Watermelon: Heart Fresheners And Lowers Blood Press

Not only fresh, watermelon also contribute in maintaining our health. Such as maintaining blood pressure. Daily dose of watermelon extract can lower blood pressure and improve our arterial function. Efficacy is derived from the amino acid content in watermelon that called L-citrulline. By the body, amino acids will be converted into l arginine.
L-arginine is an important substance in the formation of nitric oxide, which would make the smooth muscles in the arteries to relax so the artery can be opened optimal. The result, blood pressure will drop and, watermelon is a natural source of L-citrulline richest. Pre-hypertension is a pioneer of hypertension or high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for stroke and heart attack. Aortic blood pressure (the largest artery) decreased in the nine participants, plus their artery function also increased. Weaknesses of these findings is that every person needs to consume about a 2 kg of watermelon every day to enjoy his usefulness to decrease their blood press. And it's highly unlikely! So, we can get a daily dose of the extract of some supplements of l-arginine to be easily consumed. We can eat watermelon in a tangible form, and assisted with additional supplements containing arginine. L-arginine supplements are needed to reduce the amount of anti-hypertensive medications required to control blood pressure.
