Having done some research, and having been advised by Rachel, I've thrown caution to the winds and bought myself about two weeks worth of magical Blood Pressure lowering liquid.
I am assured that by drinking about 250 mls per day, my BP should reduce to a level that equates to taking that ghastly Amlodipine. I am also assured that my legs and feet will no longer swell.
I eat Beetroot on a regular basis, but I had never thought about drinking Beetroot Juice. I can't say that eating or drinking it give the same pleasure; they don't. The Juice loses something during the process, but it's still not unpleasant.
I'm also hoping that this elixir will give me the looks of Adonis, the stamina of Usain Bolt, and the sexual allure of Errol Flynn. One can but dream.
It is 90% Beetroot Juice, and 10% Apple Juice.
I may try someReplyDelete
It is not nearly as nice as eating actual Beetroot, but for the sake of my BP I shall persevere.Delete
Loving the amiodipine story, as I am on half your dosage but do not experience the side effects. But.....drinking beetroot juice, no thank you. Love my beetroot chunks in a salad dressing.ReplyDelete
Yes, it's not as nice as the real thing. I may try making my own to see if it's better.Delete
Good luck with the juice. Garlic is supposed to help lower blood pressure too. I think that comes in capsule form otherwise you'd be a social outcast.ReplyDelete
I wonder if any of these work . It will be interesting to hear your results.
There are miracle claims for almost everything you can think of, some I believe, others I don't; Beetroot comes into the first category.Delete
It should give you a nice ruddy complexion. I think I once read that it can improve your blood pressure because it can increase stamina and thus let you exercise more. Good luck.ReplyDelete
Yes, I've read that too.Delete
Dreaming is good.ReplyDelete
I hope you're not doubting. I'm looking in the mirror regularly; nothing yet!Delete
You have to let your eyes go out of focus, then the wrinkles don't show so much.Delete
My other secret weapon is the radish.ReplyDelete
Radish tastes as if it ought to have healing qualities.Delete
Brimming over with them.Delete
Beetroot and apple? Hmm... not sure if I want to try that myself.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the liquid medication. I hope it does the trick.
It's not the tastiest combination, but I shall persevere.Delete
Beets have a lot of sugar. Watch out for diabetes.ReplyDelete
I'm already Type 2.Delete
Aside from his looks, there was another large factor to the allure of Errol Flynn.ReplyDelete
Beetroot juice should fix that too!Delete
Mix some in a smoothie! Vary the combination..we like apple celery cucumber and fresh ginger..a slug of beetroot juice would definitely liven the colour!!ReplyDelete
I thought I'd like the taste more than I do. I need to find something to mix with it.Delete
I just tried Balsamic Vinegar... not bad.Delete
My husband's doc wanted to put him on blood pressure pills. Instead, I started juicing beetroot for him (quite a dramatic colour when put through the juicer). His bp went down.ReplyDelete
When I've finished my 3 litres, I shall start to make my own.Delete
Don't be alarmed if your wee turns pink.ReplyDelete
I actually am quite interested to see how this experiment works out.ReplyDelete
It'll be a while before I know. My problem is that my BP is about average anyway.Delete
Then I really don't understand the prescription.Delete
I would also drink it except for the looks, stamina and sexual allure - don't think the world could handle that.ReplyDelete
Someone recently said "You look gorgeous"; then I realised she was talking to the dog.Delete
That would happen to me, too!Delete
To play a little with one of my favorite Winston Churchill quotes, eating all this stuff and drinking vinegar with it might help one to live to be 100; it might seem like 200 though! CheersReplyDelete
Yes, and I expect nature will take its course regardless.Delete
I adore beetroot so maybe I will live to be 100 - not sure I want to though.ReplyDelete
It's a matter of keep me going healthily, until it's time to say goodbyeDelete
Nutrition plays a big factor in health. Natural cures are worth trying. Consulting with a good Nutritionist might provide additional valuable information.ReplyDelete
I have a wonderful book (in France) called 'Eating your way to health', which goes through almost every food known to mankind, and notes their benefits and detriments. Every home should have a copy.Delete
