Best Foods For High Blood Pressure | Healthy Recipes

The heart pumps the blood through the arteries to various parts of the body. For a smooth blood flow, a certain amount of pressure is exerted by the blood on the arterial walls. The normal pressure is 120/80 mm of Hg. When the pressure goes above this limit and stays high for a long period of time, it is called high blood pressure or hypertension.

    2. hi everyone ,if anyone else wants to discover normal blood pressure range
      for women try Nevolly Overcome BP Nerd (Have a quick look on google cant
      remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and
      my partner got cool results with it.

    1. +Sara Mushtaq I was diagnosed with hypertension – high blood pressure – and
      advised to cut out salt altogether. Not easy but stopped adding salt at all
      and NO package foods/jars (except for Miso). My blood pressure went down 20
      points in 5 days. So cut way down on the sodium and leave out the rock salt
      in this vid. ALL salt is SALT. You quickly get used to the taste of not
      adding it.

  1. first,i think you speak very well.i want to say thank you for all healthy
    foods and recipes that you have shared with us.you are very informative and
    your foods looks great.thank you,again.

  2. Individuals diagnosed with hypertension are often advised to avoid milk and
    dairy foods. This is because milk and dairy foods are commonly suggested to
    be high in saturated fat which is linked to high blood cholesterol and
    cardiovascular disease for (which high blood pressure is a risk factor).

  3. Any one tried the Hybetez Remedy (google search it)? I have noticed several
    amazing things about this popular cholesterol home remedy.
