8 Foods That Lower Blood Pressure


3. Broccoli

Broccoli is truly a powerhouse of nutrients, the most widely researched vegetable that nature has to offer, and of course, brimming with countless health benefits. It hails from the plant-family of cruciferous veggies, which are all hailed amongst superfoods, but broccoli truly beats every other veggie with its incredibly potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant profiles. No other food time can beat broccoli at reducing blood pressure levels, and enhancing the strength of the heart.

Broccoli is packed with a powerful assortment of blood pressure-lowering nutrients, such as Vitamin C, fiber, calcium, magnesium and potassium. All you need is one cup of steamed broccoli to brim your body with an impressive 200% of your daily nutrient requirement for vitamin C, which works wonders at regulating healthy blood pressure levels.

Research suggests that vitamin C aids the body in excreting lead, which causes the sympathetic nervous system to become calm and relax, and eventually protects nitric oxide, an essential molecule that is responsible for relaxing blood vessels. This entire process speeds up the blood flow, and the antioxidant profile of vitamin C lowers blood pressure levels naturally.
