It is widely believed that the use of alcohol at therapeutic doses is able to regulate blood pressure readings. Most often, in this context referred to the cognac. At the same time there are conflicting views: some people believe that the Cognac at low pressure increases it, others recommend a drink for the treatment of hypertension.
The feasibility of using alcohol as a medicine is in doubt because of the harmful properties of alcohol and its ability to cause dependence. To answer the question whether or not to drink alcohol at low pressure, it is possible, to understand how the different drinks affect the human body, especially the cardiovascular system.
Cognac may be advised to use for medicinal purposes in patients with hypotension, and hypertension. This is because that this drink can both increase the pressure and reduce it. What will be the effect depends on the dose, which was accepted by people.
In the first minutes after the consumption of brandy has a vasodilatory effect, so that the pressure drop slightly. Over time, the heart begins to work at a higher rate - heart rate increases, the blood circulates with increased intensity. As a result, increases vascular tone. This results in a higher rate on the blood pressure monitor.
Cognac is recommended to use for the prevention of cardiovascular disease, but you need to find the right dosage, otherwise the effect will be counterproductive. High blood pressure should follow a daily dose of 30-70 mg, the people with arterial hypotension, the dose should be increased to 80-100 mg.
As part of the cognac has tannins, which are not found in other alcoholic beverages. They contribute to the expansion of blood vessels. Included in the fusel oil and ethanol in large quantities, can have a negative effect on many organs - kidneys, liver. The central nervous system under the influence of alcohol changes its usual function. Incorrect operation of these systems and organs may adversely affect the heart.
In order to avoid adverse health effects before consumption of cognac as a preventive measure should consult a doctor. It is desirable to pre-check the status of kidney, liver and heart.
Doctors rarely recommend cognac as a preventive measure, because they fear that people will begin to use medical advice to justify the excessive use of alcohol. Remember that the therapeutic effect is observed only when using alcoholic beverages in small doses. With a large number of alcohol have a negative effect greater than the therapeutic and the risk of addiction.
Blood pressure readings in humans depend on many factors. They are influenced by age, sex, state of health, nutrition, lifestyle, bad habits. The human body can react to the use of alcohol alone.
Before starting a preventive course better to test the reaction of the organism. For this purpose we measure the pressure readings to alcohol intake. Then again measured after 30 minutes. Depending on how the parameters have changed, you should decide whether the use of alcohol for the treatment of cardiovascular disorders.
Apply brandy for the normalization of vascular disorders in various ways. Fasting is recommended to take 1 tbsp. l. or separate reception 3 times during the day for 30 minutes before eating. Gipotonikam suggest adding a small amount of alcohol in your tea or coffee.
Taking brandy and can be a part of medicinal tinctures. There are different recipes: cinnamon, honey, calendula, ginseng, celery, cranberry, rosehip. Some of them advise hypotension, others - for hypertension.
It is believed that red wine raises the pressure, and white - lowers it. Wine on the human body has the same effect as other alcohol. First, due to the expansion vessel pressure decreases, then after the acceleration is increased heart rate.
In small doses of red wine at a low pressure raises the performance, which is why the person feels better. Opinions of physicians about the safety of wine reception for therapeutic purposes is ambiguous, ie. A. Immediately after drinking hypotensive condition could deteriorate. When receiving the blame for the decrease in pressure should it increase, and doctors believe that such differences of indicators bad for the condition of people with vascular pathologies.
High blood pressure are advised not to drink alcohol, in Vol. H. and wine, so as not had a hypertensive crisis. But in small doses it is considered safe wine reception. The allowable number for women - 100 ml for men - 150 ml.
At hit of vodka in the human body mechanism of action is similar to other types of alcohol. After a brief pressure reduction begins its increase. The more people drink vodka, the more the pressure increases. Therefore, hypertensive patients is not recommended to use vodka. The negative effect on the cardiovascular system may persist for 2-3 days after consumption of alcohol.
Despite the fact that vodka increases the pressure, doctors advise gipotonikam treated liquor. The negative consequences of alcohol exceeds a positive effect in the long term lead to disturbances in the body.
Unlike wine, vodka and cognac beer - alcoholic drink. After its use vessels dilate and the pressure decreases. Therefore gipotonikam not recommend this drink, t. To. The pressure will drop after drinking more, which will lead to a deterioration.
After 6-8 hours, the pressure is returned to its original state, and often figures even higher than those that came before drinking beer. Therefore, hypertensive this drink is also not recommended - despite a temporary improvement, then they may become worse. Such strong differences indicators are harmful even for healthy people.
Use of champagne a dose of 150 ml can lower blood pressure by 10-15 mm Hg. Art. Similarly acts whiskey at a dose of 50-70 ml. At doses exceeding the pressure rises to 30 mm Hg. Art.
If you drink whiskey often occurs addictive, and the pressure change is not as significant. Periodically hypertensive patients with a deterioration state of use whiskey as possible but not more than 1 time per week in a dose not exceeding 70 ml. It is not necessary in this case to mix it with cola, which is a common way of whiskey drinking. Carbon dioxide, which is contained in the stake, has a negative impact on the gastric mucosa. There are various recipes for liqueurs and whiskey, which includes herbs and berries.
People with arterial hypotension is not recommended for whiskey and champagne, t. To. There is a high probability that their condition worsens.
