Infographic: 9 Foods That Lower Blood Pressure

I was frequenting this site, Natural News for quite sometime, but I was mostly reading the articles. I didn't notice before that they have tons of infographics and I saw this one that would prove to be helpful, not just for people suffering from hypertension, like me, but also for those who want to improve heart health in particular.  Out of these, I have yet to try Hawthorn berries and hibiscus.  I don't even know if we have the berries locally but there may be an equivalent of that here.  And I have yet to research about how to take hibiscus but I would guess that it's for making tea, sort of.  The other items, I eat occasionally. Maybe it's time to have more of them in my diet.

There are a lot more foods that help lower blood pressure.  As I have mentioned before, those foods rich in potassium are great!  So, I'll just be sharing this one.  

Natural News: 9 Foods That Lower Blood Pressure




Note to Natural News site owner... My comment that was under moderation was published, but my query was not answered.  I hope that publishing my comment means you allow me to post this infographic.  Thank you.

  1. I'll share this to my mom who is hypertensive. However, have you heard of Quantumin? It's locally available and it helps balance all the minerals in our body and cures a myriad of illnesses too :)

  3. Yay chocolates! Sabi nga nila healthy naman ang chocolates minus the nuts. But I think everything should be in moderation. Hibiscus is gumamela ba? Mukha kasi e. It's slimy and maybe high in colagen :)

  7. Woohoo. At least I eat almost everything in this infographic except purple potatoes and raisins. :) Pero yeah, the chocolate should be the dark variety ata but should be taken in moderation.

  28. First time I heard of it...I looked it up already but it's kind of expensive ata?

  29. When I was a kid, I like the sweet milk chocolate kind...but as I grew older, and because of my love for coffee too, I like dark chocolate with just a hint of sweetness

  30. very helpful infographic, checking over mukhang nakakain ko naman ang karamihan ng food na yan

  31. If I am not mistaken, purple potatoes are the purple colored kamote. Our ube or purple yam has a different consistency to purple potatoes.

  32. Really interesting infographic. However, I just wonder how the hibiscus or gumamela can be used to lower blood pressure.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I know that dark choco is healthier kaso matigas din ulo ko. I try to lessen the intake of white choco as much as possible nalang.

    ReplyDelete
  34. it's my first time to heard about purple tomatoes.. informative alright! XD

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yup, I think purple potatoes are the purple kamotes. I'm totally recommending this to my dad, who's a stroke patient. Nice infographic, as usual! :D

  36. I never thought that chocolate is one of food that lowers down cholesterol. Perhaps for now we would be lowering down our cholesterol because we got so plenty of chocolates in the house.
