💓 Second Worst Food That Causes High Blood Pressure – by Dr Sam Robbins
A while back I revealed the #1 food that causes high blood pressure. And NO, it wasn’t salt – not even close.
It’s a really important video that I want you to take a look at, after you watch this one. And I”ll give you the direct link to that video in a little bit.
However, today I want to discuss the second worst food type that causes high blood pressure… one that’s very bad for your entire health, especially your heart and circulatory system … one that most people are eating every single day, especially if you eat out… and that’s vegetable oils.
More specifically, the “so-called” healthy fats that are high in omega 6 fats. These would be
These oils are found in almost all packaged foods. They’re also heavily used in foods that you eat when you go to restaurants. Heck, they’re even found in so-called healthy food places such as Whole Foods, when you eat their hot, daily cooked items.
These fats are man-made, cheap, have long shelf-lives and create a large imbalance between the anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats.
The problem with these omega 6 fats is they cause inflammation and decrease insulin sensitivity.
Inflammation is a major cause of so many health problems – including many related to the heart and brain. Thus, leading to negative changes in your cholesterol and lipid levels, hypertension and a decrease in blood flow. Thus, increasing your risk for a heart attack and stroke.
Secondly, the insulin resistance, increases blood sugar levels, which further causes inflammation, is also a major cause of many illnesses, including hypertension.
So, decrease and try to eliminate these vegetable oils.
Make sure you read the labels of the foods you eat.
And some will say “what about olive oil”? IF you can get real, extra virgin olive oil – that’s fine. But many olive oils are spiked or cut with these vegetable oils to save money. Some will say it on the ingredient panels and others just won’t.
I’d rather you just ate whole olives.
And don’t think you can undo the damage by simply eating more omega 3 fats such as fish or flaxseed oil.
The ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 is 2:1 or 1:1
Yet, these days we are consuming a 20:1 or as much as a 100:1 ratio of omega 6:3. So, no amount of extra omega 3 fats is going to undo the damage and the imbalance.
A much better, safer and cheaper way is to simply reduce and eliminate the omega 6 fats from these unhealthy vegetable oils.
You’ll be so much healthier, you’ll lose fat, gain more muscle, your brain will function better, your heart will be healthier and your blood pressure will be lower.
