Stop Blood Pressure Highs and Lows

Blood pressure depends on two main factors.

One – How forcefully the blood is pumped around your body and heart.

Two – How narrowed or relaxed your arteries are.

The worst case scenario is that you have narrow arteries with a strong blood flow and it can lead to hypertension. So try these Blood pressure friendly foods to help relax yourself.

Have a Banana or two

Potassium is vital to retaining low blood pressure and bananas are rich with it. When potassium is low, the body counters this by holding onto sodium because they are very familiar chemically and this will lead to high blood pressure. When potassium levels are high it removes sodium, therefore reducing blood pressure. Banana on toast will do the trick.

Pop Eyes Spinach

This annual plant that is grown in Asia is absolutely loaded in magnesium and folate that are very helpful in lowering blood pressure.

Slim Skimmed Milk

Skimmed milk is high in vitamin D and calcium, which can help blood pressure levels by around 4-11 %. Just simply have some chocolate with a nice cup of hot milk.


Omega 3 has been shown to stop and even reverse angina (Chest pain and tightness, caused when arteries that supply the heart are restricted). Sardines and fresh tomatoes are the perfect match, add a little ground pepper.

Stalky Celery

Celery is one of the most important ones in this list as actually relaxes the muscles and works as a diuretic hence lowering blood pressure and enhancing blood flow. It’s also meant to be an aphrodisiac but I will write an article on that to come. Try celery with some cheese if you can’t stand the taste by its self.
