Eat for BP

An analysis of 39 trials and studies published since 1900 found that eating a vegetarian diet lowered people’s average systolic and diastolic blood pressure numbers, compared to eating an omnivorous one. But you don’t need to go full-on veg to have a positive impact on your BP. You can make a difference by just cutting back on meat, as well as salt and sugar, while enjoying the artery protection of magnesium in almonds and oatmeal, calcium in tofu and non-fat yogurt and potassium from cantaloupe and broccoli.
