If you’re hoping to get a handle on your high blood pressure you can start in the kitchen.
A recent study put together a list of foods that may lower or better control hypertension.
Northwestern University researchers found the foods they believe work best to improve blood pressure.Topping the list are fresh fruits, vegetables and legumes.
researchers say fresh veggies are better because canned vegetables, while convenient, may be high in sodium.
Other blood pressure lowering foods include lean meats like unprocessed beef, veal, and pork. Whole grain products to eat are bread, cereals, pasta, and rice.
egg whites, fish and shellfish, and lean poultry also make the list. Vegetable Oils like corn, olive, and sunflower oils are there, too, but all without added salt and in modest portion sizes.
