Instead of taking certain prescribed tablets on daily basis in order to
diminish its effect, it can also be controlled by taking a balanced & appropriate diet. In this
regard the below mentioned pieces of advice can be exceedingly supportive to control
High Blood Pressure and Daily Diet Control
First, research has shown that fresh fruits &
vegetables like citrus, fruit juice, carrot, celery, cucumber, cabbage and other green leafy
vegetables all have a protective effect on cardiovascular, so the patients should use these
fruits & vegetables frequently & regularly to decrease the risk of stroke.
Second, the use of Salt adds fuel to fire by aggravating
the effect of disease. That’s why it’s strongly recommended to use such food items which have
minimum quantity of salt. Rather they should use such food which has great quantity of Potassium
as it protects the cardiac cells. Foods such as amaranth, spinach, tomato, bitter gourd, yam all
contain a large amount of potassium and are highly helpful to minimize the chance of heart
Third, cholesterol also aggravates the chances of heart
attack so the patients should control the intake of cholesterol. They should eat less oily
foods, especially the food comprised of animal fats, and limit the intake of all animal organs
(such as heart, liver, kidney), fatty meat, butter, egg yolk and other foods which are rich in
cholesterol and fatty acids.
Fourth, the excessive use of smoking & alcohol can be
disastrous for your heart and other valuable body organs as well. It is just like burning fire
under one’s own feet. There is nicotine in cigarette which enters into the body when the smoke
is inhaled. As nicotine enters the body, it is distributed quickly through the bloodstream and,
resultantly, it stimulates the heart, accelerates the heart rate, thus leading to high blood
pressure. What's more, nicotine can also promote the deposition of cholesterol on the vascular
wall, which may increase the chance of coronary heart disease and stroke. On the other hand,
drinking alcohol even at a small scale can increase the level of high-density lipoprotein in
blood which leads to heart attack.
Above all, the use of healthy & balanced diet can be
highly effective to have an emphatic control over the disease. The food which contains plenty of
protein, cellulose, glucose, fructose, etc is usually considered a balanced & health diet
for the patients afflicted in Heart diseases & can be taken as the medical food for
hypertension and diabetics.
