Ginger is considered a useful plant that affects most of the internal systems: it improves digestion, affects the reproductive function of both sexes, strengthens the immune system, participates in the blood circulation process, reduces the severity of intoxication, promotes the burning of fat reserves. How does ginger affect pressure?
Ginger for hypertensive or hypotensive?
Surprisingly, despite the warming effect of the use of this plant, it still lowers the pressure. Ginger reduces blood density, respectively, facilitating its passage through the blood vessels - the principle of action is similar to the effect of acetylsalicylic acid, in the people Aspirin. When this occurs, the effect on the muscles: the effect of muscle relaxant relieves spasm, which reduces the intensity of the pain that occurs at this moment. Accordingly, there is a decrease in blood pressure. Thus, ginger is of the greatest value for hypertensive patients; however, this is not all.
- Regardless of whether the pressure from ginger rises or falls, it is impossible not to mention its beneficial effect on the state of the blood vessels in general, cleansing and increasing the tone of the walls. With frequent use of this product, the functioning of the vessels improves, they become "hardened", as a result of which the pressure normalizes and becomes less subject to sharp fluctuations, and the person himself becomes subject to apparent meteorological dependence.
- This plant can be useful with intracranial pressure. The arterial at the same time is sometimes reduced or is within the normal range, but the problem makes itself felt a strong headache, similar to a squeezing hoop. True, with a strong decrease in the use of ginger should be extremely careful.
Treatment of chronic hypertension or relief at the time of its exacerbation ginger is not subject to: like any food product, it has a rather mild effect, so it is not able to immediately remove the hypertensive crisis. But it can be included in preventive therapy or for the treatment of hypertension at an early stage.
How to use ginger to normalize pressure?
For the purpose of prevention, it is enough to simply include this product in the diet: for example, in pastries or second courses. But the most convenient way are decoctions, which are used as ordinary tea, combining with food. Enough to drink it once a day to strengthen the blood vessels. If you need to immediately return the pressure to normal, come to the aid of the classic recipe of concentrated ginger drink.
- Take a root with a length of 4-5 cm, pass through a grater (preferably with large holes), pour boiling water (1 l). Bring to a boil on the stove, cook for 15-20 minutes. on medium power, then remove from heat. You can drink with honey and / or lemon, 200 ml at a time.
- Internal reception of ginger is prohibited in the presence of bleeding of the digestive tract, gastritis and peptic ulcer disease, disorders of the liver, ischemia. Its use is also unacceptable for those who have suffered a stroke. During pregnancy, it is advisable to consult a doctor.
It should be said that pressure ginger can be used not only internally, but also externally: the classic “recipe” for hypertension, which allows for a gentle lowering of pressure, is a hot foot bath. Ginger decoction added to water (chopped root in 250 ml of boiling water, infused for 30-40 minutes) can enhance their effect. It is desirable that the ratio of broth and pure water is within 1: 8 or 1:16, but no more, otherwise the concentration will be too low.
In conclusion, it should be noted that the active use of ginger cannot be combined with the intake of antihypertensive drugs, since there will be an excessive increase in their effect, and the pressure, instead of returning to normal, will be dropped to a critical point. In addition, a sharp drop, even to normal values, also adversely affects the state of the body.
