“Blood pressure!” Just thinking about it can cause your blood pressure to rise.
Especially if your spouse gives you a critical glance whenever you reach into the pantry for a snack or your doctor keeps warning you about it during every visit.
While nearly 50% of all American adults may have elevated blood pressure, many may not even know it.*
It’s true that blood pressure is often referred to as the “silent killer” because the symptoms can be so subtle that most people don’t even notice them.
So you can feel perfectly fine… until suddenly you don’t!
And while high blood pressure is a significant risk on its own, it is especially dangerous when combined with other cardiovascular risk factors such as high LDL cholesterol, high blood sugar or being overweight.
In fact, clinical studies show that the combination of significant blood sugar issues and high blood pressure increases a person’s risk of developing serious cardiovascular problems by 400%.*
Please keep reading because today I’m going to explain what blood pressure is and why consistently high readings are so dangerous and share with you an easy and natural way to take control of your blood pressure right now with the combination of an herbal nutrient and an essential, but often overlooked, vitamin.
What is Blood Pressure?
Maintaining normal blood pressure levels is one of the most critical aspects of good health.
Blood pressure is the amount of pressure it takes for your heart to push blood through your blood vessels and arteries. It the force with which blood pushes against artery walls, allowing your heart to move oxygen through your body, with your heart working like a pump and your blood vessels acting as pipes.
Normal, healthy blood vessels are flexible and can expand and contract as needed to maintain steady blood flow. But when blood vessels become stiff and are unable to dilate and relax, then the force needed to move blood through them increases.
Your blood pressure levels are determined by the amount of blood your heart pumps, and how your blood vessels react to or resist that force.
It takes into account two different pressure readings:*
- Systolic—measures how much pressure is exerted when your heart pumps blood through your blood vessels.*
- Diastolic—measures how much pressure exists when your heart is at rest, in between beats.
These two numbers are usually presented by a reading of systolic over diastolic pressure, for example “130 over 80” or “130/80 mmHg”.* This is considered normal, but not long ago the threshold for what was considered safe was much higher and put many adults at risk.
Why Has the Healthy Range for Blood Pressure Decreased?
In 2017, the definition of high blood pressure changed according to guidelines from major health organizations, including the American Cardiology Association (ACA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC).*
Previously, blood pressure was considered to be within healthy range if it fell below 140/90 mmHg. But now, guidelines indicate an ideal reading is 130/80mmHg or below.*
The ACA and ACC made the decision to lower the threshold to encourage early intervention including lifestyle modifications and medications, noting the detrimental effects of even marginally elevated blood pressure over time.*
According to Dr. Teresa Iribarren, an Assistant Professor at Florida International University College of Medicine and practicing Internal Medicine physician specializing in Integrative Medicine and Preventative Cardiovascular Medicine:
“These lower baseline readings help to identify patients who are at risk early on, when implementing lifestyle changes and dietary supplements can interrupt the domino of risk factors that can lead to serious and, at times, sudden problems.”
Elevated Blood Pressure Can Impact Many Aspects of Your Health
Many age-related issues can be caused or made worse by elevated blood pressure. Over time, your heart and blood vessels can become worn out due to an increase in pressure, which can lead to serious, and at times sudden, cardiovascular issues.*
Your heart is a muscle, and if it is forced to work harder than normal for prolonged periods, this over-exertion can cause it to grow in size—increasing the risk that your heart will malfunction.
But the consequences of high blood pressure don’t end with increased cardiovascular risk. Your body is so dependent on normal circulation that your everyday health can be affected in many ways including:
- Clear thinking—Research shows that elevated blood pressure reduces your ability to think clearly and contributes to long-term decline in cognitive function.*
- Eyesight—Elevated blood pressure can damage the delicate tissues of your eyes, including your retinas and optic nerve.
- Kidney function—Because kidneys depend on healthy circulation, elevated blood pressure has been shown to affect proper kidney function.**
- Sexual dysfunction— Women can experience decreased sexual desire and vaginal dryness, and men may have trouble having or maintaining an erection when blood pressure is elevated.*
The Herbal Extract and Essential Vitamin That Can Turn High Blood Pressure Around
The Mediterranean diet, which includes healthy fats like olive oil, is widely considered a blood pressure-friendly diet.
Extensive research has earned olive oil its reputation as one of the healthiest foods on earth.
The medicinal use of the fruit of the olive tree (Olea europaea) actually dates back thousands of years. And as it turns out, the lesser-hyped olive leaf may, in fact, possess the olive tree's most powerful healing properties.
