    Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is the most common preventable risk factor for heart disease.

    Over 1 billion people around the world have high blood pressure, which is defined as systolic blood pressure values of 130 mm Hg or more, a diastolic blood pressure of more than 80 mm Hg, or both.

    Medications are commonly used to reduce blood pressure levels. However, lifestyle changes, including dietary modifications, can help lower blood pressure levels to optimal ranges and reduce your risk of heart disease.

    Following a nutritious, heart-healthy diet is suggested for all people with high blood pressure, including those on blood-pressure-lowering medication. A healthy diet is essential for lowering blood pressure and maintaining optimal levels, and research has shown that including certain foods in your diet, especially those high in specific nutrients like potassium and magnesium, reduces your blood pressure levels.

    Here are the 17 best foods for high blood pressure.

    My blood pressure, which used to be super low, increased recently, possibly as a result of taking Nsaids. I had to research it to discover their effect and make the connection, and have since given up taking any of them. I do eat almost all of the listed foods regularly, with the exception of pumpkin seeds, Chia seeds and flaxseed (which usually serve as condiments rather than the main part of a meal) and pistachios, because I haven't the patience to keep shelling them and the shelled nuts are pricey!

    I think #14 (Herbs & Spices) was given short shrift. There are a number of herbs, spices, like ginger, cardamon, curcumin, etc. that play a significant role in lowering blood pressure.....naturally!!
