Pressure on the walls of the blood vessels exerted by the circulating blood in the body is known as BP or blood pressure. Abnormal blood pressure is a silent disease. It is very common and over 1/3rd of the population have it but are unaware of it.

Readings above the range of 140/90 mmHG detects high blood pressure or hypertension. If this is not controlled then it can lead to ASCVD (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease), such as heart attack and stroke. To avoid such circumstances visit your healthcare specialist who will prescribe you with blood pressure medication and lifestyle changes. Apart from that, here is a list of 7 food items that can help you overcome high blood pressure naturally:

  • Dark Chocolates

The nitric oxide found in dark chocolate helps in dilating the blood vessels and decreasing blood pressure. Also  flavanol  in cocoa is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

  • Whole Grains

whole grains like wheat, finger millet  have more fiber and nutrients than do refined grains. Grains are naturally low in fat. Consuming whole grains every day can help reduce the level of “bad cholesterol” in the body.

  • Beetroot

The nitric oxide found in beetroot helps in dilating the blood vessels and decreasing blood pressure.

  • Fish

Fatty fishes are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which have shown a small reduction in blood pressure.

  •  Green Leafy Vegetables

The nitric oxide found in green leafy vegetables helps in dilating the blood vessels and decreasing blood pressure.

  •   Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are the pigment that gives blueberries. It  can reduce the stiffness in the arteries and lowers the blood pressure.

  •   Skim milk and yogurt

Skim milk is an excellent source of calcium and is low in fat. These are both important elements of a diet for lowering blood pressure.
