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!
