High blood pressure (BP) is BIG business for the pharmaceutical industry…
But that’s only because many people turn to Big Pharma for medications.
What the mainstream won’t tell you is that this condition is easy to manage without popping a single pill.
In fact, researchers discovered a kitchen staple that can significantly lower blood pressure in just six weeks.
The best part? It might already be in your pantry…
Garlic’s effect on blood pressure
We’ve known for a while that garlic has many health benefits.
In fact, it was one of the first recommendations I ever gave to my patients when I first started out. And various studies have highlighted its natural, heart-protective effects.
Now, researchers have gone a step further and found that aged black garlic (ABG)—along with dietary guidance—helps lower diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) in men with moderately elevated cholesterol.
For the study, scientists tested the impact of ABG supplementation on cardiovascular measures.
After just six weeks, those taking ABG experienced a nearly six-point reduction in their diastolic blood pressure compared to the control group. (Total cholesterol levels showed a decreasing trend, too.)
That’s quite a significant drop, even if it doesn’t seem like a large number!
After all, the risk of ischemic heart disease and stroke doubles with every 10-point increase in DBP in people between the ages of 40- and 89-years.
Meaning that a reduction of five points would result in a:
- 40 percent lower risk of death from stroke
- 30 percent lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease or other vascular event
Not bad for a “few” points!
Better yet, this reduction is similar to what you can expect when you switch to a healthy, balanced diet.
So just imagine the possibilities of adding some ABG into the mix!
How much ABG do you need?
Now, let’s turn to some of the study details…
Participants received one tablet of 250 mg of ABG daily for six weeks. And ultimately, there wasn’t much of a difference until the six-week mark.
This is similar for many nutritional supplement interventions. It takes some time to see its effect. (You can’t take something for a week and throw it out the window because you haven’t seen immediate results. Good things come to those who wait.)
Another thing to note is that the ABG supplementation appeared to work better on men and those with higher DBP at the study’s outset.
Of course, ABG is aged for months to years. So, it’s very concentrated in organosulfur compounds—like allicin and other phytochemicals, including prebiotics.
Meaning you won’t necessarily see the same quick, beneficial results by adding fresh garlic to your cooking. Even so, garlic is certainly a delicious attribute to any meal—and boosts the health benefits of a balanced diet.
In the meantime, consider adding a high-quality ABG product from a brand you trust to your regimen, especially if you struggle with high blood pressure. And for additional ways to support your heart health, check out my Ultimate Heart-Protection Protocol.
