Blood Pressure then and now

    I have not had any labs done since starting VLC paleo near the first of Spring transitioning to VLC epipaleo however I took my BP at one of the sit-down BP machines at the local K-mart pharmacy. Early in the year my BP was 130 something over 80 something. Two weeks ago I used the same machine and my BP was 114/69. This is after losing a total of 52 pounds since early Spring. I AM considering getting a glucose meter to satisfy my curiosity about the effect of ketones, certain foods, and at different times of the day.

    In case someone could use the info, I read today that IV vitamin C can cause false high blood glucose readings. Anecdotally, someone on the Vitamin C Foundation wrote that oral liposomal vitamin C gave him higher glucose readings. Could be another case of a false reading? It made me wonder how the brain utilizes vitamin C when the body is in a ketogenic state since glucose is just one enzyme away from being vitamin C.

    BP is a function of the bio energenic metabolites for energy replenishment.......IV Mg has massive effects on BP. Just look at pre-eclampsia patients......and when you back it up with support for the mitochondria your BP will further go down. To get it to work longer term you need to slowly replenish those factors........niacin, B6, Mg, L-carnitine, D ribose, CoenQ10

    Coincidentally, I just started using a Coenzyme B Complex and Folinic acid (the reduced form of folic acid), and per your recommendation upped my intake of supplemental reduced CoQ10 to 400 mg per day. I will check the BP again in a few weeks.

    YOu might also add Acetyl L carnitine to maximize your ability to transfer fats across your inner mitochondrial membrane.......more efficiently. When you do this and optimize mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation in the heart it produces maximum cardiac fiber relaxations and decreases diastolic pressures very quickly. It simultaneously improve cardiac energy generations all both lower your BP big time.
