Jacket potatoes – not a very delicious dish, but in fact it is rich in potassium and magnesium which normalizes blood pressure. In addition, the potato medium size only 150-160 calories. Bake or boil unpeeled potatoes and eat, watering sour cream or natural yoghurt, – a double benefit for the body!
Those who include in the daily diet of 1 serving of dairy products, 11% reduced risk of developing hypertension compared to those who only from time to time eating yogurt. Start the day with a serving of cereal with milk, low-fat yogurt with fruit or make a smoothie.
Australian research has shown that products containing natural cocoa powder, can reduce the pressure because flavonoids improve vascular condition. At Harvard studied the properties of chocolate and also came to the conclusion that it is beneficial for people with high blood pressure. Chocolate – product high in calories, so limit serving 20 g or 1 tbsp cocoa.
Legumes are rich in fiber, magnesium and potassium, and all these elements help to maintain an optimal pressure level. If every day you eat beans, peas or lentils, you can decrease rate of 3-5 points. Add legumes to soups, stews, salads and rolls.
Even if you don’t limit yourself in salt, bananas are quite capable to minimize its harmful effects. Adults need 4.7 g of potassium per day, one banana contains approximately 12% of the norm. In the morning add a banana in my cereal or cut it into slices and freeze for a delicious dessert.