Clinical Research Shows Amazing Blood Pressure Results
In what is perhaps the most significant clinical trial demonstrating the remarkable impact of herbal olive leaf extract in reducing blood pressure, researchers looked at 20 sets of identical twins (to minimize any differences in response based on genetics), with each twin assigned to a different group. Two clinical trials were conducted.*
In the first trial, which lasted 8 weeks, one set of twins was given 500 mg of a highly purified olive leaf extract daily, while the other set only received advice on lowering blood pressure with lifestyle changes.
Remarkably, the group receiving olive leaf extract showed reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, while the control group actually showed slight increases. What's more, the olive leaf group began to show improvements in as few as 7 days!*
In a second 8-week trial, researchers compared the effects of 500 mg daily dosage of the same olive leaf extract to a daily 1,000 mg dose. The results were astounding. Participants taking 1,000 mg of olive leaf extract saw significant reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as modest, but statistically significant reductions in total cholesterol and triglycerides after 8 weeks.*
More Evidence of Olive Leaf's Heart Health Benefits
Another double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 232 subjects echoed these results. It compared the blood pressure effects of a 1,000 mg dose of the same highly purified olive extract against a placebo.*
Researchers were once again wowed when the olive leaf extract reduced blood pressure when compared to baseline levels. By the end of the study, the olive leaf group's blood pressure went from an average of 145/91.3 to 133.5/86.5.*
And there was a bonus: To the researchers' surprise, the olive leaf group's cholesterol levels dropped by an average of 16 points!*
While these studies show that olive leaf extract on its own is an effective and convenient way to help address blood pressure issues, for a more complete solution, it is best to combine it with an important vitamin that far too many adults do not get enough of from their diet.
Vitamin K2: The Secret to Healthy Blood Pressure Your Doctor Hasn’t Mentioned
Vitamin K is actually a group of fat-soluble compounds, the most important of which are vitamins K1 and K2.
While Vitamin K1 deficiency is extremely rare, not getting enough vitamin K2 is quite common.
One reason for this is that Vitamin K2 is not stored in the body for as long as many other fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins A, D, and E.
Another reason is that Americans rarely eat K2-rich foods like organ meats including liver, or fermented foods such as sauerkraut or natto.
And while there is no standard lab test to measure levels of vitamin K, one revealing study of 452 healthy adults showed that 438 out of 452 had high levels of inactive matrix GLA protein—a protein that relies on Vitamin K2 to be broken down and absorbed. These results indicate that an astonishing 97% of participants likely had Vitamin K2 insufficiency.*
The Vitamin K2/Blood Pressure Connection
Vitamin K2 is vital for two things: bone health and cardiovascular health.
Vitamin K2 is required to carboxylate, or “turn on”, the matrix GLA Protein (MGP), which shuttles calcium where it is needed in your body, such as your bones.
But if you are low on vitamin K2, instead of fortifying your bones, calcium can continue to circulate in your blood steam, forming deposits on your blood vessels and arteries, forcing your heart to work harder…increasing your blood pressure.*
So, by reducing the risk of calcium deposits forming on blood vessel walls, vitamin K2 can help keep blood vessels flexible and pliable, helping to keep your blood pressure in the normal range.*
Simply put: The elasticity of blood vessels and arteries are vitally important to maintaining healthy blood pressure.
And the scientific evidence is overwhelming that this is exactly what vitamin K2 does:
- In a study of more than 36,000 people, researchers found that those with elevated blood pressure and serious blood sugar issues who also had higher intake of vitamin K2 had a substantially lower risk of significant artery problems.*
- In an observational study of 4,807 subjects, it was found that those with the highest intake of vitamin K2 (above 32.7 mcg/day) were found to have 50% lower overall risk for serious coronary artery issues.*
- In a cohort of more than 16,000 women, researchers observed that those with the highest intake of vitamin K2 had lower incidences of serious cardiovascular problems than those with the lowest intake of vitamin K2. Specifically, for every 10 mcg of vitamin K2 intake, there was a 9% reduced risk of serious cardiovascular issues.*
- In a study that is especially significant for women, participants who were given 180 mcg of vitamin K2 daily for a year showed clear improvements in vascular elasticity while participants also exhibited a statistically significant decrease in body weight and body mass (BMI).*
One Note of Caution: Daily intake of higher than 50 mcg of vitamin K2 may interfere with anticoagulants in a clinically significant way. So if you are taking blood-thinning medication, please consult your doctor before adding significant doses of vitamin K2 to your daily health regimen.*
