Non alcoholic drink and blood pressure

2 replies 121 views
I've looked on the net but not found anything. I like my wine, etc at night time.  If I was to change to non alcohol drinks, does this impact the BP when drunk in moderation?
I'd be grateful for links and/or help from an expert if possible or advice that was given to a fM here by a doctor, etc.
If you are nice to me then I'll be extra nice to you :)

    I don't see why non-alcoholic drinks would impact blood pressure, most of them are variations on sparkling juice. I wouldn't expect them to have any more affect than a glass of lemonade or fruit juice. 
    I would be wary of caffeinated drinks, as I think the caffeine has an association, so would avoid cola for example. 

    If blood pressure is a concern have a look at the UK Blood pressure association website, lots of info on there about dietary/lifestyle changes that can improve it. I have found it very helpful in the past.

    Is your blood pressure high?  Do you drink alcohol every evening?  Cutting that down will definitely be good for your health if so.
