This could be considered the most powerful heart herb on earth. And you most likely have it sitting in your kitchen cabinets already.
In a study published in the Indian Journal of Biochemistry and Biophysics, not only did it help participants to drop high blood pressure 19 points …
… it also almost eliminated plaque build-up in their heart and oxidation of their cells.
And did I mention it’s delicious and can be found in all supermarkets dirt cheap?
Wonders of Cardamom – It Can Drop High Blood Pressure
Apart from being used for flavouring foods, cardamom is used as a digestive tonic and an essential oil in aroma therapy. It has antioxidant, disease-preventing and health-promoting properties.
Cardamom oil has therapeutic properties and is used in many traditional medicines. It is also a good source of minerals such as potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium.
Application of cardamom paste to the forehead gives instant relief from headache. Chewing cardamom before going out in the hot summer sun provides protection against heat strokes.
Regular use of a mix of cardamom powder and honey gives relief from asthma and whooping cough. It also helps improve the voice and hence, is consumed by vocalists.
Most important it helps control high blood pressure!
The researchers gave their volunteers (all suffering high blood pressure) 1.5 grams of cardamom powder, twice a day for 12 weeks.
One-quarter of a tablespoon full equals around 1.5 grams, if you want to try this at home.
At the end of the study, the participant’s average systolic blood pressure had dropped 19 points and diastolic 12 points.
So, those with high blood pressure of 140/90 could possibly bring their pressure down to a healthy level of 120/80 using nothing but cardamom powder.
Even more importantly, the antioxidant levels in their blood improved 90%. This is extremely important as oxidation is the main cause of cholesterol plaque build-up in the heart, causing heart attack and stroke.
But how does cardamom help to drop high blood pressure so drastically?
Turns out it has the exact same function as calcium channel blockers (one of the most common blood pressure medications), without any side effects.
This makes cardamom the most powerful herb I’ve heard of that can drop high blood pressure.
