Those of us with PCOS are vulnerable to high blood pressure (hypertension), which is a common symptom of metabolic syndrome (also called syndrome x). This latter condition is a cluster of increased risk factors for heart disease
Fortunately, there are a number of ways to lower hypertension naturally.
Research links magnesium intake to a reduced risk of high blood pressure, which is the most common cause of stroke, and pre-eclamsia (pregnancy-induced hypertension). Good sources of magnesium include bran cereal, brown rice, almonds, hazelnuts, lima beans and spinach.
Calcium-rich foods like milk can reduce blood pressure. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends 1,000 mg to 1,200 mg. of calcium a day. Other good sources of calcium include yogurt, cheese, tofu, Chinese cabbage, broccoli, spinach and kale.
A compound in celery relaxes the smooth muscle lining of blood vessels, reducing blood pressure. The equivalent of four ribs of celery a day was found to lower blood pressure by 12-14% in studies.
Also make tomatoes a key ingredient in your diet. They contain kukoamines, which reduce high blood pressure.
