5 Foods That Reduces Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure which causes stroke,
hypertension and heart attack is quite prevalent in the society today
because of anxiety and overthinking. But do you know that there are some
foods that you can eat to lower blood pressure? 


Jumia Food shares some of these foods.

Milk
A
daily dose of a cold glass of milk offers a solid serving of both
calcium and vitamin D, nutrients that work as a team to help lower blood
pressure by 3 to 10 percent.
Eggs
Egg
whites can help reduce blood pressure as it is a solid source of
protein, vitamin D, and other healthy nutrients. These nutrients can
effectively counter high BP and take it down to a minimal level.
Bananas
Eating
foods that are rich in potassium is better than taking supplements.
Slice a banana into your cereal or oatmeal for a potassium-rich
addition. You can also take one to go along with a boiled egg for a
quick breakfast or snack.
Dark chocolate
Dark
chocolate is rich in antioxidants called flavanols, which make blood
vessels more elastic. Eat a bar of chocolate every day and make sure it
contains at least 70 percent cocoa.
Olive oil
Olive
oil is an example of a healthy fat. It contains polyphenols, which are
inflammation-fighting compounds that can help reduce blood pressure.
