The method of Yulian drink is very simple. As long as the corn silk and lotus heart are boiled together and used as a tea, it can clear away heat, detoxify, and soothe the nerves. Corn silk has the effect of reducing water and swelling, venting heat, and calming the liver and gallbladder. It strengthens the heart, dilates blood vessels, and lowers blood pressure.

Let the blood pressure drop.
Although the blood pressure will rise a little when singing high, the blood pressure will drop after singing. So people with high blood pressure can sing more to help lower blood pressure.
