iVillage: 7 Foods That Can Lower Blood Pressure

3 of 8

Bananas

If your blood pressure has been inching up lately, make bananas your go-to fruit—they’re rich in potassium and fiber. “A diet with plentiful potassium-rich foods has been shown to help lower blood pressure,” says Joan Salge Blake, R.D., author of "Nutrition and You: Core Concepts for Good Health."

Best bet: Bananas taste sweetest when their skins are slightly speckled with brown but they’re still firm.

Other good sources of potassium: Potatoes, tomato paste, apricots, lentils

Try this: “For a guilt-free dessert or breakfast, top banana slices with plain low-fat yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon,” Kremezi suggests.
