A favorite on everyone’s lists, garlic (Allium sativum) has always shown incredible benefits to the human heart. The compound allicin helps to relax the muscles of the heart and widens the muscles of the heart (vasodilatation). The antioxidant effects are excellent for lowering inflammation and raising the body’s production of nitric oxide.
2. Green Tea :
Unfermented green tea (Camellia sinensis) lowers your risk of developing hypertension in the first place and many studies have linked it to brain health, heart health, and one way to lower your individual risk of cancer.
3.Dark Chocolate :
Dark Chocolate is a Sweet Solution to Reduce Blood Pressure,During the past several years, the body of research on cocoa and dark chocolate has been building, and the latest studies have shown that the darkest confections are foods that lower high blood pressure. My favorite brand of dark chocolate is Chocolove, a premium Belgian chocolate sold online and in select natural foods stores, including Whole Foods Markets. Chocolove products have a high cocoa content, but their “strong dark” bar with 70 percent cocoa provides the best balance between taste and health benefits. I eat dark chocolate at least once a week, but no more than one ounce at a time, savored slowly. However, if you are sugar sensitive, you should not eat any form of chocolate.
4.Celery Reduces Blood Pressure With Apigenin :
Celery, celery extract and celery oil all contain apigenin, which relaxes blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. Consuming four stalks of celery per day, eight teaspoons of celery juice three times daily, or an equivalent amount in the form of supplemental celery seed extract (1,000 mg twice a day) or oil (one-half to one teaspoon three times daily in tincture form) provides a natural remedy for high blood pressure.
5. Beans :
Beans contain multiple nutrients that aid in the reduction and regulation of blood pressure.
All beans contain soluble fiber, potassium, and magnesium. The combination of these nutrients allows your body to pass sodium faster, cleans your blood vessels, and keeps your bowel movements regular.
6. Low-Fat Dairy :
Compared to high-fat dairies, low-fat dairies contain calcium and vitamin D which have been known to help reduce blood pressure. They also form milk peptides, which help aid in heart health, when they are digested.
Bananas are good for you for a large number of reasons. These are a healthy source of energy,
they are convenient and they are packed with beneficial nutrition. But they’re also one of the richest sources of potassium available, which means that they can help you to combat cramps and also reduce high blood pressure directly.
As an added bonus, bananas can have a knock-on effect by improving sleep. Because they reduce cramping during the night, they can prevent you waking up. And when you are better rested, your blood pressure will be lower.
Berries are a fantastic source of vitamin C, which as we have seen has a lot of benefits. Not only does vitamin C help to combat the free radicals that can otherwise attack and damage the system to raise blood pressure and threaten the immune system, but it can also improve serotonin.
Something to note is that serotonin eventually converts into melatonin – the sleep hormone. This is another great way to increase relaxation and to generally feel great.
9. Green Vegetables :
Green vegetables have a number of very positive effects on the body and especially when it comes to hypertension. For one, green vegetables are very often great sources of calcium and magnesium. Broccoli is a good example.
Another big benefit is that green vegetables are a good source of inositol. Inositol is another effective nutrient for relaxing the body and is one of the best foods out there for combating stress.
