High blood pressure - The Information You Need To Kow.

By mweobruce • 4 weeks ago • 2885 views • 1000 comments

HIGH blood pressure risk could be lowered by making some diet or lifestyle changes. You could lower your chances of developing deadly hypertension symptoms and signs by avoiding this vegetable when preparing your dinner. Are you at risk of high blood pressure?


High blood pressure is a common condition that affects more than a quarter of all adults in the UK. But, you could lower your risk of developing hypertension by avoiding potatoes, it's been claimed.

High blood pressure - which is also known as hypertension - puts extra stress on blood vessels and vital organs.

The condition could lead to some deadly complications, including strokes and heart attacks.

It could be caused by eating an unhealthy diet, or by not doing enough exercise.

You could be raising your chances of deadly hypertension if you regularly eat potatoes, it's been revealed.

Eating four or more servings of potatoes every week could be raising your chances of high blood pressure by around 11 percent, compared with people that eat less than one serving per month, scientists have claimed.

But swapping just one daily serving of baked, boiled or mashed potato with a non-starchy vegetable could lower the risk of hypertension by up to seven percent.

Beetroot is an ideal substitute for potato, according to Healthspan medical director, Dr Sarah Brewer.

It contains nitrates, which help to dilate blood vessels, and subsequently lower blood pressure.
