It seems that the weight loss and supplements are working for you. Good diet and exercise also help. I would say you're on track for good blood pressure readings. Don't get too anxious, test at the same time of day, and not every day. JanR

You are doing an excellent job controlling your BP, even if it goes up to 150 from time to time, it really should not be a concern. Keep in mind that God created several natural remedies that control the different areas of our physical and mental health. If your concerns are weight and high blood pressure, research the remedy that works for that specific condition but don't attempt to use them at the same time but rotate them every three months. Also remember that stress raises blood pressure more so than anything else.


Anything? 1g carbohydrate holds about 3g water in the body, adding to blood volume. High-glycaemic carbs (and anomalies such as yoghurt or baked beans) spike IGF-1 levels causing growth of the endothelial linings of arteries, effectively narrowing them.

Narrowed arteries, increased blood volume including excess hormone levels leads to high blood pressure.

The remedy is to only eat sufficient quality carbs to replenish the glycogen we use.


Hi RRBs, I think you are doing a great job, I wish I had had the same results for similar efforts. At 51 you could expect anything under 140/80 to be non life threatening. At least that's what the American docs tell us.

I wanted to tell you that beetroots are very effective for BP reduction especially if eaten with celery. I have this with my lunch everyday, not that I have had as much success as you have had but there is certainly a significant temporary effect.
