Fred’s 11th Week on Ketovore: Lowers Blood Pressure

Aug 18, 2023 | His Journey

In week 11 on the ketovore diet, I want to address outside of weight loss, the second biggest improvement I have encountered.  Ketovore lowers blood pressure.

Blood pressure, the force exerted by blood against the walls of arteries, is a crucial indicator of cardiovascular health. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a common condition that significantly increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular complications. My experience thus far has had a tremendous affect on my numbers.

As you can see below, my blood pressure at the beginning of the year was a consistent 165/103 – 180/110–which is bad, bad, bad.  All through 2022 my blood pressure would go up or down but was consistently high no matter what I did.  Remember I was walking every day in 2022 as well.  It would help it go down about 10 points with an hour long walk, but nothing was dropping it much.

The ketovore diet’s influence on insulin sensitivity plays a role in blood pressure regulation. By restricting carbohydrates, the diet helps stabilize blood sugar levels, reducing insulin spikes and promoting insulin sensitivity. Improved insulin sensitivity contributes to healthier blood vessel function and lessens the strain on the cardiovascular system. The increase in dietary fats, particularly those rich in omega-3 fatty acids, can also positively impact blood pressure. Omega-3s possess anti-inflammatory properties and promote vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels, which helps maintain healthy blood flow and lower blood pressure levels.

Today, without having to walk or do breathing exercises, I can take my blood pressure on a whim and it is always, always, always around 120s.  Ketovore lowers blood pressure.
