Hello I understand ur concern, Your diet plays a big role in whether you have high or normal blood pressure. Dietary recommendations for lowering blood pressure, such as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, include reducing your intake of fat, sodium, and alcohol. The DASH guidelines also suggest eating more foods rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium. In general, you should eat more low-fat protein sources, whole grains, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. The following slides present some of the best foods you can eat to lower your blood pressure. Foods high in potassium give you a better ratio of potassium to sodium. This allows your kidneys to get rid of more sodium through your urine, which lowers your blood pressure. Leafy greens such as romaine lettuce, arugula, kale, turnip greens, collard greens, and spinach are high in potassium. Opt for fresh or frozen greens because canned vegetables often have added sodium. Frozen vegetables contain as many nutrients as fresh vegetables and they are easy to store.
