"B" Is for "Beating" High Blood Pressure
B-vitamins are critical to good health, especially cardiovascular health. And here's further proof: Women who took 800 micrograms of folic acid (folate – a B Vitamin) a day lowered their risk of high blood pressure by 33 percent.
The study - presented at last year's High Blood Pressure Research Conference - followed 150,000 women, ages 26 to 70. While the younger women had the greatest reduction of risk, even women in the older age group lowered their risk of high blood pressure by 13 percent.
Natural sources of folate (Vitamin B) include tomatoes, beans, and leafy green vegetables.
My favorite source of natural Vitamin B (because many people don’t eat the above foods – or digest it if they do) is Standard Process Cataplex B. It contains the whole B vitamin complex and is a lot more than just folate.
