Foods for High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

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. It is defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP) values (the top number) of 130 mm Hg or more, diastolic blood pressure (DBP, the bottom number) of more than 80 mm Hg, or both.

Lifestyle changes and dietary modifications can also help lower blood pressure levels and reduce your risk of heart disease. Doctors may also prescribe medications to reduce blood pressure levels, including angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.

Including certain foods in your diet, especially ones in potassium and magnesium, may help lower your blood pressure levels.
