The DASH (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) diet is one method. This diet aims to reduce high blood pressure by reducing your intake of fat, sodium, and alcohol. If you’re looking to reduce your blood pressure, this diet also recommends eating foods that are rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
The DASH diet also recommends introducing more low-fat protein into your diet, as well as whole grains and lots of fruits and vegetables. This includes leafy greens, potatoes, beets, and fruits like berries and bananas. Drinking skim milk is another way to reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure as well. Eating oatmeal at breakfast is also a good start!
