If I am going to make 1 cup of the most heart health, blood pressure lower vegetable only blend, what ingredients would I use, and in what quantity (i.e. kale, garlic, onion, red pepper, ginger, flax seed oil, etc) ?
There are too many heart healthy ingredients to narrow it down to just one recipe! If you have our Natural Healing Foods book, then check out the cardiovascular health section. In addition, look in our recipes section here on NutriLiving and search for heart heath, blood pressure, etc. Here's a great article on blood pressure up to get you started! http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/hypertension-and-dash-blast For veggies: focus on ones that have diuretic effects - Tomatoes Asparagus Artichokes Beets Brussels Sprouts Cabbage Carrots Cucumber Lettuce Watercress Celery

We recommend discussing any dietary changes, including the introduction of NutriBlasts, with your Dr. if you are taking these prescription medications. When consuming more fruits and vegetables, favorable outcomes such as reduced cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and improved sleep, among others, have been recorded. In this case, medication dosages would need to be adjusted. In addition, some foods may interact with certain medications (most notably grapefruit and citrus fruits) which might increase the potency of the drug and cause negative side effects.
