A healthy diet is one of the most effective ways to prevent blood pressure from reaching dangerously high levels. 

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of hypertension, but there is one vegetable that can be considered a true ‘superfood’ when it comes to lowering blood pressure.

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is an extremely dangerous pathology that can cause a heart attack or stroke. They call it the silent killer for the total absence of specific symptoms.

The diet has a strong effect on blood pressure. Some foods, especially those high in salt and saturated fat, can cause a spike. However, other foods can reduce it, lowering the risk of serious complications and improving heart health.

For example, one of these foods is a vegetable that is readily available, inexpensive and is also known for its rich flavor. It’s about Beetroot.

This vegetable is very healthy because it is rich in substances that relax blood vessels and allow blood to circulate better throughout the body.

Make yourself a juice, cut it into salads, add it to smoothies or rice; no matter how the benefits are the same.

Raw beets contain most of these beneficial substances, so it is considered best to drink beet juice.

In a related study, participants drank 250 milliliters of juice and ate 250 grams of baked beets daily for 15 days. Their blood pressure reading dropped “significantly” in just half a month.

Other foods that help fight hypertension are oily fish, green leafy vegetables, berries, legumes, citrus fruits, and carrots.

However, the most important thing is to add less salt to your food. Try using herbs and spices instead.

Although diet is very important to control blood pressure and, above all, to prevent hypertension, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor.
