Most people would agree that if they’ve been eating unhealthily, not exercising or under a lot of stress, their high blood pressure could be healed with lifestyle changes.
But what if your high blood pressure is genetic?
A new study revealed that one common fruit can actually alter the gene function in your heart to lower your blood pressure naturally.
Best of all: It’s very tasty and can be found in all supermarkets.
Researchers have long been aware of the benefits of grapes. Respected experts, such as Dr. Mark Hyman, have even called it the “mother of all antioxidants.” But now it seems that the fruit is even better than was initially thought.
A recent study published by the University of Michigan showed that grapes work to promote an increase in glutathione levels within the heart – an antioxidant that fights against heart disease that is specifically linked to high blood pressure.
The scientists fed rats an extremely high-fat diet. Then they supplemented them with a large amount of powdered grape.
The results were outstanding. The grape powder actually prevented the hearts of the rats from becoming enlarged and the arteries from hardening, an occurrence that usually happens with humans and animals on a high-fat diet.
Once the scientists were aware of the positive benefits of grapes, they went on to conduct a further study.
Now they fed the grape-rich diet to rats that suffered from hypertension. This new diet lasted for 18 weeks and the results were even more significant than those seen previously.
The grapes actually altered the very genes of the animals.
Furthermore, by altering the genes, the grapes boosted the antioxidant abilities of the cells in the heart, thus preventing it from stiffening and suffering under the ravages of high blood pressure.
This shows that even genetic high blood pressure can be healed naturally.
