The way we eat has a significant impact on all chemical processes in our body, including the blood pressure. Fortunately, the food which is useful for our heart is quite acceptable and tasty. Below I offer you some advice on how to choose the right food and forget about hypertension:
First of all, make your own eating plan. To avoid problems with high blood pressure, try to exclude from your diet, some fats, cholesterol, sweets and even soft drinks and eat many fruits and vegetables. Also include in your diet fish, poultry and nuts. This food will provide your body with the necessary substances – magnesium, sodium, calcium and protein – all that is necessary to fight with hypertension.
Besides, if it’s possible, try to exclude salt. Some researches say that excluding salt from your diet can help you to cope with high blood pressure.
The right diet will help you to cope with hypertension. So follow the doctor’s advice.
It is considered that to cope with hypertension there must be a balance between sodium and potassium. You eat products that contain too much sodium. And if you have a high blood pressure, the medicine you take remove potassium from the body. So, you need to remain a balance. But, don’t take any drugs, as too much potassium can’t be useful. Eat fruits and vegetables that contain it. For example, bananas.
If you have high blood pressure, give up drinking coffee. Some people say that caffeine doesn’t have a negative influence on us. But, from my own experience, I must say that it has. Better give it up, at least for a short period of time.
Give up smoking as it has a huge impact on your vessels. If you are a smoker you must choose between cigarettes and your health. If the last is more important for you, then forget about this bad habit.
And in general, if you have a hypertension, you should completely change your lifestyle. Lead a healthy lifestyle and you will cope with most of your health problems including high blood pressure.
