Decrease High Blood Pressure Naturally With Green Teas
In the following, we will discuss how to lower high blood pressure sustainably and naturally with healing teas, especially with the green teas known as GABA and Sencha as well as Eucommia and Dattan Soba (Tatarian buckwheat).
Treat the causes of high blood pressure naturally – Teas Can Help!
The known conventional blood pressure lowering medicines only help a certain amount of people in the fight against high blood pressure, despite their strong dosage and the combination of different preparations. Moreover, they may cause severe side effects and strain the body. They prevent any healing, on the contrary, they cause even more damage by suppressing only the symptoms.
The regular intake of various natural health teas, on the other hand, can make an important contribution to a sustained reduction or optimization of high blood pressure (hypertension). It is important to understand that in contrast to conventional blood pressure medicines, natural teas support the healing of the causes and not only inhibit symptomatic transient signals.
Of all teas and herbal infusions, two Japanese green tea varieties (GABA and Sencha as powder) and two other Asian teas (Dattan Soba and Eucommia) play a prominent role in therapy. Just the combination of these four teas throughout the day unfolds a synergistic and additive effect. They will unfold their impact relatively quickly. The teas represent a central pillar in the natural treatment of high blood pressure and its causes.
Green tea for hypertension and cardiovascular problems
Many scientific studies show that already the usual green tea varieties, such as the well-known Japanese base varieties Gyokuro, Sencha and Bancha, have besides their numerous general health effects, also very positive effects in hypertension and cardiovascular problems:
- Reduces the formation of deposits in the vessels
- Enhances the elasticity of the blood vessels
- Improves the metabolism and function of the metabolic organs
- Reduces the production of too much angiotensin, a substance which produces hypertension
- Contributes to a better blood flow
- Improves the pump function of the heart
This basic package is ideal for the prevention and maintenance of your general health. However, for a more precise approach to the causes and symptoms of hypertension, there are special types of tea and applications that are highly effective and will be explained in more detail below.
Special teas for hypertension
GABA Tea (Green Tea)
Especially, the so-called GABA tea (also called Gabaron) must be emphasized. This is a green tea treated with nitrogen for several hours. As a result, certain amino acids are decomposed in the tea leaf and the special amino acid GABA is formed to a high degree. GABA tea has by far the highest amount of GABA of all foods with 150 to 400mg of GABA per 100g of tea.
GABA has been shown to have a very positive effect on hypertension and, as the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter, directly affects the stress management of the brain. In several studies, a significant and rapid blood pressure-lowering effect was confirmed in both human and animal experiments. The GABA tea should be the most important of all teas in the natural therapy of hypertension.
GABA also has
- a calming effect
- improves sleep
- increases the concentration
- supports the liver and kidneys
- increases the growth hormone somatropin, which improves muscle building and reduces fat
- works against diabetes and has also been found to be effective in animal experiments against leukemia.
Even more effective than the GABA tea alone is its combination with a series of other special teas, which together have a broader and more intense impact.
Sencha Powder (Green Tea)
The second green tea, which is highly recommended, is the Japanese Sencha tea. In high quality, it is known as the “queen of the green teas”, since it contains a harmonious balance of all important ingredients of the tea plant. It is rich in catechins, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and much more. For applications regarding hypertension, it is recommended as an initial cure, especially as a powder (Sencha powder).
Its main purpose here is:
- the support and regeneration of the liver
- the improvement of metabolism
- the reduction of inflammation and
- the support of the cardiovascular system.
Dattan Soba Tea (Tatary buckwheat tea)
Dattan Soba Tea is the Japanese name for the so-called Tatary buckwheat tea containing the roasted seeds of the Tatary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tartaricum Gaertn). They contain special flavonoids, in particular a very high amount of the flavonoid rutin, much more than in the simple buckwheat tea. Rutin is also sometimes referred to as vitamin P. This substance improves the microcirculation in the capillaries and venules, reduces their permeability and seals the vessels. Edemas and their growth are also reduced. Dattan Soba also helps prevent arteriosclerosis.
Tokucha tea (Eucommia tea)
The Eucommia tea (Japanese: Tochucha, Chinese: Du Zhong) is produced from the bark of the Asian tree Eucommia ulmoides. It is very common in Asia and is considered a special healing tea. It can be a strong detoxifier for the blood, strengthen the immune system, and is particularly effective on liver and kidneys. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is famous for its antihypertensive effect.
