Hi Mcture, the latest news is: beet juice, which is proven to lower bp. I don't recall how much or how often you'd need to drink it though. Also, don't overdo it, cuz it can mess up your kidneys in high doses. Please google various sites, & don't buy the beet powder, ect. (I just buy a low sodium can of beets, drink the juice in can...& eat the beets). They're .49 cents (or .79 cents for low sodium) per can here. Hope u give it a try.👍

Hibiscus tea, green leafy veggies, cut down or omit added salt and all salted foods, fruit, Rainbow veggies and fruit.

Hibiscus tea CAN act so quickly that meds may need to be adjusted. All the Celestial Seasons ZINGER teas are based on Hibiscus tea.
Reduce caffeine.
Dairy foods.
Google DASH Diet. All the good stuff about DASH is free online.

Yes, celestial teas are wonderful. I love them. Dash diet and the Mediterranean diet is good too.

Oh yeah, forgot about parsley. My grandma used to make a tea out of parsley to lower her BP.

Just try to eat fresh, healthy foods. That will be good for everything, not just your BP.

Parsely.
Not too much.
Research and check with doctor or pharmacist to see if it is compatible with BP meds. Or anything like Coumadin or Eloquis-might be contraindicated.

Use as a food, not a treatment for high B/P.

My Dad had to cut out canned foods. Too much salt. Ham and bacon was a no no. 1 oz of Cheese is 174 mg. Bagels have 430mg. That would also cover processed luncheon meat. The average person should not have more than 2000 mg daily. That is about a teaspoon. Someone with BP problems should probably have less than that. I remember Mom eating pepperoni. I told her worst thing for her blood pressure.

I would say cook as fresh as you can. Watch the labels for salt content. If u need to buy canned, get low salt.
