Food for hypertension - low salt diet

It is well known that people wanting to lower their blood pressure should follow a low-salt (more accurately, low-sodium) diet regime. Here are some ways I have used successfully to keep my blood pressure in the 120/80 normal region:

1. When not cooking myself and eating out and being unable to control the amount of salt or sodium in the food I eat, what I do is have at least one meal which is mainly fruit based as many fruit have very low sodium content plus high potassium content.

Sodium and Potassium levels are in a kind of zero-sum situation with higher Potassium level being compensated with a lower Sodium level.

2. When cooking myself, by substituting salt with garlic, onions and spice, low salt dishes can be low-salt and yet tasty.

Blood pressure range from 120 over 80 (120/80) to 140 over 90 (140/90) for good r health.. If your blood pressure is within this range then it consider as ideal blood pressure.
avoid salty food.
