Turning Back the Clock on High Blood Pressure: How a Greens Powder can Transform Health in the Over-50s - A Pilot Study
By Jennifer Brown, Medical Researcher.
Hello everyone! Let's chat about high blood pressure, or hypertension, a common issue in the US that can lead to serious heart problems, strokes, and even affect your kidneys!
Treating high blood pressure isn't easy. Why? Because it's caused by a mix of complex things in our body that aren't easy to understand.
Now, here's something interesting. Alongside your regular treatment, we're looking at nutritional supplements. These aren't a one-stop solution or a replacement for your medications, but they're like an extra helping hand for your overall health. They might even help in preventing heart diseases, which is great news!
The best part? These supplements are usually safe, without any harmful side effects. So, we're keen on finding out if they can help lower blood pressure, especially for those of you who have a mild or moderate level of high blood pressure.
The Groundbreaking Pilot study
People who could participate in the study were either male or female students and faculty members of any age who had elevated blood pressure. However, those with diabetes, heart conditions, kidney problems, thyroid disorders, neurological diseases, pregnancy, or chronic illnesses were not eligible for the study.
