Health Tip to Reduce Hypertension
A healthy diet can both reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure and lower an already elevated blood pressure. Hypertension can be reduced by an eating plan that emphasizes fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy foods. The diet should include whole grains, poultry, fish and nuts and have reduced amounts of fats, red meats, sweets, and sugar sweetened beverages. A key to healthy eating is choosing foods containing less salt and sodium.
