How to use abere for hypertension ( high blood pressure)
The truth is, orthodox medications are still the most effective drugs for the management and control of hypertension globally. However, some plants (herbs) have been found to help lower blood pressure…. an example of such herb is Abere seed (Miracle seed) whose botanical name is Hunteria Umbellata…abere seed have been reported from various researches to help regulate blood pressure and treat hypertension.
For hypertension, chew 2 – 3 seeds of abere morning and night…You can also grind about 3-4 abere seeds and use it as tea every morning and evening. It helps reduce high blood pressure and also helps your libido and erection. Do not mix abere and alcohol (gin) for hypertension please.
Caveat: Yes, abere lowers lowers blood pressure, it should never be a substitute to the scientifically approved anti-hypertensives OR visiting your cardiologist.
