Refreshing Ways to Help Lower Your Blood Pressure

(Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD) Want a delicious and easy way to help your blood pressure? Research shows that if you take up drinking tea regularly, you can expect to see your top blood pressure number (systolic) dip by around 2.6 mmHg…
The researchers … concluded that if such improvements happened to everyone with high blood pressure the stats for related stroke risk would fall by 8%, for coronary artery disease mortality by 5% and for all-cause mortality by 4%. Green tea seems to have the most powerful effect on blood pressure; black tea is second; and it makes no difference if it’s caffeinated or decaffeinated.
Community: There are many practical things we can do to reduce blood pressure.
