Eating Healthy For Lower Blood Pressure

Great diet changes to lower blood pressure.

I’m Heart Healthy Henry and I’m going to go over some great ways you can change your diet to get lower blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a condition that plagues many of us. In order to achieve lower blood pressure, we must first change the fuel that we put into our bodies. If you’re suffering from high blood pressure and you’d like lower blood pressure, follow these diet tips.

Reduce Sodium for Lower Blood Pressure

Salt may make your food taste great, but it’s horrible for your blood pressure. I’ve seen people put salt on everything from French fries to believe it or not -- cereal. Now there’s absolutely no need to season every single thing you eat with salt. In fact, many of the foods we eat today already have too much salt in them.

If you’re just a die-hard salt addict, try weaning yourself off of it. There are also a number of salt substitutes available on the market. Try one of those instead of using regular table salt to season your food.

Reduce Fat for Lower Blood Pressure

Fat is just as bad for lower blood pressure as sodium is. If you have high blood pressure, avoiding foods that are high in fats, especially trans fats, is extremely important. Too many fats are bad for your weight (which also contributes to higher blood pressure) and your overall health.

Reduce Cholesterol for Lower Blood Pressure

LDL Cholesterol is extremely bad for high blood pressure so if you want to lower you blood pressure avoid foods with this cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the cholesterol that can actually deposit plaque on the walls of your arteries. HDL cholesterol on the other hand is good for you and actually helps your body rid itself of the LDL cholesterol.

Take Supplements for Lower Blood Pressure

Taking supplements will help lower blood pressure too. Supplements such as the one at are great for helping reduce the cholesterol levels in your body and lowering your blood pressure levels.

While lower blood pressure may require a bit of work and a bit of restraint, it is most definitely worth it in the long run.
