Hypertension Day 1

Results

Yesterday I drank the mung bean tea, for hypertension, in the morning, afternoon, and evening then ate the mung beans before starting another batch of the tea.  The tea itself has a unique flavor that is not off-putting but will take some getting used to for those that don’t eat a lot of beans or are used to having a lot of seasoning with them.

Wait, what else are you doing?

Some may be asking why I am not mentioning any crazy dietary or physical activity changes as part of this experiment.  The reason is simple, we live a relatively healthy and active lifestyle which I don’t feel needs modification.  If you are at the high end of the blood pressure scale and have not reviewed your diet and physical activity then that should be your first course of action, right now; go ahead, we’ll wait.
So there is no question my daily supplements consist of: tincture of dong quai and red reishi mushroom, taken sublingual, and 100mg of Coenzyme Q10, and a glass of our Green Power Blend.  I do not take a multi-vitamin any longer as they really don’t accomplish anything and with a good diet, you will get the proper vitamins and minerals you need.
These supplements do play a role in a healthy heart and do help to reduce hypertension but I do not feel they will skew any results as I have been taking them for quite some time and stopping usage of them would most likely cause a larger skew.

Blood Pressure Results Day 1

This morning, after having a good breakfast and the first dose of mung bean tea I took my blood pressure at our local Rite-Aid.  The results are not spectacularly different from my current baseline but they are a little lower on both the systolic and diastolic, my heart rate has always been in the normal range.
There isn’t much to take away from this right now but this evening after our Taekwon-Do class I will take another reading to record one after exerting myself through structured physical activity.
