
    • "The wealth of scientific literature supports the proposal that garlic consumption have significant cardioprotective effect, which include both animal and human studies."

Hawthorn Berry (Crataegus oxyacantha) is one of the best.

  • It has roots in Chinese medicine.
  • It has been noted in so many older herbal medicine journals as an effective herb for the cardio vascular system that it is the subject of scientific studies today.
  • This article; Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) in the treatment of cardiovascular disease is a review of such studies. In the conclusion of the review you can find this statement; Results recorded from clinical trials, experiences of professionally qualified medical herbalists, and the low/negligible incidence of side effects experienced by patients would indicate that Crataegus (Hawthorn Berries) preparations hold significant potential as a useful remedy in the treatment of CVD ( Cardio Vascular Disease ).
Turmeric; (Curcuma longa)
  • Turmeric, a spice that has long been recognized for its medicinal properties, has received interest from both the medical/scientific world as it is the major source of the polyphenol curcumin.
  • Curcumin aids in the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. (Curcumin: A Review of Its’ Effects on Human Health by Susan J. Hewlings and Douglas S. Kalman; Published online 2017 Oct 22. doi: 10.3390/foods6100092 PMCID: PMC5664031 PMID: 29065496)
  • Turmeric has shown some promising results with athrosclerosis.
    • Atherosclerosis is a disease of the arteries characterized by the deposition of plaques of fatty material on their inner walls. It effects the performance of the whole cardio system.
  • According to the University of Michigan Medicine "Turmeric's active compound curcumin has shown potent anti-platelet activity in animal studies. It has also demonstrated this effect in preliminary human studies."
  • "Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is a polyphenol responsible for the yellow color of the curry spice turmeric. It has been used in a variety of diseases in traditional medicine. Modern scientific research has demonstrated its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anti-thrombotic, and cardiovascular protective effects." Article - ( The protective role of curcumin in cardiovascular diseases.  2009 Apr 3;133(2):145-51. doi: 10.1016/j.ijcard.2009.01.073. Epub 2009 Feb 23. Authors - Wongcharoen W, Phrommintikul A.)
Folic Acid
  • It is well known that increased blood volume due to pregnancy can lead to high blood pressure.
    • Folic acid is an important supplement for a baby’s development in the womb.
    • Studies suggest folic acid may have the additional benefit of reducing the risk of hypertension during pregnancy.
  • Therefore taking high doses of folic acid might also help to slightly reduce blood pressure in both men and women whose blood pressure is high, as shown in a 2009 meta-analysis.

Vitamin D
  • Low levels of vitamin D have been linked to hypertension. Yet, a clinical review of 11 studies found that vitamin D supplements had a very minor effect on diastolic blood pressure, and no effect on systolic in people with high blood pressure.
    • The advice here is not to expect Vitamin D to lower your blood pressure but know that a lack of vitamin D might allow your blood pressure to increase.
    • We feel that some supplementation might be a healthy choice if you display any of the pre-hypertension signs (over weight, high cholesterol)
  • It’s important to get adequate vitamin D, even its effects on high blood pressure may be minor.

Magnesium
  • The mineral magnesium is used by your body to regulate healthy cell function.
  • Magnesium also assists in muscle fiber contractions.
  • Some studies have linked magnesium to controling blood pressure however the results of the rest of the studies conflict with that hypothisis.
  • Magnesium is effective in managing the mental fatigue that is caused by stress. In a round about way there might be somthing to using magnesium as a supplement to hedge the bet against blood pressure issues.
  • Magnesium was analized in a review of 37 studies that did show it as having a small effect on blood pressure.


Potassium
  • Potassium helps counteract the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The American Heart Association also points out that potassium helps decrease pressure on your artery walls. Studies support potassium supplements as a treatment to lower blood pressure.

Why should I be so concerned about my blood pressure?

Blood pressure is called the silent killer. Why? Because without giving a person a singal sign blood pressure can sky rocket and do harm like a heart attack or a stroke or even become a life ending event. There are so many people that are litterally ticking time bombs and don't even know it.

The CDC reports the following statistics about blood pressure in the United States:
  • Having high blood pressure puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, which are leading causes of death in the United States.
  • About 75 million American adults (32%) have high blood pressure—that’s 1 in every 3 adults.
  • About 1 in 3 American adults has prehypertension—blood pressure numbers that are higher than normal—but not yet in the high blood pressure range.
  • Only about half (54%) of people with high blood pressure have their condition under control.
  • High blood pressure was a primary or contributing cause of death for more than 410,000 Americans in 2014—that’s more than 1,100 deaths each day.
  • High blood pressure costs the nation $48.6 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medications to treat high blood pressure, and missed days of work.


