8 Foods That Lower Blood Pressure Naturally


Eating is an important part of a healthy life. Did you know that every two minutes, one person
dies because of cardiovascular disease? Behind these numbers, there hides an insidious
disease that many times doesn’t show itself: hypertension. That’s why measuring your blood pressure is
a good habit to pick up on. If you notice any differences, talk to a doctor. According to the American Heart Association,
the limit of a normal blood pressure is 120/80. The interval between 120/80 – 140/90 is seen
as “pre-hypertension”. A single high result doesn’t mean you have
hypertension. However, if the results over 140/90 are constant,
you should go to the doctor to investigate further. Do you know what causes high blood pressure? While the exact cause of this disease is unknown,
there are evidences that excessive consumption of salt, alcohol, smoking, processed foods,
lack of physical activities, and genetic disposition might be contributing factors. And if that’s not enough, hypertension is
also the cause of many diseases, such as diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, kidney failure, and
others. If you suffer from high blood pressure, you
came to the right place! In today’s video, we will show you 8 foods
that you must include in your diet if you want to normalize your blood pressure. 1. Banana
