Rich Bran Oil and Sesame Oil for Fighting High Blood Pressure
Blending these 2 oils will drop your systolic blood pressure by 14 points—and do more for your health, too!
They can lower your LDL cholesterol by 26%. Imagine that!
What’s more, these 2 cooking oils—which you can easily find in all supermarkets—are also really tasty. It just keeps getting better, doesn’t it?
They presented their findings in the American Heart Association’s scientific session on high blood pressure research.
The group conducted a 2-month study in New Delhi, India, on 300 men and women with mild to moderately high blood pressure. The average age of the participants was 57.
The participants were divided into 3 groups. The first group received only a blood pressure-lowering medication (Nifedipine) that acted as calcium channel blocker. The second group used the oil blend, and the third group used a combination of oil blend and the medication.
The participants used about an ounce of the oil for cooking every day.
The results were simply amazing.
All the participants showed a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure. Those who used the medication showed a decrease in systolic pressure of about 16 points.
The group that used only the oil blend showed a decrease in 14 points.
The group that used a combination of medications and oil blend showed a 36-point drop.
Their diastolic blood pressure also improved dramatically. A 12-point decrease in the group that took medication, 11 points in those who tried the oil blend, and 24 points in the group that used the combination.
But here is the most interesting part of the research—the oils did something better that the medications failed to do!
They caused a drop in LDL cholesterol level by about 26 percent and a 9.5 percent increase in HDL level. No such effect was observed in those who took only the medication.
It is believed that all the beneficial effects are due to the healthy fatty acids and antioxidants present in the oils such as sesamin, sesamol, sesamolin, and oryzanol.

Olive Oil for Fighting High Blood Pressure
It’s okay if you’re not the type of person to get really excited about tasty oil that just so happens to push your blood pressure way down.
That’s only one reason why this oil could make someone excited (besides the obvious yum! factor).
As it turns out, this oil is also really effective at combatting Alzheimer’s disease – and hey, it also lowers blood sugar levels.
The Mediterranean diet seems to include servings of all healthy food: green vegetables, red wine, olive oil, and portions of chicken and fish.
A Mediterranean salad typically contains fresh vegetables like spinach, lettuce, celery, and carrots that are full of nitrates and nitrites.
The nitrates and nitrites combine with the unsaturated fats found in olive oil (an essential part of Mediterranean diet) produce a specific type of fatty acid.
This nitro fatty acid inhibits an enzyme called epoxide hydrolase.
A research team based at Kings College London focused on finding out if this particular enzyme plays a key role in reducing blood pressure.
They created a line of mutant mice in which the gene for epoxide hydrolase was inactivated. They found that when the mice were fed a diet rich in unsaturated fat, the mutant mice had lowered blood pressure.
The study shows how a Mediterranean diet—with olive oil in the forefront—lowers blood pressure at the molecular level.
Even better, the same diet is shown to be effective for lowering blood sugar, Alzheimer’s disease and different types of cancer.
