Douse the Fires of Inflammation that Make Your Blood Pressure Rise
In China, doctors believe that one of the major causes of high blood pressure is inflammation overrun. And that makes perfect sense.
As you may know, when inflammation flares up, trouble follows. Trouble that weakens and damages your blood vessels… and makes your blood pressure skyrocket.
When this happens, Traditional Chinese Doctors turn to a simple “cooling” herb that’s also chock-full of natural anti-inflammatory compounds. It’s called Chinese skullcap.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Western doctor who knows much about it. But Traditional Chinese Medicine has used this herb to treat hundreds of conditions - including high blood pressure.
It turns out that Chinese skullcap is a rich source of phytonutrients called baicalein and wogonin. These compounds hunt down dangerous inflammation and free radical damage in the lining of your blood vessels and arteries.
Skullcap also stimulates your arteries to relax and open… which improves blood flow. The result? Clearer arteries, better circulation and healthier blood pressure numbers!
Now, another key to healthy blood pressure is eliminating a rogue enzyme that wreaks havoc with your arteries and blood vessels. It’s called Angiotensin II.
Left unchecked, Angiotensin II constricts your arteries, forcing blood to squeeze through. This nasty enzyme can elevate your sodium levels – causing you to retain water – and make your blood pressure rise. But Traditional Chinese doctors have found a way to lower Angiotensin II levels.
