One U.S. adult out of every three is suffering from high blood pressure and is more exposed to the risk of heart disease and stroke.

According to an analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, covering 154 countries across 844 studies and more than 1 billion people, the problem of high blood pressure is worldwide, and it has more serious consequences.

People suffering from High blood pressure (BP), also called hypertension hardly show any noticeable signs and this is what makes it more dangerous leading to some serious health problems such as heart attacks or strokes.

Tens of millions of adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure, and many do not have it under control, says the CDC.

The only way to check if your blood pressure is high is to have it tested, something everyone should be doing often.

Following a nutritious, heart-healthy diet is suggested for all people with high blood pressure, including those on blood-pressure-lowering medications.

Here are the five best friends of high blood pressure.

Control Salt intake

Table salt is a major contributor of about 40 percent sodium, of which you’re recommended to eat about one teaspoon a day with high blood pressure.

Foods to avoid:

  • Breads and rolls
  • Pizza
  • Sandwiches
  • Cured meats
  • Soup

Avoid Processed Meats

Processed and deli meats carry salt as it used to preserve them.

According to many studies, reducing your sodium intake from 10g a day to 6g could reduce your blood pressure. It could result in a 16 percent reduction in stroke deaths and a 12 percent reduction in coronary heart disease deaths.

No more Sugar

Sugar causes obesity, something everyone knows, but it’s also a main factor in increasing blood pressure.

Sugar disrupts metabolism by producing too much insulin and leptin.

Some sugary foods to say good bye:

  • Fruit juice
  • Sports drinks
  • Protein bars
  • High-fructose corn syrup

Control your Saturated and trans fats

Eating too much saturated and trans fats increases your bad cholesterol and, therefore, raises the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.

Foods containing large quantities of saturated and trans fats should be avoided include:

  • Red meat – beef, lamb and pork
  • Chicken skin
  • Full-fat milk
  • Full-fat butter
  • Doughnuts
  • Crisps
  • Frozen pizza

Say no to Alcohol

Alcohol containing sugar and calories contribute to obesity, which increases the risk of hypertension and it also prevents any medicine from working properly.
