HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE RESOURCES
Building our diets around GREEN-RATED foods is an effective way to reduce blood pressure. Although smoking, stress and salty foods are all known to increase blood pressure, another common cause is atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty plaques inside the arterial walls. This buildup restricts the flow of blood, increasing pressure and adding unnecessary strain on the heart. Atherosclerosis is caused by diets high in cholesterol (found exclusively in animal products) and saturated fat (found primarily in animal products). To lower blood pressure, stop consuming RED-RATED foods and limit your intake of salt and fat.
