High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the plagues of our modern way of life. This condition, if left untreated, can be potentially life-threatening and needs to be treated on time.
Besides the drugs that lower blood pressure prescribed by your cardiologist, you can beat hypertension with help from folk medicine.
A top contender in the fight against high blood pressure is garlic, which besides having anthelmintic, antimicrobial and biliary enrichment properties, also has an excellent effect on blood pressure.
Not only does garlic lower blood pressure easily, it does so for extended periods of time when taken on a daily basis. There's no special recipe - all you need to do is eat 2-3 cloves of garlic 1-2 times per day to feel its positive effects.
However, if you'd like to magnify the healing powers of garlic, experts recommend mashing it, mixing it with honey and apple cider vinegar and drinking 1-2 tbsp of it mixed with a little water every morning.
To make this healthy elixir, you need 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup honey and 8 large garlic cloves. Mix the ingredients well, store the resulting mixture in the fridge.
High blood pressure is regulated with the help of garlic and its well-expressed diuretic action. Further, garlic prevents the development of atherosclerosis in the arteries by lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and fibrinogen in the blood.
