For high blood pressure try raw dark cocoa powder. Not with dutch processing, because it removes the flavanols which are the key to lowering BP. The way to mix it is a cup of water in microwave for 1 min & 20 sec. if the water is too hot, it will weaken the flavanols. Add a heaping tablespoon of the cocoa powder.Also add cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon (the cinnamon helps with taste and any blood sugar issues you may have). High blood sugar may raise insulin which can raise BP. Add stevia for sweetness .Google Kuna indians and high blood pressure, also high blood pressure and raw dark cocoa. After several years of research, this has worked for me and I am 68 yrs old.