Are there ways to control my blood pressure?

Lose Excess Weight:
  • One thing that almost everyone agrees on is that being over weight is a health risk.
  • Blood pressure often increases as weight increases. Being overweight also can cause disrupted breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea), which further raises your blood pressure.
  • Weight loss is one of the most effective lifestyle changes for controlling blood pressure.
    • Losing even a small amount of weight if you're overweight or obese can help reduce your blood pressure. In general, you may reduce your blood pressure by about 1 millimeter of mercury (mm Hg) with each kilogram (about 2.2 pounds) of weight you lose.
Exercise!!!:

  • What goes along with weight loss... EXERCISE!
  • Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure. It doesn't take much, only about 30 minutes a day 4 to 5 days per week.
    • It's important to be consistent though. If you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again. And inconsistant exercise sessions can be hard on you physically and mentally. Consistant exercise will build into a healthy routine over time where as being inconsistant can be a source of stress (also bad for blood pressure)
  • If you have elevated blood pressure, exercise can help you avoid developing hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels.
  • Here are some aerobic exercises to utilize to manage your blood pressure:
    • Walking
    • Jogging
    • Cycling
    • Swimming
    • HIIT Exercises - (high-intensity interval training), which involves alternating short bursts of intense activity with subsequent recovery periods of lighter activity.
    • Strength training also can help reduce blood pressure. Aim to include strength training exercises at least two days a week.
  • Most importantly you need to talk to a specialist with knowledge about healthy exercise programs about developing an exercise program adequate for your needs.
A HEALTHY Diet:
  • There are a lot of fad diet out and about right now. They all claim to offer you a healthy fit body. Don't be fooled... Nothing good ever comes from starvation or eating an excess of one thing or another. A healthy diet consisted of fruits, vegetables, WHOLE grains and something to provide protein. Any diet that loads up on one food type and starves you on another food type is a temporary fix to a long term problem. If you are over weight I know that you've read and maybe even tried them all.
  • Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower s one of the most important alterations to make in your lifestyle when trying to control bolld pressure naturally.
  • Two helpful suggestions for changing and managing your diet:
    • Keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat and then you might even try to put a finger on why you ate at that particular time or that particular food. Then let the light shine on your diet...
    • Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you're dining out, too.
Manage That STRESS:

  • Chronic stress may contribute to high blood pressure.
    • More research is needed to determine the effects of chronic stress on blood pressure.
    • If you react to stress by eating unhealthy food, drinking alcohol or smoking you might also be sending your blood pressure up to the stratosphere (oha nad that's not a good thing).
  • The remedy is to take some time to think about what causes you to feel stressed. It could be something at work, in your family, with your finances or even an illness.
    • Once you know what's causing your stress, you can take steps to aviod or put up a defense against those things.
Monitor Your Blood Pressure:
  • It is said: "That which is not tracked (monitored) is not controled."
  • A simple enough principle is to monitor your blood pressure. Know how high and how low your blood pressure is during different times of the day.
  • Monitoring your blood pressure helps you understand which of the above processes are working best for you. It also lets you know if there is something specific that effects your blood pressure.
    • Questions that are answered because your are monitoring and recording the resullts will help you understand the sources of your stress, the types of foods that have the most effect (good or bad) on your blood pressure and whether the exercise program is working or not.
  • Monitoring and recording your blood pressure can also be useful information if you ever need to sit in front of a doctor to talk about other types of remedies if all of the above list isn't effective enough.

Health Information

What is Blood Pressure?

Systolic blood pressure is when your heart beats, it squeezes and pushes blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. This force creates pressure on those blood vessels, and that's your systolic blood pressure.

  • A normal systolic pressure is below 120.
  • A reading of 140 or more is high blood pressure (also called hypertension

The diastolic reading, or the bottom number, is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This is the time when the heart fills with blood and gets oxygen.

  • A normal diastolic blood pressure is lower than 80.
  • 90 or higher is high blood pressure.

How Often Should I Get My Blood Pressure Checked?

  • If your blood pressure is normal (less than 120/80), get it checked at least every 2 years or more frequently as your doctor suggests.
  • If your blood pressure is borderline high (called prehypertension) --
  • systolic blood pressure between 120 and 139
  • diastolic blood pressure of 80 to 89 --
  • check it at least every year or more often as your doctor suggests. Depending on whether you have other medical issues, a “borderline” reading might be considered too high.
