hot cocoa and cinnamon cures high blood pressure?
Will wonders never cease? This is interesting!

"Could hot cocoa be the next "wonder drug" for high blood pressure?
HARVARD RESEARCHERS PRAISE STUNNINGLY SIMPLE DISCOVERY!

According to recent estimates, nearly 1-in-3 American adults has high blood pressure. But for the Kuna Indians living on a group of islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama, hypertension doesn't even exist. In fact, after age 60, the average blood pressure for Kuna Indian islanders is a perfect 110/70.

Is it because they eat less salt? No. Kuna Indians eat as much, if not more salt, than people in the U.S.

Is it due to their genes? No. Kuna Indians who move away from the islands are just as likely to suffer from high blood pressure as anyone else!

So what makes these folks practically "immune" to hypertension -- and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?

Harvard researchers were stunned to discover it's because they drink about 5 cups of cocoa each day. That's right, cocoa!

Studies show the flavonols in cocoa stimulate your body's production of nitric oxide -- boosting blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. In fact, one study found cocoa thins your blood just as well as low-dose aspirin!

But that's not all. A Harvard Medical School professor claims cocoa can also treat blocked arteries, congestive heart failure, stroke, dementia, even impotence!

The candy store treat that lowers your blood pressure. Contains more than eight times as many heart-healthy flavonols as red wine!

Cut your risk of high blood pressure by more than two-thirds simply by drinking this great tasting beverage each morning. Works no matter what your family history!"

and hmmm... who knows?

"The cinnamon cure for high blood sugar

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on your toast, cereal, oatmeal, or sliced apples. It not only tastes good, it lowers your blood sugar!

In a recent study, people reduced their blood sugar levels by as much as 29 percent in just 40 days. That's with NO drugs, NO diet changes -- just plain old cinnamon!"

Not sure I buy it. what do you think? I've tried the 4000mg of garlic and found that that works. Fish oil... Any other good ones with links?

People who like chocolate and have high blood pressure should eat very dark (plain) chocolate. You can get brands now that contain 70-85% cocoa. I have been eating it for six months and my BP went down 20 points.

Re: hot cocoa and cinnamon cures high blood pressure?
Here's another interesting one... mostly for the ladies.

Raspberry Leaf is known as one of the best all-around tonics for the female reproductive organs and for pregnancy.
You are probably familiar with the popular fruit, the Raspberry (Rubus idaeus). The raspberry is native to many parts of Europe and North America. The leaves of the raspberry plant have been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. It is thought to have many varied properties including those that are beneficial for menstrual problems, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
Traditional uses of Red Raspberry Tincture:
for PMS symptoms
for Menstrual pain (our tincture can eliminate the strongest menstrual cramps within 10 min. of consumption!!! )
to regulate irregular menstruation cycles
to ease the symptoms of morning sickness
to soothe and prevent bleeding gums, which many pregnant women often experience
to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus when it is contracting (Burn & Withell, 1941)
to assist with the birth of the baby and the placenta.
to calm cramping of the uterus
to provide a rich source of iron, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. The magnesium content is especially helpful in strengthening the uterine muscles
Raspberry leaf also contains vitamins B1, B3, and E, which are valuable in pregnancy
to help eliminate magnesium deficiency symptoms
Raspberry leaf is also used for the following:
to aid fertility
to promote a plentiful supply of breast milk
to help stop excess bleeding after birth
to treat diarrhea
to regulate irregular menstrual cycle and to decrease heavy periods
to relieve sore throats
to reduce fever
It is thought that around one-fifth of pregnant women take some form of raspberry leaf.

Re: hot cocoa and cinnamon cures high blood pressure?
Could have been the cloves also

"Health Benefits
Clove contains significant amounts of an active component called eugenol, which has made it the subject of numerous health studies, including studies on the prevention of toxicity from environmental pollutants like carbon tetrachloride, digestive tract cancers, and joint inflammation. In the United States, eugenol extracts from clove have often been used in dentistry in conjunction with root canal therapy, temporary fillings, and general gum pain, since eugenol and other components of clove (including beta-caryophyllene) combine to make clove a mild anaesthetic as well as an anti-bacterial agent. For these beneficial effects, you'll also find clove oil in some over-the-counter sore throat sprays and mouth washes.

Anti-Inflammatory Activity
Eugenol, the primary component of clove's volatile oils, functions as an anti-inflammatory substance. In animal studies, the addition of clove extract to diets already high in anti-inflammatory components (like cod liver oil, with its high omega-3 fatty acid content) brings significant added benefits, and in some studies, further reduces inflammatory symptoms by another 15-30%. Clove also contains a variety of flavonoids, including kaempferol and rhamnetin, which also contribute to clove's anti-inflammatory (and antioxidant) properties.
A Nutrient-Dense Spice

Like its fellow spices, clove's unique phytonutrient components are accompanied by an incredible variety of traditionally-recognized nutrients. Using our nutrient ranking system, we determined cloves to be an excellent source of manganese, a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids and a good source of calcium and magnesium."

cinnamon reduces sugar or glucose in the blood, acting as a natural insulin, which contributes to arterial sclerosis which is the true cause of HBP.

Re: hot cocoa and cinnamon cures high blood pressure?
Do not forget Primrose oil, especially for females, very effective in hormonal disorders , high cholesterol levels pregnancy , lactation , liver disorder etc

The French paradox, inspite of having a fat rich diet(having so many varieties of cheese 130+, for example) people in France are able to maintain low levels of cholestrol, all thanks to red wine made from red grapes.

Red grape skin and its seeds are also very effective in lowering bad cholesterol and especially the grape skin has a very high antioxidant content , used in many skincare products.

The Japanese have a natural cholesterol fighter in the native diet. fermented tofu , called Miso, Nato (if i am getting the names correct).

• Uterine stimulant! Not used medicinally during PREGNANCY.
• NOT used in overheated and feverish conditions.
• Not used with stomach or intestinal ULCERS.
