3 Essential Minerals For High Blood Pressure
We have established in previous articles on our high blood pressure that sodium is a principle dietary cause of high blood pressure.
Reading this article, Foods that are bad for high blood pressure will help you to identify the foods that are high in sodium, talking of which, please do be alert to hidden salts like monosodium glutamate (MSG).
I have also written an article about Foods that are good for high blood pressure, having a quick read of that article will educate you in what foods you should be getting more of in order to bring down your hypertension.
The three essential trace minerals for helping to regulate your blood pressure are what I like to call the PCM minerals, simply put, Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium.
Being an Electronics system engineer by profession PCM is easy for me to remember (pulse code modulation).
An essential mineral that not only helps to regulate blood pressure but is also used in post-stroke treatments, kidney and heart disorders, increase muscle strength. It can help with anxiety and stress and is said to be good for the central nervous system. 
Best food sources: Mushrooms, Bananas, fish, yoghurt, dark leafy greens like spinach, coconuts (including coconut water), Avocados
With potassium being great a bringing down your blood pressure why not start the day with a lovely banana, great for the heart, delicious and lovely energy boost due to the B-complex vitamins contained within, not forgetting the ED busting enzyme bromelain.
And how about some coconut water at lunch time to help sooth your blood pressure?
Get fruity and get some booty is what I say!
Another essential mineral to chillax your Hypertension is calcium . Calcium is not only good for your bones, gums and teeth, good for helping the heart to maintain its rhythm. Also, helps with muscle function. Calcium is also one of the minerals that are required to boost testosterone levels naturally.
Best food sources: Dairy products like yoghurt, Some fruits, leafy greens, and seafood are great sources of calcium.
It should be fairly easy to get calcium in your diet. Take the simple and healthy steps and be aware of what foods contain the essential mineral and make a meal plan around it.
How does muesli with yoghurt for breakfast, or some cheese* as an evening snack sound to you?
*no wine! alcohol is a double kick in the nuts for men who are suffering from high blood pressure and erectile dysfunction as alcohol elevates blood pressure and lowers testosterone levels due to its xenoestrogenic properties.
A mineral that helps to regulate blood sugar levels as well as regulate blood pressure. Also helps in the fight against osteoporosis and heart disease. Helps to maintain healthy muscles, bones as well as maintaining healthy nerves. Magnesium, like calcium, is another one of the minerals required to augment testosterone levels naturally!
Great food sources: Dark chocolate, dried fruit, bananas, whole grains, yoghurt, beans, and nuts.
You see that? bananas making the list again, as did yoghurt. I thinking a yoghurt with a sliced banana could be a nice addition to a HBP soothing diet.
Talking of dark chocolate, check out the benefits of 100% organic cacao powder and its uses, like make your own homemade healthy Nutella, chocolate brownies, and granola bars all the while lowering your blood pressure.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this article I would talk about two herbs that can lower your high blood pressure and at the same time help you with your erectile dysfunction. Those two herbs are Ashwagandha and Cistanche Tubulosa
Ashwagandha can help lower your blood pressure if the cause of it is stress related, I refer to both physical and mental stress and strain. It is commonly referred to as Indian Viagra! helps erectile dysfunction by giving an energy boost and regulating hormonal imbalances
Cistanche Tubulosa can help lower your blood pressure due to containing all three of the PCM minerals, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. Cistanche Tubulosa, like Ashwagandha, it helps erectile dysfunction by helping with circulation and raising testosterone levels and redressing any hormonal imbalances.
Both herbs are best taken with cruciferous vegetables to block any excess amounts of that girlie hormone estrogen that we may have in our body. Taking the herbs this way will stop any testosterone gains from being bound to the estrogen, thus neutralising or diminishing any gains in free testosterone we may have.
Also, both these herbs are beneficial for our lady friends.
