When we come to know that we have hypertension, the first thing we do is make a list of dos and don’ts to follow. And without a second thought, we tend to cut down on the foods rich in salt and try to avoid adding salt to food. However, one food you must include in the diet is a banana. Known as a comfort food, banana not only gives an instant boost of energy but also helps in maintaining your blood pressure. It can also help lower your risk of health problems due to hypertension such as heart disease and stroke. Hence, eat a banana every day to keep your blood pressure under control.

Why is banana good for people with high blood pressure?

The effectiveness of potassium-rich foods in lowering blood pressure has been demonstrated by a number of studies. Banana is one of the best sources of potassium. According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) diets containing foods that are good sources of potassium and low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. It is an essential mineral that plays a key role in maintaining blood pressure and normal heart function. Moreover, potassium also helps the body to maintain fluid and electrolyte balances in the cells, which helps control blood pressure. A medium-sized banana provides 350 mg of potassium. People with a low amount of potassium in their diet are at an increased risk of stroke. If you have hypertension, there are foods you must include in the diet every day.

It is also reported that the natural compounds in a banana act the same way as antihypertensive drugs. As compared to unripe bananas, ripened ones are found to have a stronger antihypertensive action.

How much should you eat?

According to research studies, it is reported that blood pressure fell by 10% in people who ate two bananas daily for a week. However, do talk your doctor before you include bananas in your diet if you suffer from any other health complications.
