The juice that reduces high blood pressure

There are a number of steps you can take to reduce your risk of high blood pressure, including choosing healthier everyday habits and taking medication.

The body naturally produces nitric oxide, a gas that has extremely important functions in the body. The main one is to promote the dilation of blood vessels, thereby increasing blood flow and lowering blood pressure. This gas also helps to prevent blood clots, which can clog arteries and even cause a heart attack.

The problem is that, from the age of 40, the body’s ability to produce nitric oxide decreases by 50%. And this increases the risk of suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease and even a stroke. But how to put nitric oxide – a gas – inside the body?

And consequently saw the systolic and diastolic pressure fall.Not only. The British researchers also noted that patients had yet another impressive result:
