Cayenne, CLA and Blood Pressure.
Sorry I can’t put this in Supplements because of my status, but I wanted to mention some good changes I noticed with the above supplements.
I’ve been getting back in shape after years of letting myself go. In the past 8 months, I’ve gone from about 24% body fat to about 17% body fat. I quit smoking, and I workout 5-6 days a week. My approach to being overall fit. I’m in good cardiovascular shape but I’m pre-hypertensive.
I take my blood pressure regularly, and have noticed a definite decrease in my blood pressure over the past 3 days of taking either Cayenne or CLA, or both. And, when I say I regularly take my blood pressure, I mean about 5-6 times a day over the past month.
My typical blood pressure is about 135/77. In the last month since I’ve stopped drinking coffee and have gone to teas, my BP went to about 132/75. With the addition of just these supplements, but BP has fallen to 125/72.
I don’t know whether my blood is thinning out, or whether my blood vessels are regaining elasticity (cayenne is supposed to do). I don’t really know of any effects CLA is supposed to have on blood pressure. Overall, I noticed a positive change in my blood pressure and wanted to pass along the thought of encouraging people to check out Cayenne as an herb..
If you think that the CLA has had a positive effect (but I haven’t lost any weight yet), please let me know.
