Certain foods raise your blood pressure – we all know that. But when someone asks exactly what foods lower their blood pressure and which ones increase, many will just say "it goes up when you eat meat and when you eat fruits and vegetables."
In a general sense, that right. But many people do not realize that it is not so simple.
Foods that come from animals are often more likely to cause high blood pressure than fruits and vegetables. But even some foods that do not come from animals can contain many elements, especially sodium or salt, which affect blood pressure negatively. Think of French fries, frozen foods that come in a box (like frozen lasagna), and canned soups, just to name a few. And then there are the fast food fries that we all love.
