So many people nowadays have high blood pressure. In Australia, it is one of the most prevalent health conditions with 1 in every 3 adults (on average) having high blood pressure. It is a disease that can lead to other, more serious and often fatal health problems such as strokes, heart attacks and even heart failure.
Increasing whole plant based foods is a great way to decrease that number and get yourself back in a healthy range.
Research has shown that oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables, and that the OPC quercetin is a natural supplement to lower blood pressure.
