does onion help to reduce high blood pressure
i suffer high blood pressure and take medication for it but im trying to go on to natural foods to lower it
I don't know about onion, but I think garlic does. Here is a hub to check out: http://hubpages.com/hub/6-Foods-That-Lo … -Naturally
Yes latest study shows that regular consumption of onion helps lower blood pressure mildly but it should be eaten raw.
Garlic has much powerfull influence on lowering blood pressure.
An onions' organ-sulfur compounds and anti-inflammatory properties helps to combat heart disease, inhibit strokes, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and stimulate the immune system. Not surprising because it is a cousin of garlic.
Two to three tablespoons of onion essential oil a day was found to lower the systolic levels by an average of 25 points and the diastolic levels by 15 points in hypertension subjects.
I was told that garlic, help reduce high blood pressure...
I know that garlic works but never heard about onions.
I have written a hub on high blood pressure remedies but I don't think I'd stick with simply an herbal remedy though garlic, hawthorne, L-arginine, and magnesium are often mentioned.
It also depends on the reason for the high blood pressure. Sometimes even spinal misalignment that responds to chiropractic can reduce blood pressure (if that's the cause!)
Personally I think that a biofeedback devices, water, and transdermal magnesium hold more likely value.

The Trial can be read here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21036583
Another "heart healthy" componet would be reservatol, an element found in red wine, chocolate. (yeah!!!) The french are known to drink red wine, and have less incidence of heart disease, Known as the 'french parody". It also can be taken in supplement form. The study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3820045/
My article about heart health gives other useful information, as well as where to order. A liquid may be used as well. By placing a few drops under the tongue, it bypasses all other organs, and is straight into the blood stream. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Heart … irculation Hope it helps.
I would try "hibiscus tea" find the natural hisbiscus tea (not in bags). They look like large tea fibers and deep red almost black. Make a strong tea that looks like wine. Drink two large cups per day. In a study is was found to be as strong as coreg
