Asafoetida is a natural blood thinner known to help lower blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels. Adding a pinch to your daily meals can help manage high blood pressure.
Diets high in salt (sodium) may lead to a stiffening & hardening of blood vessels & high blood pressure. Watch & limit your intake to improve your overall health!
Potassium reverses the effects of sodium. Higher potassium intake can lead to sodium loss via urination, easing of blood vessel wall tension and subsequent lowering of blood pressure. Mushrooms, bananas, and potatoes are delicious rich sources of potassium!
Obesity increases your high blood pressure risk. Losing weight may help control BP – generally, blood pressure may go down by about 1 millimeter of mercury (mm Hg) with approximately every 2.2 pounds lost.
Regularly checking your blood pressure levels will help you make mindful lifestyle choices to manage high blood pressure. Home BP monitors are widely available without a prescription.
