Lower Blood Pressure Using This Common Vitamin

Taking 500mg (five times the recommended daily dose) of Vitamin C daily lowers high blood pressure 5 points according to a new study by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The study is pretty comprehensive since the researchers analyzed data from 29 previously published studies.

Since we’re dealing with so many studies however, we can’t say for sure if it’s more beneficial to get the vitamin from food or if supplements are as effective. We do, however, always recommend getting as much nutrition as possible from diet versus supplements.

Vitamin C can be found in high doses in many fruits and vegetables including: Black Currants, Breadfruit, Grapefruit, Guava, Kiwi, Lychee, Mango, Mulberries, Orange, Papaya, Passionfruit, Pineapple, Strawberries, Amaranth Leaves, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Green Pepper, Kale, Swiss Chard

    Dear Christian, I totally agree with you on eating the right food , fruit veg, etc and I believe the more colourful and bright or dark the colour the better for you in more ways than one. In fact I know it also helps to keep cancer at bay. I do believe in natural health and only go to my doctor if essential Which isn`t often in fact I get notes saying please book an appointment for a check up. My blood pressure goes up and down like a yo yo which I think is normal for my personality, but on the doctors advice i have been taking blood pressure tablet for some years, after being almost bullied by them i took fluid retention tablets and almost passed out the next morning when i got out of bed , my blood pressure had dropped too low so i was told don`t take any more but recently I ran out of my usual Blood pressure tablet and didn`t take aything for 4 days, I felt so fit and full of life but when I started back on them I was lethargic fed up depressed plus many other things which were obviously side effects but didn`t realise until I looked on the instructions that comes with them In fact I don`t do that often because it is too easy to tell yourdelf that might cause this or that and in the morning when i was still lying in bed I went very giddy I tried to stand up but couldn`t and I was alone here so it was scary however I rang the surgery and my doctor rang me back and said don`t take any for two weeks, and then come and see me.I haven`t taken anything for almost a week and I feel fine and full of life, so what does that say?
    When I have some money i will get your exercise programe.
    Thans for all you do for us on here.
    Best Regards

    Robert S Redfern canyoumake a smoothie using beetroots?

  7. Some people cannot digest orange juice, so if they take 500 that way, it won't do them any good.

  8. Hi. Just thought to say..other things may help..naturally..celery ..and dark chocolate also help may help!:). I go organic, so I would suggest that too. Anyway, wish you well.

  9. steve reiss says:

    You can get beet root powder in a health food store, so you can add that to your smoothie. Beet root is supposed to be one of those vegetables that helps to lower your blood pressure.

    dear sir I little disagree with you, actually in the diseases like asthma, blood pressure, arthritis, sugar, cancer etc. aelopathy is best pathy to control (not cure) the above diseases, other methods like naturopathy etc. are not believable.

  11. Syed Hasan says:

    Useful information, no doubt.

  12. Always willing to try anythingf that keeps BP down, I also have the White Coat Syndrome. At home really good.I am on one tablet every day.Thanks so much for your most helpoful information.

  13. When will they ever make up their mind on what are really good or bad for our health? Reports such as these tends to be more confusing than helpful considering other various reports that does not support one another.

  14. catherine says:

  15. Alexa Pope says:

    I am seeing the doc tomorrow, I will ask him if I can stop taking the tablets I have been taking for YEARS,,,,,, I will keep y informed,! AP.

  16. Alexa Pope says:

    Robert S Redfern Hello Mr Redfern, What gives you the right to ASSUME I eat carbs? I have NOT eaten potatoes for Yearss because they made me sleepy the next day. Hasn't your mother taught you that it is best to ask questions before you open your big fat mouth. A.P

  17. larry says:

    For over three years now I have been 1000 mg of vitmain C as food supplement, in addition to most of the fruits listed herein, icluding mangoes, pinapples, pawpaw, grapes, oranges, and apples; and I take my medication religiously; yet there have been instances when my BP ‘misbehaves’ on the high side. I will like lt add that I drink at least 4 cups of green tea daily.
    What next will I do to control my BP effectively, as well as reduce the level of bad cholesterol, while increasing the level of HD one?

  18. Jonathan Cox says:

    losing 10 pounds will lower your blood pressure….avoid starchy carbs and eat like a caveman and youll be right!

    Hi Chris,

    thanks for the wonderful job your’re doing for good health. this BP stuff is quite a delicate thing to manage. eat this, don’t eat that. take this drug don’t take the other and so on.

    my BP is best managed with drugs that have diuretics eg THIAPRIL that have combination of 5mg ramipril and 12.5mg hydrochlorothiazide. but this causes me to have low libido. if i take the other drugs that dont have hydrochlorothiazide libido improves but the bp keep fluctuating and not always in best mood. i’m therefore left with the option of having a good bp and low libido and not too good bp with better libido. so imagine the confusion.

    the best would have been your natural ways to have good bp and good life quality but the cost implications for now. for now are there really bp drugs that work without affecting libido?. the fruits are good and i equally take them to lower the dossages of drugs for bp.

    Vitamin C will do a lot more than just lower BP, but 5 points is not highly significant. For cholesterol there is a doctor that says 1/3 cup beets, 1/2 red apple and the equivalent of one carrot per day will lower cholesterol by 50 percent. I have not tried this yet, and there is much more going on with cardiovascular disease than cholesterol. Arterial scurvy could well be the main cause, and that is why you would take high dose vitamin C. There is considerable info out there about arterial scurvy, if you look into it.

    I so like your articles, Christian. I think I am going to buy the juicer type that juices the entire vegetable & fruit. I watched an ad on it late one nite. Your articles reinforce the decisions I have made, and am still making, or that I have put off for a while. I have so many chronic health problems I do not know what to do anymore. The only thing I could do wrong, is to do nothing!

    I did not know you were from Iceland. How interesting. I do not like cold weather, but, in Illinois while my husband was an instructor at Great Lakes Naval Academy, I had very little arthritis. I think that was the warning that my arthritis was something different than regular arthritis. You are my favorite writer, and Blue Heron News is my favorite health newsletter. I have researched many natural and unacceptable treatments, unacceptable by the medical model, and doctors, that is. Maybe that is why I like this news better than many others. Thanks for starting this and sharing it. Love the reader comments too. I find many interesting and beneficial items which I go and get at local health food stores, or order, when they are easier to use than expensive combinations of the same things. Thanks again, and thanks to all your nice and interesting readers. Taylor
