      Foods that lower blood pressure

      Blood pressure is the amount of pressure exerted by blood against the artery walls. High blood pressure is a condition when this pressure goes over the normal limit and over a period of time leads to Heart DiseaseKidney Disease, stroke, and other problems. Here are some foods that help in bringing down high blood pressure.

      Berries

      Various berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are rich in flavonoids that help lower blood pressure. You can just add them on to your cereal or granola or have them as a healthy dessert.

      Oats

      Oats are not just a great way to start your day, they are a high-fiber, low-fat, and low-sodium method to reduce blood pressure.

      Pomegranates

      Drink a cup of pomegranate juice once a day for four weeks and you are bound to see a drop in blood pressure. However, stay wary when you buy store-bought juices as they may contain added sugar or additives that may nullify the positive effects.

      Pistachios

      A diet that has even just one serving of pistachios a day has been shown to reduce blood pressure. However, ensure it’s plain pistachios.

      Olive oil

      Olive oil is rich in polyphenols which are basically inflammation fighting compounds that reduce blood pressure.

      Bananas

      These are rich in potassium and this is good to keep blood pressure within check.

      Fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids

      Fatty fish like mackerel and salmon are high in omega-3 fatty acids and these are known to reduce blood pressure, inflammation, and triglycerides. 

      Garlic and herbs

      Garlic increases the levels of nitric oxide in the body and this makes the arteries widen, reducing blood pressure. When you incorporate flavorful herbs into your cooking, you can use these to reduce your sodium intake.

      Red beets

      Like garlic, red beets too are high in nitric oxide and help reduce blood pressure. Research shows that these can bring down blood pressure in just 24 hours.
