Blood Pressure



When diagnosed with high blood pressure, most individuals are given strict orders to improve their diet and start exercising. When blood pressure is very high, the doctor may wish to start the patient on blood pressure-lowering medications. While eating healthy can help lower blood pressure over time, there are specific foods you can eat that will target high blood pressure and may quickly reverse the condition. Eating these foods will have the added benefit of aiding in weight loss, which in turn, will help lower blood pressure as well:

WHOLE GRAINS (oatmeal, oat bran muffins); LOW-FAT DAIRY (skim milk, fat-free yogurt); SPINACH (fresh, prepackaged or frozen); NUTS, SEEDS, & BEANS (edamame, soybeans, unsalted sunflower seeds); BANANAS (add to smoothies or to grain toast & peanut butter); BAKED POTATOES (use a little low-fat sour cream); DARK CHOCOLATE (small amount); SALMON (high in protein & vitamin D); GREEN TEA (high in antioxidants); AVOCADOS (high in antioxidants, B6, magnesium, folic acid)
