You’ll NEVER hear this blood pressure tip from ANYONE in a white coat!

Most docs are HYPER-FOCUSED on what they consider “high” blood pressure

While they IGNORE its root causes!

Because hypertension isn’t just about your numbers… no matter how much a TINY spike can get your doc salivating.

He wants to put you on a drug to get your blood pressure as low as it can possibly go!

That’s NOT what you need.

Here’s a way to get strong but relaxed blood vessels… and maintain PERFECT vascular health

Because that, in turn, will normalize your BP readings… and finally SILENCE your nagging doc!

The Chinese flower secret to perfect vessel health

Despite its name, the Japanese pagoda tree (Styphnolobium japonicum) is actually native to China.

There, its white flowers are considered among the 50 fundamental herbs of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

This ancient herb is one of the plant kingdom’s most ABUNDANT  sources of a compound called rutin… the dried flower buds possibly containing as much as 20% of this flavonoid.

And that could be the key to the Japanese pagoda tree’s potency as a hypotensive agent.

In plain English, that means it can LOWER your blood pressure!

Rutin works, in part, by reducing the vascular resistance that often accompanies stiff arteries.

Lower resistance means better blood flow.

Rutin can also pump the brakes on “leaky” vessels (a.k.a. vascular permeability)… so you can keep your blood where it belongs… and any unwelcome intruders OUT of your bloodstream.

That’s because rutin can also strengthen your blood vessel walls… and keep them from becoming brittle, a common complication of aging.

And both of those improvements will make your blood flow better, too.

In addition to rutin, Japanese pagoda tree flowers also contain a fair amount of quercetin – another flavonoid that’s known for reducing blood pressure.

In fact, rutin CONTAINS quercetin… but you’d need a degree in biochemistry to understand exactly how their molecular structures are related.

Don’t worry…

All you need to know is that both rutin and quercetin are antioxidants… and both have somewhat of a diuretic effect.

Alleviating water retention, as you know, is one of the most COMMON ways to reduce blood volume and relieve the pressure inside your vessels.

In Chinese herbalism, Japanese pagoda tree is known as “Huai Hua” (the flowers), “Hua Mi” (the flower buds), “Huai Hua Mi,” or simply “sophora flower.”

You can usually find both the flowers and the buds in dried form at your local Asian specialty market or online.

The Chinese traditionally drink them steeped in hot water as a tea

But you may be able to find prepared teas or powders at your local health food store.

Rutin and quercetin supplements are also widely available (and affordable).
