Everyday teas that can help you lower your blood pressure

In this section, it will follow simpler teas that we have in everyday life, and they can help lower your blood pressure.

In addition to the above teas, in lowering blood pressure can help also following teas:

1. Hibiscus Tea

According to a study done recently, one of which was published in the Journal of Nutrition, the delicious hibiscus tea, thanks to the antioxidants and anthocyanins it contains, lowers blood pressure.

It protects blood vessels from damage and narrows them. For better effect, drink 3 cups a day for a few sips, not all at once.

If you are taking medication prescribed by a doctor, consult him before you start taking it because it may affect the medication.

2. Green Tea

Green tea is known to be used for weight loss, but it also helps to clear the arteries and improve blood flow. This leads to lower blood pressure. And it is rich in antioxidants that improve health and heart function.

Drink 1-2 cups a day. Be careful not to overdo it because too much can have side effects.

People with normal or slightly lower blood pressure than normal tea may experience dizziness and nausea. This means that green tea lowers your blood pressure too much and try to avoid it.

And in this case, consult a doctor if you are taking blood pressure medication.

3. Oolong Tea

It has similar properties to green tea. The antioxidants it contains can contribute to heart health and maintain blood pressure levels.

4. Basil Tea

The sweet and holy basil I talked about in previous blogs has a calming effect and better dream. It is the result of low blood pressure caused by this herb.

The eugenol contained in basil prevents blood vessels from narrowing by blocking certain substances and thus lowers blood pressure.

As with most herbs, more scientific studies are needed to prove their true effects.

5. Ginger Tea

Among other benefits, this tea helps lower high blood pressure. Animal studies have shown that ginger relaxes the muscles around blood vessels and improves blood circulation.

There are other studies done on people that show similar results but they are limited and non-specific studies.

6. Cat’s Claw Tea

Cat’s claw herb acts on the calcium channels in the cells. This lowers blood pressure, the study shows.

This type of tea is also used in Chinese medicine for hypertension.

7. Lavender Tea

Lavender is generally known for its wonderful scents and soothing effect. It is popular for making essential oils.

These french lavender essential oils in a study of animals reduced blood pressure and heart rate.

Lavender tea may not have as strong an effect as concentrated essential oil, but drinking it for a while can help.

8. Hawthorn Tea

The aforementioned hawthorn, as I said before, is used in folk medicine to improve heart health, lower cholesterol, and revocation the arteries.

In addition to being used in tea mixes to lower blood pressure, this tea can be used alone and again to have an effect.

Final Words

All of these teas can help lower your blood pressure and improve your heart health.

The mixes from teas I mentioned at the beginning may be more complicated but have a better effect due to the beneficial properties of most herbs used in them unlike single teas.

Do not leave or replace medical therapy with these teas. They can affect prescription medications for high blood pressure, so consult your doctor before you start taking them each time. Do not leave or replace medical therapy with these teas.
