Hypertension-and-Blood-SugarsEating a high grain and low fat diet is now believed to be not good for you because it a diet predisposing to hypertension.

2/3s of tested subjects who were insulin resistance also had high blood pressure. From these studies a  directly attributed link is made to  high sugar, high grain and low exercise lifestyles. When our insulin levels rise so can our blood pressure levels. This could be seen as to why the sign of heart palpitations can also be linked to blood pressure.

Advice is to reduce breads, pizzas, corn, rice , basically all grains and sugars form your diet.

Fructose can  exacerbate this problem as it creates uric acid waste products and this acid will increase blood pressure by inhibiting nitric oxide in the blood vessels. Nitric acid helps with blood vessel elasticity. 17 out of 17 studies have demonstrated that elevated uric acid levels can lead to hypertension.

So how can we support the body and prevent hypertension?

  • Ensure you are consuming enough Omega 3s. As a general rule we eat too much Omega 6 and not enough 3s. Eating omega 3 will help to re-sensitize your insulin receptors which is great if you suffer from insulin resistance. Omega 6 is found in processed vegetable oils, such as canola and sunflower oils. Omega 3s are found in flaxseed, walnut oil and fish.
  • Reduce caffeine as it is known than coffee and caffeine drinks will exacerbate hypertension.
  • Exercise. Physical activity is one of the most potent drugs we can have. Anaerobic or burst type exercises three times a week have been shown to be the most beneficial.
  • Heal the gut flora. When when have an unhealthy gut it leads a way to a wide range of chronic diseases. Eat probiotics, digestive enzymes and fermented foods.
  • Reduce stress in what every way and any way you can. Spend some time relaxing in the sun and soaking up the Vit D rays.
