Make a resolution to fill your plate with delicious foods that are good for your blood vessels. Eat 6 ounces of low-fat yogurt every three days to lower your blood pressure without increasing your calorie intake. Drink 16 ounces of low-calorie cranberry juice a day to help get blood pressure under control. It is rich in antioxidants.
Has your honey set so long it has crystallized? Loosen the lid, boil some water and sit the honey container in the hot water, but turn off the heat and let it liquify naturally. Never boil honey or put it in the microwave. It will kill the enzymes.
