How’s Hypertension and Moringa Connected?

Standard

We are living in times when some health challenges are increasing in prevalence. However, knowledge about them is essential. If you don’t know, you do not know. But can I ask you: are you or anyone you know diagnosed with high blood pressure? Have you been looking for other ways to control it? Do you wish to know if taking Moringa can help? Read on to see how.

First of all, let us understand how high blood pressure develops within your body.

What is Hypertension?

As blood circulates in your body, usually flowing through the arteries, it exerts pressure on the artery walls. Throughout the day’s activities, the blood pressure rises and falls naturally. However when the blood pressure stays high for a long period, it can cause health challenges. High blood pressure may lead to coronary disease and stroke which is one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

How do you know if you are at risk?

Anybody can develop high blood pressure, even children. Several factors are considered as risk factors. Included in this are age, sex and race which may be beyond your control. You can lower your risk by eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding smoking and leading a physically active lifestyle by way of exercising. These are what I call the Dos and Don’ts of high blood pressure.

So, how do you know if you have developed Hypertension? Lest I forget, there is pregnancy induced hypertension.

What are the indications of High Blood Pressure?

Answer: It has got no signs and symptoms. But how do I know if I’ve got it or not? Always check with your Doctor to run a routine check up. And do not live in fear either. You will not develop hypertension easily if you stick close enough to the Dos plus don’ts above.

How is high blood pressure measured?

Your doctor measures your blood pressure by wrapping an inflatable cuff with a pressure gauge around your arm to squeeze the blood vessels. Then he or she listens to your pulse with a stethoscope while releasing air from the cuff. The gauge measures the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart beats (systolic) and when it rests (diastolic). You can measure yourself too, utilizing a digital blood pressure machine.

What Blood Pressure readings are healthy?

Averagely the healthy systolic/diastolic readings should be 120/80(read 120 over 80)
To determine whether your blood pressure is normal, your doctor examines your systolic and diastolic pressures, which the gauge measures in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg).

Normal ===> Systolic: Less than 120 mmHg
Diastolic: Less than 80 mmHg

At risk (prehypertension)===> Systolic: 120-139 mmHg
Diastolic: 80-89 mmHg

High^ ===> Systolic: 140 mmHg or higher
Diastolic: 90 mmHg or higher

How then is Moringa linked to High Blood pressure?

Moringa oleifera is a miracle plant with the capacity to maintain healthy blood pressure in humans when consumed appropriately.

But what makes moringa good for controlling high blood pressure?

WebMd has details about Moringa oleifera as it relates to high blood pressure. As outlined by a research article, Role of Natural Herbs in the Treatment of Hypertension, on Pubmed, “…In anesthetized rats, the crude extract of the leaves of M. oleifera caused a fall in systolic, diastolic, and mean BP in a dose-dependent manner. The antihypertensive effect was brief, returning to normal within two minutes…”

Moringa is a powerhouse of nutrients essential for a Healthy Blood Pressure. The key nutrients for healthy blood pressure include Potassium, Vitamin E, Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc. Moringa oleifera offers all these nutrients and in high amounts too.

The high potassium has a tendency to lower the sodium content. Potassium is thought to act by increasing sodium excretion in the urine, which helps blood vessels dilate, and changing the interactions of hormones that affect blood pressure.

Also, diet high in magnesium benefits those with hypertension, most likely by contributing to the relaxation of the smooth muscles of the blood vessels. Moringa also contains magnesium along with Zinc and Vitamin E which takes part in decreasing the blood pressure along with other nutrients

Similarly, Moringa oleifera contains Vitamin C helps support the body’s creation of nitric oxide, which is vital to normal functioning of blood vessels. The better your blood vessels work, the lower your risk of hypertension.

Calcium is required for smooth muscle relaxation and contraction; increased consumption can have a direct impact on blood vessels. It is best to get your calcium from your diet; research has found that in contrast to supplements, dietary calcium has twice the advantages for blood pressure. Consuming Moringa leaf, moringa seeds, moringa tea and moringa oil will provide all the above nutrients.

Do you now you see the connection? Therefore start taking Moringa oleifera now to prevent and manage High blood pressure.
