Protect Your Heart And Blood Pressure Now
Ingredients To Be Used
You will need 8 ounces of water, preferably filtered water. But tap water will do if you are satisfied with it.
You will thoroughly mix and stir the following substances in the water, and you can either add some raw honey or Stevia for a sweeter flavor to suit your taste.
As for myself, I either boil the water or microwave it for two minutes before I mix in the ingredients. However, you do not need to do this. You can drink it cold.
The following ingredients will be used:
- Ginger powder – 1/2 level teaspoon
- Raw cacao powder – 1 teaspoon
- Green cardamom powder – 1/2 level teaspoon
- L-Citrulline -follow instructions on the package. A measuring scoop comes with it. Ordinarily, one serving is one scoop.
Evidence That These Ingredients Protect Your Heart And Blood Pressure
Ginger has its origin in China. The underground part of its stem is what is ordinarily used to spice up foods or drinks. Ginger is well known for its diverse methods of alternative medicine.
In 2019, scientists analyzed six randomized studies, including 345 participants, to ascertain if ginger is beneficial for blood pressure (BP). The result of this analysis showed that ginger significantly reduced systolic BP and diastolic BP.
In another study, dated December 8, 2020, scientists reviewed if ginger can protect the heart.
The researchers determined that ginger is useful for heart problems and heart health. They stated that ginger could protect the heart because it is:
- cardiotonic (a substance that can protect your heart)
- antihypertensive (used to treat high blood pressure)
- anti-hyperlipidemic (helps to lower the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the bad cholesterol), to reduce triglyceride levels, and to help increase the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (good cholesterol)
- anti-platelet ( can decrease the chance of a heart attack by preventing abnormal clotting in the arteries)
Cocoa has been proven to protect the heart significantly. For example, Panama’s Kuna Indians have almost nonexistent problems with heart disease and high blood pressure.
Scientists discovered that when the members of these tribes moved to the cities and stopped their cocoa’s daily intake, their blood pressure suddenly increased.
Cocoa is a staple food in the Kuna Indians’ daily diet. Scientists realized that cocoa is responsible for their perfect blood pressure and excellent heart health.
For Blood Pressure
One study showed that taking 4.2 grams (one teaspoon) of cocoa daily lowers both your systolic (the upper number) and diastolic (the lower number) blood pressure when compared to people who use less cocoa or no cocoa.
Compounds found in cocoa called flavanols are what help reduce your blood pressure. They appear to widen your blood vessels, thus putting less strain on your circulatory system.
For The Heart
Cocoa is very rich in flavonoids (substances that are beneficial to health due to their antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic properties).
Numerous studies have proven that daily intake of cocoa has a significant beneficial effect on your heart which includes,
- lowering blood pressure
- improving vascular function
- reduction of platelet and adhesion
- reducing inflammation
- improving glucose and lipid (fat) metabolism
These health effects have been shown in healthy people and people that are suffering from diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
Note: When purchasing cocoa, try to buy raw cacao. Raw cacao is cold-pressed and unroasted. It retains more beneficial enzymes, the fat is removed, and the overall nutrition value is more plentiful.
Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid, meaning the body can produce it.
However, to get the right amount, a supplemental powdered form would be a good choice. It has no known side effects and has been proven to be very safe to take even for the very ill.
L-citrulline is a precursor of L-arginine. L-arginine is excellent in improving heart-related problems such as,
- heart failure
- diabetic vascular disease
- ischemia-reperfusion injury
However, L-arginine has a very low bioavailability. Most of it gets destroyed in the intestines or liver.
On the contrary, L-citrulline is exceptionally bioavailable and passes unharmed through the intestines and liver, allowing it to convert into L-arginine and protect your heart.
Citrulline is a more effective precursor of arginine than arginine itself.
The three substances mentioned here are harmless and natural. This drink can protect your heart by either helping to prevent or treat heart problems and blood pressure.
These ingredients are not expensive and can easily be purchased on Amazon.
Please remember, you should maintain an overall healthy lifestyle and add this drink to your diet.
Studies confirm that all three of these ingredients are incredibly beneficial for the heart. The fantastic thing is that the drink is easy to make. PROTECT YOUR HEART NOW.
