General dietary tips
Cutting down on the amount of salt in your food and eating plenty of fruit and vegetables can lower high blood pressure.
As the NHS explains, the more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure.
“Aim to eat less than 6g (0.2oz) of salt a day, which is about a teaspoonful,” advises the health body.
According to the health body, eating a low-fat diet that includes lots of fibre, such as wholegrain rice, bread and pasta, and plenty of fruit and vegetables also helps lower blood pressure.
