Honey the Best Natural Treatment of High Blood Pressure with No Side Effects, Scientists Say

By Kyle J. Norton

On seeking natural therapy with no side effects, scientists may have a herbal remedy for normalizing the blood pressure, according to studies.

Hypertension is a chronic condition caused by abnormally high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a condition of a cluster of metabolic syndrome associated with the increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood.

In high blood pressure individuals, due to the elevated blood pressure in your arteries, the heart has to work harder than normal to pump blood through the blood vessels.

In low blood pressure individuals, the reduced blood pressure in the arteries drops can cause the heart to pump blood at a slower rate than normal.

According to the standard guidelines, the levels of blood pressure is normal if it is more than 120 over 80 and less than 140 over 90 (120/80-140/90).

People with blood pressure lower than 120/80 are considered normal without accompanied by symptoms of light-head or dizziness.

According to the statistics provided by the CDC, in the U.S. 29% or 100 millions of the adults have hypertension during 2015–2016 and hypertension prevalence increased with age and was 33.2% among those aged 40–59 and 63.1% among those aged 60 and over.

Honey, the rich golden liquid is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.

The liquid is considered one of the healthy food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.

Researchers in the course of finding a natural ingredient for the treatment of high blood pressure investigated the safety and effect intrapulmonary administration (by inhalation) of 60 % honey solution, 10% dextrose or distill water in normal or diabetic subjects.

Twenty-four healthy subjects, 16 patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus and six patients with hypertension were selected to participate in the study.

Twelve healthy subjects were subjected for distilling water inhalation for 10 min, and after one week they received inhalation of honey solution (60% wt/v) for 10 min. Another 12 healthy subjects received inhalation of 10% dextrose for 10 min.

Honey treatment showed a mild reduction of blood pressure compared to no change in another group.

In time perspective, systolic and diastolic blood pressure was reduced by honey inhalation in hypertensive patients at 60 and 120 min.

After taking into account co and confounders, researchers said, "honey inhalation was safe and effective in reducing...elevated blood pressure in hypertensive patients".

Moreover, in order to obtain more information of honey antihypertensive activity, researchers investigated the aqueous extract obtained from the mixture of the fresh leaf of Persea Americana, stems and a fresh leaf of Cymbopogon citratus, fruits of Citrus medica and honey on ethanol and sucrose-induced hypertension in rats.

Rats included in the study were divided into eight groups of 6 rats each and daily treated for 5 weeks. The control group received distilled water (1 mL/kg) while rats of groups 2, 3 and 4 received ethanol 40 degrees (3 g/kg/day), 10% sucrose as drinking water and the two substances respectively.

The remaining groups received additional sucrose and ethanol, the aqueous extract (50, 100 and 150 mg/kg) or nifedipine (10 mg/kg) respectively.

Group treated with ethanol and sucrose showed a significantly (p < 0.001) increased the blood pressure and the heart rate compared to distilled water treated-rats.

Chronic treatment of ethanol and sucrose also exerted a significantly decreased the activities of antioxidant enzymes produced by the host, observed by the levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) and elevated levels of oxidative stress observed by the stress marker malondialdehyde (MDA) levels.

However, administration of the aqueous extract or nifedipine prevented all changes caused by chronic ethanol and sucrose, including the hemodynamic, biochemical, oxidative and histological impairments.

The finding clearly suggested that aqueous extract including honey possess antihypertensive activity by the improvement of biochemical and oxidative status, through its antioxidant property.

Taken altogether, honey used alone or combined with other herbs may be considered anti hypertension functional remedies with no side effects, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
