Blood pressure is a measure of the force that blood exerts on artery walls, It is defined by two measurements in mmHg: the SAP (systolic blood pressure) and the PAD (diastolic blood pressure).

Many studies suggest the importance of foods in the regulation of blood pressure.

Potassium, calcium, and magnesium appear to be dietary factors. involved in the control of cardiac output and vascular resistance and therefore of the blood pressure regulation.

A low supply of potassium, calcium, and magnesium, associated with high consumption in sodium, would potentiate the increase in blood pressure.

Many studies have looked at the risks of high salt consumption on health, but also the interest of reducing its consumption on the pressure arterial.

Potassium, magnesium, and fiber can help to control blood pressure. the vegetables are high in potassium, magnesium, and they’re low in sodium.
