How to Manage High Blood Pressure

Regular consumption of fruits and vegetables will help you reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The reason hides in the anti-inflammatory effects of the group of phytonutrients called anthocyanins.

Lower your salt intake. “Dietary salt intake reduction can delay or prevent the incidence of antihypertensive therapy, can facilitate blood pressure reduction in hypertensive patients receiving medical therapy, and may represent a simple cost-saving mediator to reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality ,” one study from 2012 concluded.

You can also use other things which are much more beneficial for your health , such as nutritional yeast (which adds a nice cheesy flavor) and turmeric in order to avoid salt.

Exercise can’t be stressed enough.
Exercise is a cornerstone therapy for the prevention, treatment and control of hypertension.
