High blood pressure is a condition that can affect your body, potentially causing heart attacks and strokes, and can be caused by genetics.
If you have high blood pressure, chances are your doctor has suggested ways to lower it, such as developing exercise routines and changing what you eat and drink.
It is possible to reduce your blood pressure. However, in order to reduce your risk, you must adhere to specific dietary guidelines.
"The DASH Diet recommends four to five servings of vegetables per day," says Goodson. "Vegetables are high in nutrients and low in sodium, which is a common cause of high blood pressure and thus poor blood circulation."
1. Fruits and vegetables
Eating potassium-rich foods is one of the DASH Diet's recommendations. Fruits such as Medjool dates, bananas, berries, and avocado are examples.
According to the DASH Diet, calcium may also help lower blood pressure and improve circulation. It is recommended that you consume three servings of low-fat dairy per day to help provide you with the calcium you require.
3. Low-fat dairy products
Whole grains are high in dietary fibre, which is important for lowering cholesterol and regulating blood sugar levels.
