Healthy blood pressure diet

Healthy blood pressure diet

Your diet - what you eat and drink - has a real effect on your heart and blood pressure. The more healthy your eating habits are, the lower your blood pressure will be.

If you have high blood pressure, it is even more important to make healthy changes to your diet. If you take medicines for your blood pressure, then a healthy blood pressure diet can reduce the number you may need. For a few people, following blood pressure friendly eating habits may help them to avoid medicines altogether.

Eating a healthy blood pressure diet

Our new booklet gives you practical information on how to make blood pressure friendly changes to your eating habits and diet to lower your blood pressure. It has been written with help from people who have high blood pressure, and from professionals who are experts in the field.
