7 Delicious Foods to Help You Avoid High Blood Pressure

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s estimated more than 100 million Americans have high blood pressure. This is a shocking statistic considering high blood pressure, also called the silent killer, has no obvious symptoms but can result in death. 

Fortunately, getting your blood pressure to a healthy level can be as simple as changing the way you eat. By following a high blood pressure diet you can lower your blood pressure and reduce your risks of hypertension-related health conditions

If you are struggling with high blood pressure and are looking for a natural solution, here are several delicious foods that can help you lower your blood pressure.

1. Spinach

Dark, leafy greens like spinach are ideal for lowering your high blood pressure. Spinach contains potassium, a nutrient that helps you flush out the sodium in your body through your urine. Add spinach to your salads, breakfast omelets, or your smoothies for a healthy boost to your system.

2. Salmon

If you want to lower your high blood pressure, consider adding salmon to your diet. Salmon is a fatty fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential for reducing blood pressure as well as reducing inflammation and your risk of heart disease.

3. Blueberries

If you want to maintain a healthy diet, eat plenty of blueberries. These small, sweet berries are high in healthy antioxidants and flavonoids. These nutrients can lower your blood pressure and reduce your risk of hypertension.  

4. Oats

Heart-healthy oats are another delicious food to add to your high blood pressure diet. Oats are low in sodium and low in fat while being high in a fiber called beta-glucan. This type of fiber can lower your blood cholesterol levels as well as your blood pressure.

5. Dark Chocolate

While you might think of dark chocolate as a delicious treat, dark chocolate contains many healthy nutrients. Dark chocolate can lower your blood pressure as well as your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. You can supercharge the benefits of dark chocolate by eating it with berries for a healthy dessert. 

6. Apricots

Apricots are one of the fruits that can reduce your risk of developing hypertension. These small fruits are packed with fiber, vitamin C, and blood pressure-lowering beta-carotene. Add them to your salads or eat them as-is for a healthy snack. 

7. Eggs

A high-protein diet can naturally lower your blood pressure and eggs are a great source of healthy protein. The protein in eggs helps improve your blood pressure and cholesterol while keeping you full and satisfied for a long period. As a bonus, adding eggs to your diet will also promote weight loss. 

Manage Your Blood Pressure With a High Blood Pressure Diet

A high blood pressure diet is not only delicious but also good for your overall health. 

You can naturally manage your high blood pressure by eating plenty of dark, leafy greens, berries, fatty fish, fruits, eggs, and healthy whole grains. You can even indulge your sweet tooth by having dark chocolate. 

Eating these foods will help you maintain your blood pressure as well as your overall health.
