1) WHAT ARE THEY?
Diuretics help remove excess sodium (salt) and water from the body, and in doing this, promote the production and excretion of urine. Diuretics that aren’t “potassium-sparing” can cause us to lose potassium as well. We need to be careful about losing potassium. More about that later.
2) HOW DO THEY HELP WITH REDUCING MY HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?
As we discussed in our eBook, water goes where salt is. If there is too much salt in our blood vessels, more water will be drawn into those blood vessels, which increases the pressure inside of them. Hence, high blood pressure. So more fluid, higher pressure; less sodium in blood vessels (and therefore less fluid in blood vessels), lower blood pressure.
Some examples of diuretics used to treat high blood pressure:
3) WHAT ARE SOME POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM THESE DIURETICS?
4) DOES NATURE’S PHARMACY CONTAIN ANY POTASSIUM-SPARING DIURETICS?
YES! And Hibiscus tops the list! Plus there are a couple other potential natural diuretics (not necessarily potassium-sparing) like cucumber and cranberry (which is also an ingredient in 120/Life).
So make sure to drink your reds!
