Turmeric for lower blood pressure

I recently received some feedback regarding tumeric and its beneficial effects on our blood pressure. I’ve heard this before although haven’t used it enough to gauge it effectiveness.

Maybe I should start collecting some curry recipes that uses tumeric.

It would be interesting to hear from other people and about tumeric and its effect on the cardiovascular system.

The feedback I am referring to is pasted below.

Simon,

I’ve known about the health benefits of turmeric for years.
It has powerful immune boosting properties & is a natural
anti-inflammatory agent. It is available in capsules at
health food stores.

My wife hates curry (I love it) but she does take the
capsules. I did not know, however, that it helps lower BP.
Unfortunately, I recently had to go on Lopressor for high
BP after years of keeping it down naturally.

One day it spiked to 161/130! Stress & excess weight are
the two main culprits, I think. I’m working on reducing both.

I printed out your book & it got me having organic oatmeal
with lots of seeds & nuts for breakfast most mornings. A
little low GI fruit. That’s pretty much all the carbs I eat
for the day. I avoid white stuff (bread, sugar, pasta,
potatoes, etc). Lunch is usually some kind of salad & dinner
is poultry, fish or sometimes steak with a vegetable.
The scale is finally moving in the right direction.
