Just found and started taking Blackmores Omega Memo â€“ this stuff is a concentrated Omega-3 nutritional oil capsule containing 500 mg DHA. DHA being the most important Omega related to â€œgoodâ€ cholesterols. It is supposed to increase the level of good cholesterols while decreasing the bad, while also thinning the blood, and reducing the blood pressure. I find that I can reduce the Valsartan from 240 mg/day to 160mg/day and my blood pressure is running about 120/60 all day. Before I had to take 3000 mg standard fish oil to get the same 600 mg DHA â€“ too much daily consumption of oil for the same benefit.
So my pill regiment has become : 160mg Valsartan, baby aspirin, 1/8 Cialis tab, and 3 squares of 73% Coco after a large Oatmeal breakfast â€“ then a 1000mg Omega Memo after dinner â€“ this combination has been keeping my BP almost steady at 120/60 all day and also allowed me to eliminate the Plavix I was taking for blood thinning. Of course the 2 mile/day walking work-out has a lot to do with the equation too. Donâ€™t forget the exercise.
Now my monthly cost is running about 1000 Baht (US $31/mo. ) for all my meds. Far cry from where I started out in this nightmare being told I had 5 blocked artery’s and needed 800,000 Baht (US $25,000) operations and would need to take roughly 4,000 Baht/mo. (US $125) meds for the rest of my life. I supposed if I had insurance â€“ well I donâ€™t. God Bless.
At the end of Sept I will once again check my cholesterol levels and kidney functions to make sure everything is still on track â€“ but so far I feel great and that should be the best indicator. Although this combination is working for me, I have just talked to a friend that the Blackmores product didnâ€™t work for him â€“ so I put this up here to show a example of what could work - I have done numerous trials and checks to determine what is working best for me and Iâ€™m just hoping my experience can benefit others.
