Beet Celery Ginger Apple Juice To Lower Blood Pressure

 

Beet juice and celery juice have been used for decades to lower hypertension the natural way. I myself am living proof of this.   Last year I was diagnosed with hypertension and was put on lisinopril. I dislike taking drugs and try to avoid them as much as I can, so I persuaded the doctor to let me try natural ways & diet therapy  to lower my blood pressure. I was given a month and during that time apart from cutting salty foods out of my diet I drank fresh celery juice almost every day and my blood pressure was fine.  Celery apple ginger juice is now a regular part of my routine. I sometimes add beets to it, but I avoid it for the most part since I am also borderline diabetic (strong family history). I am not suggesting that you throw away your pills … oh no!! But just try this therapy and then over time you may find the need to take pills for hypertension may become less or  like in my case be under good control the natural way. Since this juice combo is all natural, no harm really in drinking it  for general health.  The real hypertension lowering ingredients are beets & celery, but the apple adds sweetness to it and makes it refreshing and tasty.  Feel free to omit the apple or the beets  if you have diabetes. Just celery juice will work too! Even if you don’t have hypertension this juice is loaded with antioxidants and raw enzymes that will rejuvenate and recharge your system. It ‘s a blood purifying juice that cleanses the system. 

 

 

Science behind why this may work!

Beets are the ultimate blood purifier. They increases RBC (increases production of glutathione [detoxifying agent]) and lowers Blood pressure. They are more potent eaten raw or in fresh juice form. Celery contains high levels of potassium and active compounds called phthalides, which have been found to lower blood pressure and promote a healthy circulatory system.  Celery should be eaten raw or in juice form to get the maximum benefits. Celery has the highest level of pesticide according to the EPA list, so buying organic celery when you juice is better. If you can’t buy organic, use a good veggie wash which will remove most of the pesticide. You can try this homemade recipe for a fruit/ veggie wash! Put these two together and you have a potent juice that lowers blood pressure!

  2. My husband used to juice a lot, but he hasn’t done it in awhile. He takes lisinopril for his high blood pressure. I am going to show him this recipe and see what he thinks. Thanks!

    • That’s the same drug I was prescribed. Fortunately mine came under control with the juice and some lifestyle changes and I don’t take it anymore. Hope you can continue the juicing. Always good for so many things !! Thanks for reading !

  3. I’ve been intending to do more juicing. I’m definitely going to try this. I’ve also heard beet juice good for the brain…Do you peel the ginger before juicing?

    • Beets have high levels of Glutathione, a superior antioxidant which detoxifies …. prolly why it would be great for the brain. I just restarted juicing regularly & apart from losing wt, I feel very energetic and good. So I highly recommend it ! I just wash ginger well, but I don’t peel it ! Thanks for sharing the post :) ! Appreciate it !

      • Eating balance diet is great recipe for controlling physical and mental diseases. So try to eat healthy foods always. Raw veggies and fresh fruits are great for health.

  6. Sue, you never fail to entice your readers with your lovely, mouth-watering recipes. I come from a family that’s got high blood pressure as one of our problems, and we’re always popping maintenance meds to keep the elevated blood pressure at bay.Glad you used ginger instead of garlic, because I really hate it. Thank you!

  7. Celery lends a tangy, refreshing flavor to the drink, and I was really smitten with it because it’s got apple and ginger as some of its ingredients. These two cover the sweet and the slightly spicy flavor of the smoothie. I never thought beet is another essential ingredient that can make any fruit smoothie even more delicious and nutritious.

  8. At first looking this juice, I thought it’s guava juice, but it isn’t :D
    But, I like the combination of beet and ginger, it really good for health…

  9. I’m more of a mango smoothie junkie but I’ll definitely try your recipe Sue. Ginger lends a spicy nip to the drink and I think it will be a refreshing and delicious alternative to carbonated drinks and sugar-packed juice cartons.

  10. Ginger? Sounds nasty. But I will surely try your recipe if it definitely lowers blood pressure. Does the heavenly concoction have something to say about lowering bad cholesterol?

  11. This is a topic that’s near to my heart… Thank you! Exactly where are your contact details though?
