High blood pressure or hypertension is known as the “silent killer.” When our blood pressure is high, our blood moves forcefully through the arteries. This movement puts increased pressure on the delicate tissues in the arteries and damages the blood vessels, heart, brain, kidneys, and eyes.
For those looking for a potent natural remedy to lower blood pressure and unclog the arteries, we can try this recipe that combines the power of 3 amazing ingredients, such as lemon, garlic, and ginger.
Garlic contains allicin, an organic sulfur compound that gives garlic its pungent smell and makes it a healthy addition to our diet. It also has powerful antibiotic properties, antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-viral properties.
Every 100 grams of garlic will serve our body with close to 150 calories, 33 grams of carbs, 6.36 grams of protein. Garlic is also enriched with Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, folate, Vitamin C, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and zinc.
Ginger is most probably the best antioxidant in the world. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for our body and brain. It has the ability to fight pain, inflammation, lower blood sugar levels, improve heart disease risk factors, treat chronic indigestion, and many more.
Lemons are excellent sources of vitamin C and are among the world’s most popular citrus fruits. It also contains high amounts of fiber, plant compounds, essential oils, and minerals. Because of its very sour taste, these yellow fruits are often used as a garnish or as a key ingredient in lemonade.
Lemons also have many potential health benefits. Eating lemons may lower our risk of heart disease, cancer, and kidney stones.
