High Blood pressure can be significantly lowered or reduced by changing dietary habits. From the research, it has been shown that some foods can help in lowering blood pressure for long term and also in the right way. High blood pressure also known as hypertension affects a high percentage of adults in pakistan according to the National Health Survey pakistan.

So, in this article, we will be discussing some foods that will help in lowering high blood pressure and its effects.
Garlic is among the foods that have high natural antibiotic and antifungal properties. Allicin which is the main and active ingredient in garlic is associated with many health benefits. It is also proven from the researches that nitric oxide in the garlic helps in smoothing the muscles and dilating the blood vessels which will eventually helps in lowering blood pressure, moreover, it is also suggested that both systolic and diastolic pressure in hypertensive people can be lowered from garlic. Hypertensive people should use garlic instead of salt because garlic provides a savory flavor to foods such as soups, stir fries and omelets.
Leafy Green Vegetables:
The second food that helps in lowering blood pressure are leafy green vegetables because they are a rich source of nitrates. From a study, it is suggested that eating 1-2 servings of nitrate rich vegetables can reduce high blood pressure for upto 24 hours.
Leafy green vegetables include:
Saag/ Mustard green
These vegetables can be eaten in the form of a proper meal by adding garlic into it to give an extra flavor and enhanced texture.
Oats are basically a whole grain food. Oats contain a compound called beta-glucan which helps in lowering the cholesterol levels. And it also helps in lowering high blood pressure. Beta glucan is basically a fibre that is present in oats and it lowers the systolic and diastolic pressure. This fibrous compound is also present in barley. You can eat oats by taking them in the breakfast, by adding milk and also they can be aten by adding chicken stew.
High blood pressure can be lowered by drinking beetroot juice. As beets contain high percentages of nitrates it helps a lot in lowering the systolic and diastolic levels. Beets can be eaten in salads and can also be taken in the form of juice. Drinking 1 cup of beetroot juice everyday can lead to normalizing the blood pressure.
Berries contain anthocyanins which are antioxidants. Antioxidants are basically the substances that help in the protection of cells from the free radicals. Anthocyanins are present in high amounts in strawberries and blueberries. High intake of anthocyanin can lower the high blood pressure. Berries can be eaten in many forms but the best form is to eat them raw.

High blood pressure that is also known as hypertension in
medical is a health condition that occurs because of the long-term force of the
blood in contradiction to the artery walls. This blood force is high enough and
so it causes various health issues specifically cardiovascular diseases.
The rate of blood pressure can be determined by calculating
the amount of resistance of the blood flow into the arteries or by calculating
the amount of blood that is produced by your heart. Your arteries get narrow if
the heart pumps more blood. Hence, it may happen that you may not get any
symptom for years while suffering from high blood pressure. It is not essential
to get visible symptoms, but this disease may be detected without them by
checking your blood pressure. It is important to treat this problem as early as
possible as it may damage your blood vessels. If you don’t control your blood
pressure, it may cause serious health risks, such as stroke and heart attack.

pressure is. According to medical experts, 120/80 is the perfect reading of
having normal blood pressure. It is read as 120 over 80. The bottom number is
known as diastolic and the upper number is known as systolic. Following list
