High blood pressure: Drinking this type of water could lower your reading 1

This follows a previous study by the University of Hertfordshire in 2012 revealed that not only could magnesium reduce blood pressure, the effect increased in line with increased dosage so the higher the intake of magnesium, the greater the drop in blood pressure.

According to Holland and Barrett, it’s thought that magnesium helps the body release prostacyclin, a hormone-like compound that reduces tension in blood vessel walls.

Magnesium is naturally found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach or kale, pumpkin seeds, wholegrain foods like brown bread or porridge, lentils, chickpeas and dark chocolate.

Exercise also plays an essential role in lowering blood pressure, as Harvard Health explained: “Regular physical activity makes your heart stronger. A stronger heart can pump more blood with less effort.
