Beat hypertension—Lower your blood pressure with simple lifestyle changes to protect yourself from this hidden health problem. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Watch what you eat

    Choose a diet low in cholesterol and animal fat, and high in produce, whole grains, legumes, and low-fat dairy, with some nuts and seeds.

  • Get more soy

    Add 10 grams of soy protein or 16 ounces soy milk twice daily into your diet to help lower blood pressure.

  • Boost heart health with supplemental garlic

    600 to 900 mg a day of a standardized garlic extract can improve heart and blood vessel health, and also has a mild blood pressure–lowering effect.

  • Try CoQ10

    Taking 100 mg a day of this powerful antioxidant may have a significant impact on your blood pressure after one to several months.

  • Sidestep salt

    Avoid using too much table salt, limit salty fast foods, and read labels to find low-sodium foods (less than 140 mg per serving) in your grocery store.

  • Take minerals

    Supplements of calcium (800 to 1,500 mg a day) and magnesium (350 to 500 mg a day) may be helpful.

  • Maintain a healthy weight

    Lose excess weight and keep it off with a long-term program of healthier eating and regular aerobic exercise for 30 to 60 minutes per day, four or more days per week.

  • Go vegetarian

    Vegetarians have lower blood pressure than meat eaters, partly because of the mineral potassium in fruits and vegetables, which helps blood pressure.

  • Limit alcohol

    Keep daily alcohol intake to two drinks or less per day, and fewer than 9 drinks per week for women to help prevent hypertension.
