Bananas lower blood pressure for several causes. They're potassium-rich. Potassium lowers sodium's effects.
Potassium helps heart health and blood pressure. It reduces stroke and heart disease risk. A small banana has 422 milligrammes of potassium, or 9% of the RDA.
These yellow fruits are also great when balancing the fluids and electrolytes in your body.
This helps the body maintain blood and fluid volume–this aids in maintaining normal blood pressure.
Bananas comprise 10% of your daily potassium and magnesium needs, both electrolyte minerals.
Electrolytes transfer water and energy from the circulation into the muscles. This helps prevent post-workout cramps and exhaustion.
Potassium and salt are electrolytes that sustain fluid and blood volume. This ensures bodily function. Find a balance. Insufficient potassium and salt can elevate blood pressure.
Bananas are available and inexpensive. This makes them widely available as a blood pressure-lowering meal.
Many methods exist to eat them. Bananas can be blended, topped with cereal or yoghurt, baked, or eaten alone.
