The 5 Faves

Yogurt

A standard and well-known food is yogurt, healthy for many reasons.

Blueberries

On the preventative side, there are blueberries.
According to doctors, a cup of blueberries eaten every day will act to prevent hypertension and prehypertension as you get older.

Beetroot Juice

Here is one recommended by the American Heart Association (AMA) – beetroot juice.
Though a familiar food on the list of high blood pressure reducing foods, the AMA published in its own magazine that beetroot juice can reduce blood pressure levels by as much as 10 percent.
Larger studies need to be performed before any final conclusions are drawn.

Bananas

Finally, there is the banana. The reason bananas are an important food is because of the high amount of potassium present.
