Rule 1. Watch your diet for lowering blood pressure naturally – not so much sodium intake
Although restricting sodium does play a role in lowering blood pressure naturally, the benefits of restricting salt are modest. It only drops blood pressure an average of three millimeters of mercury (mm Hg, how blood pressure is measured). A healthy diet for those with high blood pressure is similar to what is considered healthy for anyone: Lots of whole foods and avoiding heavily salted, processed foods. Feel free to use a modest amount of salt from the salt shaker.
