Orlando, FL — April 12, 2016 - Hypertension, otherwise known as high blood pressure, is believed to increase the risk of stroke of heart attack. There are actually medications and natural methods that can be used to reduce this risk, and one is to use antioxidants.

Research reveals resveratrol may potentially lower the risk of high blood pressure. Controlling high blood pressure requires sufferers to engage in regular exercise, lose excess weight, have a diet low in salt, cholesterol, and fat, as well as quit smoking.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute reveal that there are contributing factors in the increase of blood pressure. It can be aging, underlying condition, or the use of certain medications. Other risk factors are living a sedentary lifestyle, having an unhealthy diet, being overweight, and consuming too much alcohol.

Hypertension causes the heart muscle to work harder than the usual. Over time, it can significantly damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, and other body parts. When blood pressure reaches 120/80mm Hg or even higher, medications may be used to lower it.

According to the CDC, about 70 million individuals or 1 out of 3 people in the United States suffer from high blood pressure. Half of the population of these sufferers is able to manage their condition. The use of medications, certain lifestyle modifications, and the use of essential nutrients are believed to help sufferers manage hypertension.

It is believed that an antioxidant called resveratrol can potentially help reduce the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.

In a study featured in the February 3, 2012 issue of the “Cell” journal, it was found that resveratrol may have the ability to reduce LDL cholesterol levels, prevent blood vessel damage, hinder blood clotting, and reduce inflammation.

Blood clots, damaged blood vessels, and high cholesterol levels can increase blood pressure as well as block the arteries. Controlling all of these factors can significantly lower blood pressure.

The Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University reveals that a maximum of two alcoholic drinks for men and one for women a day may potentially reduce coronary artery disease risk. However, it has not been established yet if it is the flavonoids, alcohol, or resveratrol that caused the reduction.

Resveratrol can be obtained from food sources such as peanuts, grape juice, red grapes, bilberries, and cranberries. It can also be obtained through supplementation.

When incorporated in one’s diet, resveratrol can potentially offer a range of health benefits. It is believed to regulate systolic blood pressure, and therefore providing support in blood pressure health (http://www.amazon.com/Resveratrol-Supplement-Strength-Extract-capsules/dp/B019C0UU5S).
