You already know the saying about apples, but did you know blueberries can help you have good health too? According to a slew of research performed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, postmenopausal women who had high blood pressure experienced 5% and 6% decrease in their systolic and diastolic blood pressure respectively. Plus, they also had almost 70% increase of nitric oxide in their blood, which means blood flow could easily improve.
To experience the same benefits, here’s one recipe that will surely lower your blood pressure. You’ll need:
- Fresh or frozen blueberries – half a cup
- Banana – one medium size
- Almond butter – one tablespoon
- Hemp milk – eight to 8 ½ ounces
Just like with other smoothies, combine everything in a blender to get that smooth texture. Drink the smoothie on an empty stomach to achieve results fast.
