My husband's BP was a bit higher than yours. He started with a prescription of 40 mg Benicar
. It only helped a little. He is slightly overweight
and 53 years old.
He is now walking briskly for 30-60 minutes a day (started with 15 slowly). He takes multi-vitamins
& minerals including nutritional yeast.
Garlic helps move fat from the blood and body. I began cooking with garlic and he also takes an odorless supplement. He takes CO Q10 and Taurine
, Salmon Oil, Soy products.
He used to love milk and would drink up to a gallon a day. I switch him to Silk Soy Milk which he really likes.
I try to get him to eat more fruits and vegetables.
He drastically reduced his caffeine intake.
It's been about 3 months and his blood pressure readings are consistently between 128/75 to 118/63. He stays on the Benicar and his doctor is really happy.
Something is working.
