Which NutriBlasts are recommended for high cholesterol and blood pressure?

I just purchased a Nutribullet and am new to healthy living through food extraction. I have listened to the testimonials and videos on the nutribullet website about remarkable stories concerning individuals who have been able to stop taking cholesterol and blood pressure medication. I would like to be counted as one of those people. I am 60 years old and take medications every day to control both cholesterol and high blood pressure. I have discussed a plan with my cardiologist to begin an exercise program and diet inclusive of the nutribullet to eliminate these medications from my daily intake. Since my doctor will be checking my blood pressure and cholesterol via blood tests periodically, while being off the medication, I will be able to safely monitor my progress with the objective of a healthier lifestyle without statins and blood pressure medication. My questiion concerns advice on specific recipes (vegetables, fruits, boosts, etc.) recommended nutirblasts that will address the issues mentioned.

Dietitian's Answer

We have some great recipes on this site for heart health in addition to the ones in the Natural Healing Foods book. Submit a search for "cholesterol" to find articles, recipes and healing foods. Almost anything you put in a NutriBlast will benefit you. These foods are filled with fiber and antioxidants...two important components to help reduce cholesterol. Focus on soluble fiber - this type binds "bad" LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. They contain a great amount of soluble fiber, which helps bind cholesterol and remove it from your body! Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods. http://huhs.harvard.edu/assets/file/ourservices/service_nutrition_fiber.pdf Outside of NutriBlasting, I'd recommend cutting back on animal based foods (meats, dairy, eggs, etc.) as these contain saturated fats and additional dietary cholesterol. With continuous NutriBlasting...over time, you will more than likely see your numbers drop! Foods rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, potassium, monounsaturated fats and omega 3 fatty acids help lower blood pressure. Foods to eat all leafy greens like kale, spinach, romaine and chard beets broccoli asparagus cabbage celery crimini mushrooms onions garlic almonds walnuts rice bran (rich in magnesium and many B vitamins) strawberries kiwi tomatoes papaya raspberries oranges bell peppers