Preparation and Ingestion of the Teas
Intensive initial treatment (level 1, max 2-3 months)
The four above mentioned teas should be drunk as an initial treatment for 2-3 months daily. They develop very strong effects and should only be used daily for a limited period of time. Should side effects occur, e.g. dizziness, nervousness or nausea, this may be due to severe detoxification or other physical changes. It is then recommended in any case to reduce the dosage of the respective tea, which causes the side effects, until the symptoms disappear. Possibly, the amount of tea intake should be increased gradually and slowly.
It is also important to drink sufficient fresh water. The rule of thumb is: 30ml of water per kg of body weight. Otherwise, the freed-up toxins and slags may not be eliminated sufficiently. In addition, it is recommended to include in the procedure some natural minerals and trace elements, for instance as supplements. This is due to the fact that the body usually requires them a lot in this phase.
Stage 1: Lower Blood Pressure (2-3 months)
|Type of Tea||Dosage & Water per portion, Steeping Temperature and Time||When?||Additional Information|
|Sencha Powder||1 x daily, preferably at noon. Never drink on an empty stomach. About 20-30 minutes after eating.||Prepare the powdered Sencha as follows: Put the powder in a Matcha dish, pour hot water over it, and whip cream for about 20 seconds with a Matcha broom. Drink immediately afterwards.|
|Gaba Tea||2 x daily: morning and evening, not on an empty stomach. The best is 40 minutes after the meal.|
|Dattan Soba Tea||2 x daily, ideally in the late morning and afternoon. Possible on an empty stomach.||The buckwheat should be eaten after the infusion. It has not got any caffeine, so you can also drink it late at night.|
|Eucommia Tea||1 x daily, late in the evening, ideally before going to sleep. Do not eat on an empty stomach.|
Stage 2: Gentle continuation
As soon as the high blood pressure reaches normal or acceptable values, a change should take place in the second stage. Here, the very strong Sencha powder is replaced by a strong Sencha tea and the Eucommia tea should only be taken once or twice a year as a two-week cure. The Gaba tea is reduced to 2-3 times a week. You can change then slowly into the daily Green Tea basic set consisting of Gyokuro, Sencha and Bancha which will be supplemented at certain times with GABA, Eucommia and Soba tea (see the table below). You can follow this procedure continuously which will enable your body to heal more and more.
|Type of Tea||Dosage & Water per portion, Steeping Temperature & Time||When?||Additional Information|
|Basic Green Teas||Always drink 1 Gyokuro, Sencha and Bancha daily.||Gyokuro in the morning, Sencha in the afternoon, Bancha in the evening.|
|Sencha Powder||1 x a year, for 2 weeks daily, best at noon. Best treatment time: spring. Never drink on an empty stomach. About 20-30 minutes after eating.||Prepare the powdered Sencha as follows: Put the powder in a Matcha dish, pour hot water over it, and whip cream for about 20 seconds with a Matcha broom. Drink immediately afterwards.|
|Gaba Tea||2-3 x per week. Best in the morning, not on an empty stomach. Best taken 40 minutes after the meal.|
|Dattan Soba Tea||Approximately every 4 weeks a short treatment of 2 days, drinking it 2 times daily, ideally in the late morning and afternoon. intake on an empty stomach is possible.||The buckwheat should be eaten after the infusion. Has no caffeine, can be consumed even late at night.|
|Eucommia Tea||1 x per year, for about 2 weeks daily, 1 x daily, late in the evening, ideal before sleeping. Best treatment time: spring. Do not consume on an empty stomach.|
If there is no success in stage 1: change for 4 weeks in stage 2 and then restart.
If there is no success in stage 1, a break of 4 weeks is required after the 2-3 months of the initial treatment. During this time the teas or the dosing regimen of stage 2 should be changed. You can then go back to step 1. This can be repeated as desired.
All mentioned teas should be purchased in high quality and without any pesticides. The success depends not inconsiderably on a sufficiently high quality of the teas and the regularity of the intake.
Side effects and risks of the tea treatment
Studies show that green tea may affect the effect of high blood pressure medicines (e.g. beta blockers). Therefore, it is recommended to discuss the use of green tea with the treating physician when taking antihypertensive medication. In addition, the green tea should be taken after a significant period of time of the medication. A spokesman for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society recommended in an interview with the BBC a gap between 4 hours.
People with severe heart disease or kidney problems should only drink the Eucommia tea in moderation and observe the side effects such as a drop in blood pressure, dizziness or nausea. This can also be related to the highly detoxifying effect. Then the amount should be reduced accordingly and a lot of fresh water should be drunk.
In addition, in the case of very high blood pressure, it is advisable to consult a doctor or an alternative practitioner. With this contact person, any intake of effective teas should be balanced and coordinated.
