4 recommendations to reduce blood pressurePosted on Feb 07,2017
If you suffer from hypertension you know that it is essential to control it and live a healthy life. But exactly, how can we reduce high blood pressure? We give you 4 tips to reduce it:
#1. Reduce salt intake
It is known that salt increases blood pressure, so avoid taking it. If you find it hard to get used to eating without salt and everything tastes bland, do not worry, you can season your dishes with some spices, such as basil, ginger or oregano. In addition, you can use garlic or onion to make your dishes taste exquisite, even without salt.
#2. Eat fibre: make fruit and vegetables your best allies
Various studies on high blood pressure have shown that fibre consumption reduces blood pressure. It is therefore ideal to eat fibre-containing foods, such as fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
Although it may sound cliché, exercise is intrinsically related to health. Even more, it is known that walking for 20 minutes a day has a positive effect on blood pressure. For those whose health allows, it is advisable to perform 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3 or 4 times a week.
#4. Measure blood pressure values daily
It is essential to keep a daily record of blood pressure. It is best to take it at the same time each day. Over time, we can see if we can lower blood pressure, or at least maintain it.
