Diet is also one of the major causes of hypertension or high blood pressure. Consuming foods rich in sodium can lead to increased blood pressure. A balanced diet rich in Manganese, Potassium and Fibre is recommended for a hypertensive patient. Avoid eating too much of fats or meat. Cut down the intake of sugar and confectionery items. Eat at least four to five servings of fresh fruits and salads daily as they are rich in Manganese, Potassium and Fibre. Fibre gives a feeling of fullness and satiety so the intake of main course is reduced cutting down the calories.
A cold slice of watermelon can do more than just satisfy thirst and hunger during the warm summer months; it can help with bedroom satisfaction. Citrulline, the amino acid found in high concentrations of watermelon, is found to improve blood flow to the penis. A 2011 study revealed men who suffered from mild to moderate ED and took L-citrulline supplementation showed an improvement with their erectile function and were very satisfied. Natural watermelon juice, or “nature’s Viagra,” can also be easier on the stomach, since taking pills like Viagra can cause nausea and diarrhea.
I have a tank with some guppies, danios, 2 cory cats and a chineese algae eater. I live in an area with water that has a VERY high ph, its as high on the chart as my test strips get. The water is also very soft. I used apis ph down product for a while but i went through it really fast and I had to use probably 5x the recomended ammount to see any difference in the ph on my test strips. Im looking for another solution. Most of my fish have lived through the bad water, ive lost a couple. So im looking for another option aside from the ph down but the CAE will definately munch on anything i put in there so i want to be careful. (I used a weekend feeder once and it killed my 6+ year old CAE, I really dont want to loose any more fish to stupid things like that.) Would peat pellets in my filter box be the best option? Id consider drift wood if i was sure it would be safe and help but id rather not- ive got a neon/glow in the dark theme in my tank.
