Foods which Help Lower Blood Pressure


There are many foods which are shown to help lower blood pressure. Be sure to include these in your healthy diet!

GARLIC
Both garlic and onions are shown to have healthy effects on blood pressure. Who cares what your breath smells like afterward! You're more healthy, that's what counts :) Add garlic to your pizza, mix it into your tomato sauce, and enjoy!

GINGER
Ginger soothes a rough tummy, it tastes really good, and it helps with blood pressure. Add some sliced ginger on top of your salad, and enjoy a nice ginger tea.

POTASSIUM
Bananas are famous for their potassium, but you also get great potassium from pistachio nuts. Get the unshelled variety - they're much easier to eat!

VITAMIN C
Orange juice is well known for its C - get the fiber rich variety so you get all the healthy bits as well!

VITAMIN E
Almonds and spinach are top items in the Vitamin E category. Add both into your next salad!

MAGNESIUM
Again spinach and almonds are key here. If you're not fans of those items, make sure you take a multivitamin every day! Your body can't function well without the US RDA components - that's the whole reason they are RDA :) Get those vitamins into you daily.


If you have high blood pressure, then there are also foods you need to stay away from! Make sure you weed these out of your diet!

CAFFEINE
If you've gotten really fond of tea or coffee, switch to a decaf variety. That will give you the same flavors without the jolt to your blood system. Note that some people feel that green tea has no caffeine. Green tea DOES have caffeine in it - just lower amounts. So work your way over to herbal tea.

SALT
We've all heard it by now - you need to have lower salt intakes to have a healthy life. Cut back on high salt items. Play with other spice combinations to see what will soothe you while you get over your salt cravings. They will fade with time!

TRANS FATTY ACIDS
Trans fatty acids are bad for you in so many ways! Just avoid these completely. Totally.

Good luck with your blood pressure maintenance!
