UPDATE October 2021: [WATCH] Japanese researcher shows secret that naturally lowers blood pressure overnight.Heart disease is the number one killer of women. If you are a woman, and even if you’re not, this is something you need to read.
The food you eat and use to fuel your body will play a critical role in determining if you will have high, irregular or low blood pressure. Thankfully because you can control which foods you are eating, you can also control your blood pressure.
For instance, eating less meat proteins and eating more fruits, vegetables and legumes can assist in lowering your blood pressure.
High blood pressure occurs when fats, cholesterol, and nutrients in the food you eat start to accumulate along your artery walls. This narrowing of your arteries restricts the flow of your blood, increases your blood pressure and exposes you to be you more susceptible to heart attacks, strokes and disease.
A Japanese study has shown that if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or high triglycerides, the citric acid and other vitamin benefits found in grapefruits helps reduce the build up along your arteries and normalize your blood pressure.
Now, there’s two kinds of grapefruit – red and yellow.
Which is better?Well, in the same Japanese study people who had a history of high cholesterol had more promising reactions to the red grapefruit. Most participants in the study noticed after making grapefruit a staple in their diet, their blood pressure dropped significantly and the doctors no longer worried.
In fact, grapefruit has been proven to have a more adverse and direct effect on lowering blood pressure than most statin drugs.
The secret in the red grapefruits are extra high levels of anti-oxidants. It’s these nutrients that are able to reduce your triglycerides and direct an adequate flow of blood.
Researchers suggest adding 1 to 2 grapefruit to your daily diet would yield the most promising results. It makes a great morning ‘pick me up’ for breakfast — in my opinion. You could also add one into an afternoon snack.
Eating grapefruit has many other health benefits as well. Some of these include controlling your insulin level. In fact, some studies have shown that people who eat grapefruits have lower insulin and glucose levels in their blood on a daily basis.
Grapefruit (along with other citric fruits) are also shown to stimulate weight loss. It is believed by researchers that grapefruit enzymes help control insulin increases that happen after you eat, keeping spikes low. These enzymes help you better digest your food and this results in less nutrients being stored as fat.
Grapefruits are high in fiber, vitamin C, Vitamin A, and antioxidants – carotenoids, limonoid glucosides, flavanones (the same ones that help decrease artery wall build up).
You can find both red and yellow grapefruits from November to May here in the US. Most WholeFoods, Walmart, Publix, etc. locations will have them.
My personal favorite is finding them at farmers markets – but sometimes difficult to do in the US!

CAUTION: If you are on any drugs, do not eat grapefruits in combination with taking drugs. Grapefruit enhances the effect of drugs and can cause symptoms of overdose.
