You don’t have to,”Take your troubles to Madame Ruth you know that gypsy with the golden tooth.” So began the lyrics of, “Love Potion Number Nine.” Our last 2 articles discussed erectile dysfunction in men with high blood pressure, and also ED ironically being a side effect of your high blood pressure medication. However before you run out to your family physician and ask for a prescription for Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra here is a natural recipe you may want to try at home first.

 

It is known that beetroots are rich in nitrates, one of the main ingredients in erectile dysfunction medicications. Nitrates help open up your blood vessels allowing more blood to flow, as in the case of erectile dysfunction, increased blood flow into the 2 major capillaries in the penis. Decreasing the possibility of ED. Try these delicious recipes to enjoy beetroot and spice up your love life.

 

Raw: Wash, peel and slice a beetroot and add it to your salad. Remember to chew it properly before swallowing to aid digestion.

 

Boiled: If raw beetroot doesn’t appeal to your taste then boil them, chop into pieces, add a dash of salt and squeeze half a lemon into it. It will make for a healthy mid-afternoon snack while helping you up your blood count and boost nitrate levels.

 

Juice: The vegetable has a natural sweetness to it; you can have it without adding any preservatives or sugar. Take two to three medium sized beets and wash them thoroughly. Next, peel, dice and blend at high speed. Pour the entire juice in a glass and drink it without adding any preservatives.

Does Asparagus Lower Blood Pressure?

Well… some scientists say that Asparagus does lower blood pressure. Research shows that green asparagus acts as an ACE-inhibitor and can lower blood pressure.

 

Asparagus has the following benefits:

 

  • Lowers systolic blood pressure
  • Pro-Biotic
  • Contains Vitamins, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6
  • Contains Phosphorus which improves Energy
  • Diuretic, so it’s a great Kidney detoxifier
  • Protects against Kidney Stones
  • Great for Diabetes

 

 

 

Does Asparagus lower blood pressure?

Green asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) is known to be rich in functional components. In a study published in the US Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, naturally hypertensive rats were checked to see if green asparagus prevents hypertension by inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity.

 

Six-week-old males were fed a diet with 5 percent of asparagus for 10 weeks had significantly lower systolic blood pressure, urinary protein excretion/creatinine excretion, and ACE (Angiotensin-converting enzyme) activity in the kidneys compared with the group who did not receive the vegetable.

 

The test group also had significantly higher creatinine clearance — the rate at which blood plasma is cleared of creatinine and is an indicator of overall kidney health. The researchers say that their findings suggest “that asparagus has an overall effect of benefitting the kidneys and lowering blood pressure for cases of hypertension.”

 

In addition, by boiling water extract of asparagus, they found ACE inhibitory activity. After purifying and isolating the inhibitor, it was identified as 2-hydroxynicotianamine. ACE increases blood pressure by causing blood vessels to constrict. For this reason, drugs known as ACE-inhibitors are used in medications to dilate blood vessels and thus lower blood pressure.

 

The researchers concluded that the 2-hydroxynicotianamine in asparagus “may be one of the factors inhibiting ACE activity in the kidney, thus preventing hypertension and preserving renal function.”
