Diet Guidelines to Lower Blood Pressure

1. Reduce Sodium and Salt Intake

Lowering the amount of sodium in your diet will help to reduce blood pressure levels. Sodium is an essential mineral, but Americans consume 2-3 times more, per day, than the recommended daily limit for sodium (for most people) of 2,400 milligrams per day. Remember: one teaspoon of salt contains a massive 2,300 milligrams of sodium! So reduce your intake of salt and go easy on processed foods like cured and smoked meats, canned soups, stock/bouillion cubes, as these foods often have a high sodium content.

2. Buy Lower-Sodium Foods and Brands

Buy foods with a lower-sodium content, like those labeled low-sodium, very low sodium, or salt-free. Watch out for any ingredient on the food label with the word "sodium" in it, such as disodium phosphate, monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium benzoate, sodium hydroxide, sodium nitrite, sodium proprionate, and sodium sulfate.

3. Eat More Potassium-Rich Foods

Sodium and potassium work in harmony. Studies show that people who consume more potassium have lower blood pressure. Foods rich in potassium include many fruits, such as: cantaloupe, bananas, oranges/ orange juice and watermelon. Also vegetables like: potatoes, spinach, and zucchini.

4. Recommended Diet to Lower Blood Pressure

A recommended diet for the reduction of raised blood pressure (hypertension) is the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. See Dash Diet

Advice on Diets

Special diets or diet plans with special diet foods are sometimes needed for particular health conditions. Ask your doctor, dietitian or nutritionist about your personal dietary needs. Otherwise, a balanced diet program containing foods from all the nutritional food groups is best.
