Is Orange Juice Good To Take If You Have High Blood Pressure

Does orange juice help high blood pressure?

Answer

Hello Renitta:

Studies do show drinking orange juice helps lowers a persons risk of heart disease and improves blood vessel function. Doctors do feel that a good diet is the most important factor in heart disease. So keep in mind an overall healthy diet is ideal.

So to answer your question, orange juice is okay to take if you have high blood pressure. Keep in mind, you would want to drink a "healthy type" of OJ, several have sugar added. Be sure to by 100% fruit juice, no sugar added.

Take care,
