Foods that Lower Blood Pressure

High blood pressure can cause many serious health issues. Food can be one of the biggest catalysts for either raising or lowering your blood pressure. Here are some suggestions on foods to add into your diet if you want to lower your blood pressure.

Spinach

Spinach is full of magnesium, which helps to lower and maintain a healthy blood pressure level. The potassium in Spinach will also help keep you healthy and your blood pressure low.

Bananas

It was mentioned above that potassium will help keep you healthy. Here's why- when your body's potassium levels are too low, it retains sodium. If your body has too high of a sodium level, it'll raise your blood pressure. Getting plenty of potassium will help keep your body balanced.

Dark Chocolate

Studies have shown that about 30 calories a day of dark chocolate can help lower your blood pressure. However, if you eat too much dark chocolate, it can lead to weight gain and other blood pressure raising effects, so you'll have to be careful not to overdo it.

Skim Milk

The combination of calcium and vitamin D in skim milk helps to significantly lower your blood pressure. Drinking skim milk daily can lower your risk for heart disease by as much as 15%.

Broccoli

Broccoli is full of minerals and fiber. A high-fiber diet has been linked to reduced blood pressure, and all the nutrients in broccoli will help to keep your body healthy. Other high-fiber vegetables include beans, carrots, cauliflower, corn, green beans, green peas, greens, legumes, peas, and potatoes with skin.

Fish

Fish is a great source of lean protein, and is also full of nutritious omega 3 fatty acids. Try eating fish like salmon, halibut, or cod.

Whole Grains 

Whole Grains are a healthy alternative to refined carbohydrates. Try replacing your bread, rice, and pasta with heart-healthy whole wheat alternatives.

Oatmeal and black eyed peas are rich in magnesium. They are good for lowering blood pressure too :-)
