So many times when writing these articles I am well aware that I rarely have the chance to share with your something decedent that you can eat. So with the Thanksgiving just 2 days away here is a treat to share, dark chocolate. Research that was done in Jordan shows a definite link between chocolate consumption and lower blood pressure. Now of course we are not talking about eating a Snickers Bar but a healthier dark chocolate which has to be 70% cacao or greater and have less than 10 grams of sugar per serving.
The research investigation included 14,300 men and women over the age of 18 which 75%of the group between 18-39. All participants had normal blood pressure and no heart disease. They found that the more dark chocolate a person consumed, the lower their systolic blood pressure (that’s the top number). Specifically, the average systolic pressure for mild intake was 125.64 compared to 119.29 for high intake. (Less than 120 is considered normal, while 120–139 is considered pre-hypertension.)
Diastolic numbers (the lower one) showed a similar effect. Mild consumers had an average of 79.92, while high consumers boasted 76.74. (Less than 80 is considered normal, while 80–89 is considered pre-hypertension.) Conclusion eating dark chocolate is healthy and beneficial in fighting high blood pressure.
RESPeRATE is the only non-drug, FDA-Cleared device for lowering blood pressure naturally. It is clinically proven, doctor recommended and has no side effects.
RESPeRATE lowers blood pressure by relaxing constricted blood vessels which cause high blood pressure. RESPeRATE does so by harnessing the therapeutic power of slow paced breathing with prolonged exhalation in a way that is virtually impossible to achieve on your own. All you have to do is breathe along with RESPeRATE’s guiding tones.
