You can live a healthier life if you treat and manage your high blood pressure. There are many ways to do so: losing weight, making some lifestyle modifications, quit smoking, exercise, and also – taking natural remedies.

In this article, we will review 7 natural remedies that science suggests might help in treating hypertension

1. Raw Almonds

In the diet, almonds are included in the “nuts, seeds and legumes” group. The diet recommends eating four to five servings of this food group per week. With regard to almonds, one serving of almonds is just one-third cup.

The healthy monounsaturated fat in almonds contributes to lower blood cholesterol levels and reduced arterial inflammation, which ultimately helps lower the pressure inside the arteries.

Here’s a great pasta recipe with Almonds


2. Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne Pepper might lower blood pressure fastCayenne Pepper is probably the fastest way to lower high blood pressure. Cayenne pepper is a powerful vasodilator, which means it helps expand blood vessels and improve blood flow.

This effect naturally lowers blood pressure levels by increasing the rate at which blood flows throughout the circulatory system, which in turn takes some of the pressure off arterial walls.

Either mix one teaspoon of cayenne pepper with half a cup of lukewarm water or mix two tablespoons of raw organic honey with two teaspoons of cayenne pepper; boil them with eight ounces of water and drink when it is warm.

Here are two recipes for the spicy lovers:

  • Amazing Cauliflower Gold Recipe
  • Grilled Peanut Chicken Recipe

A side note: Be careful how many Scoville Units your cayenne pepper is. I bought mine, 90,000 Scoville Units, and OMG. I thought I was going to breathe fire.


3. Coconut Water

Coconut water finds itself high on the list of home remedies for high blood pressure. One of the causes of high blood pressure is an imbalance of electrolytes in the blood.

Since coconut water contain an adequate supply of minerals and salts, it can help counter this imbalance. Modern researchers say the potassium content in coconut water plays a huge role in lowering blood pressure.

Both potassium chloride (seen in supplements) and potassium citrate (seen in foods) can help with your blood pressure levels. Potassium helps balance out the level of sodium in your blood and keeps your body functioning properly.

Coconut water usually appears in the market as coconut milk. They are commonly used in Asian recipes as their vegetable version of milk cream. Here are a few great recipes we collected:


4. Raw Cacao

Thus lowering your blood pressure. Cacao contains over 700 compounds and the complex antioxidants found in it known as polyphenols help reduce ‘bad cholesterol’ and prevent hardening of the arteries.

5. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

A study published in the Journal of Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry, looked at the effect that vinegar has on blood pressure if it is introduced to your diet.

The results of the research showed that consumption of acetic acid (which is found in apple cider vinegar) caused a significant reduction in hypertension (high blood pressure). The research found that the acetic acid reduced blood pressure by lowering the renin activity. Renin is an enzyme which helps regulate blood pressure.

I mix 1-2 tablespoons in a glass of warm water in the morning. I have found one I like: Braggs.

6. Raw Garlic

Natural Alternatives to blood pressure medicationsAs the body increases production of an enzyme called angiotensin I-converting enzyme, or “ACE”, blood pressure increases. Pharmaceutical drugs called ACE inhibitors work by blocking the formation of this enzyme, but they have multiple side effects.

Garlic contains gamma-glutamylcysteine, a natural ACE inhibitor. Research suggest that, this chemical, in combination with the high allicin content, gives garlic its ability to dilate arteries, thereby lowering blood pressure.

I usually take one clove of garlic and remove the skin, chew well and swallow. Yes nobody wants to be around me after. You can also buy in pill form.

7. Turmeric

natural alternatives to blood pressure medications - turmericResearch shows that turmeric can reduce hypertension by regulating the activity of angiotensin receptors and thereby preventing the blood vessels from constricting. Not only curcumin, a turmeric oil fraction, and turmerone also demonstrate similar activity.

Turmeric by itself is not easily absorbed into the body. When speaking with a cardiac-surgeon I know, he told me that I needed to put a pinch of fresh black pepper on my tongue. This allows the body to absorb the turmeric increasing the efficacy.

A WARNING: Taking turmeric over an extended period of time can cause bleeding. My clotting factors were off when I had been on it long term postponing my surgery by 2 weeks.

When starting anything new please consult your primary care physician. Always check to see if any of there natural remedies interfere with your current medication. You can also speak with your local pharmacist.

    1. The WebMD website warns that it is possible that long-term use of large amounts of cayenne can lead to serious side effect of kidney or liver failure. It is best to add cayenne to your diet moderately and have short periods of non-use. If you have previous gastrointestinal problems, it is advised you consult a professional herbalist or health professional before use. This is why I advise clients to speak with their healthcare provider when trying some natural remedies.
