Answer

Hi David,

Unfortunately, lowering blood pressure successfully requires a long term plan. I would not expect these steps to give results within 24 hours; however, they will promote a lower blood pressure.

Check out this article to make sure you have a solid foundation in place to promote a lower blood pressure:

Make sure you have an adequate intake of the minerals calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Don't forget to include omega 3 fatty acids in your diet. Eat fish, especially fish high in omega 3 fatty acids like salmon. Eat fish as a regular part of your diet and you'll improve your health for the long term.

When it comes to minerals and supplements, do not go overboard on the amount. More is not necessarily better. Here are two more articles with information on omega 3 fatty acids and magnesium:
