How to mix beets and celery to lower blood pressure

High blood pressure medication has varying negative side effects. Living with high blood pressure is bad enough, but now there can be digestive issues, respiratory problems, fatigue and other uncomfortable issues that need to be addressed. (1)
Spill out those pharmaceutical pills and heal yourself naturally, with no side effects except improved overall health. You will be astounded and ecstatic about the change. It all begins with one vegetable.

Celery: The Healer of High Blood Pressure

Celery has three attributes that promote healthy blood pressure:
  1. 3-n-butylphthalide (NBP)
  2. Apigenin (plant-based antioxidant)
  3. Omega-6 fatty acids
  4. Potassium
  5. Phthalides
Dr. Michael Murray writes in his book How to Prevent and Treat Diabetes with Natural Medicine, NBP acts like a calcium channel blocker to dilate arteries and relax blood vessels. (2)
Apigenin protects the body against cell damage, prevents blood clots, and decreases inflammation in the arteries. (3)
Omega-6 fatty acids, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, can help protect the body against hypertension, or high blood pressure. (4)
Potassium is an essential factor to trigger your heartbeat and regulate blood pressure levels. With its minimal yet significant amount of potassium, celery can stabilize fluid levels in the body. (5)  
Phthalides act as a diuretic to rid the body of its excess salt levels that can dangerously heighten blood pressure. (6)
