1. Leafy greens
Sodium is a major culprit when it comes to elevated blood pressure. Potassium can assist your kidneys to eliminate more sodium through urine, which in turn reduces the effects of hypertension. Leafy greens are a fantastic source of this critical nutrient, especially romaine lettuce, arugula, turnip greens, spinach, kale, collard greens, beet greens, and Swiss chard.
If you’re not a fan of the green stuff, bananas are also potassium rich. Try blending a banana with some greens and any kind of nut milk for a more palatable way to get the potassium you need.
