In this video, we’re going to talk about high systolic blood pressure and the different causes of high systolic blood pressure.
There is a condition for this called isolated systolic hypertension. This is the most common type of hypertension in those over 65 reported by the Mayo Clinic.
Causes of high systolic blood pressure:
• **High cortisol
High cortisol causes significant sodium retention and creates significant potassium suppression. Any time you suppress potassium, you can start getting high blood pressure from that alone. High cortisol can also affect the sympathetic nervous system. It can also cause the suppression of nitric oxide. Beets, garlic, meat, and dark green vegetables are high in nitric oxide.
Here are a few things you can try:
1. Take more vitamin D (at least 20,000 IUs with 200 micrograms of vitamin K2)
2. Consume more potassium
