When it comes to making a juice for blood pressure you must first consider medical advice from your licenced GP. Around the world millions of people are unaware they have high blood pressure, yet it affects more than one in four adults on average.
If you have Hypertension, which means your blood pressure is higher than the recommended level, it is an extremely serious condition and can lead to strokes and heart attacks. Please seek medical advice if you feel you may be hypertensive.
Heart Beet Juice
Juicing, in my opinion, is always a great way to get more raw nutrients into the body that we may not consume on a daily basis. Beetroot and Spinach, for example, are rarely eating raw and even cooked they don’t make it to the plate very often so juicing them is a great way to get a good dose of the healing powers from the natural enzymes and phytonutrients contained in their fibres.
Here is my recommended natural juice for blood pressure that may be benefit some people with this condition.
- 2 beetroot (medium size)
- 3 apples
- 2 handful spinach
Slice the beetroot into thin slices and roughly chop the spinach.
Cold Press Juicing:
Begin by juicing the spinach first in order to get maximum amount of green juice from the leaves.
Next juice the thin slices of beetroot one at a time as to not overload the juicing press.
Finish juicing with the apples whole if they fit or cut if they are larger.
Beetroot – Studies and clinical trials have shown remarkable effects from incorporating beetroot juice into the diet and the correlation between this and reduced blood pressure. One study at the Peninsula Medical School concluded that drinking just 500ml of juice a day resulted in reduced blood pressure just one hour after drinking the juice.
Spinach – When it comes to helping the blood vessels relax, magnesium is a vital mineral to call upon, as this in turn helps to naturally lower blood pressure. Spinach is high in magnesium which works with calcium to support proper blood pressure and protect the heart.
Apple – Apples are high in a soluble fibre called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels.
