Want to lower your high blood pressure? Go for a high protein diet, say experts. Recent studies reveal that a diet rich in protein can help lower high blood pressure. It happens because protein rich foods contain amino acids that help lower high blood pressure.
Take care, however, to avoid saturated protein like red meat, steaks etc. They do more harm than good. Also avoid sweetened or salted protein rich foods to prevent excessive sodium intake. Leafy greens, nuts, seeds, lentils etc. are good and healthy sources of protein. They also fill up your tummy for a long time and stop you from craving for high caloried carbs. It helps in weight loss too.
