Prevent high blood pressure

Research has shown that people whose diet is rich in potassium
(vegetarians for example) are less likely than others to develop high
blood pressure.

Calcium is also beneficial. Fortunately, potassium and calcium
are abundantly present in a large variety of foods.

Fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, fowl and lean meats are full of

Calcium is a little more restricted. Foods rich in calcium usually
also contain large amounts of sodium and fat, which can increase
blood pressure.

However, moderate amounts of milk are recommended, as well
as yogurt, almonds, bananas, grapes, broccoli, potatoes, beans, tofu
and sardines.
