Blood Pressure

Studies show that consuming too little potassium may be as big a risk factor for high blood pressure as eating too much sodium. To prevent high blood pressure, choose a healthy eating plan that includes plentyof foods rich in potassium and low in sodium.

For sodium, if you eat a lot of salted foods, processed foods and table salt, consider reducing your intake. Potassium-rich foods include many fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, bananas, cantaloupe and cooked dark green vegetables such as spinach.
