Blood Pressure

  • Eating a low GI(Glycemic Index)diet keeps both cholesterol and blood pressure low.
  • Avoid salt and load up on omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and linseed.
  • Mild, tender black beans are packed with heart-healthy nutrients including folate, antioxidants, magnesium, and fiber -- which helps control both cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
  • olives, is especially rich in heart-healthy antioxidants called polyphenols, as well as healthy monounsaturated fats. When olive oil replaces saturated fat (like butter), it can help lower cholesterol levels. Polyphenols may protect blood vessels.
  • The mineral magnesium lowers blood pressure,so take a multivitamin that gives at least 150mg of magnesium-you'll need twice as much if you have high blood pressure.
  • Keep fit wit atleast 15minutes of aerobic exercise or brisk walk everyday.
