4. Watermelon Seeds

This one might sound strange, but it’s true; cucurbocitrin is a compound found in watermelon seeds that widen the capillaries. It also improves kidney function. This will lower blood pressure and even helps with arthritis. A Florida State pilot study performed in 2010 discovered that the vasodilator effect of watermelon seeds can lower blood pressure. To try this method, simply crush about 2 teaspoons of dried watermelon seeds to one cup of boiling water. Allow seeds to steep, covered, for one hour, then strain. Consume 4 tablespoon of this “tea” at regular intervals throughout the day.

 

5. Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek seeds lower blood pressure levels due to their high levels of potassium. Potassium binds with salt and removes it from the body, which will lower blood pressure. Boil two teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in one cup of water for two or three minutes, then strain. Place the boiled seeds in your blender and mix until it forms a paste. Separate the paste into two portions and consume one portion each morning and the other in the evening. This might take 8 weeks before you begin to get results, but many people swear by this method.

 

6. Garlic

There have been numerous studies showing that garlic is good for the heart because it lowers blood pressure levels. Both raw and cooked garlic will work to reduce cholesterol levels and by relaxing the blood vessels. Garlic also stimulates the production of hydrogen sulfide and nitric oxide. Garlic should be crushed or cut to release its active ingredient, allicin. Crush two cloves of organic garlic each day, wait about 10 minutes, and then swallow them whole if you can. If that is just too strong for you, add minced or cut up garlic into your salads, stir fry’s, or other foods. You can also consume a supplement, but speak to your doctor about the proper dosage.
