Refuse or Limit: The Most Harmful Foods for High Blood Pressure are Named

Avoiding certain foods can help you avoid stroke and heart attack.

Arterial hypertension is one of the most common chronic diseases of our time. This problem is one of the risk factors for heart attack and stroke.

To avoid hypertension, you can refuse or limit the consumption of certain foods, TSN writes.

Bakery products

A loaf of white bread contains 100 to 200 mg of salt. The six foods that contain a lot of salt also include pizza, as cheese and tomato sauce contain a large amount of salt. The more toppings, the more salt.

Fast food

Most sandwiches, fast food burgers, and even vegetarian pita bread with falafel contain a lot of salt, which increases blood pressure. Most of it in our diet comes from dishes in cafes and snack bars.

Sausage and meat delicacies

They are sources of sodium. Nutritionists analyzed the sodium content of 124 packaged deli types of meat from different manufacturers and compared them to portions of fresh meat of the same size and found that deli meats contain 11 times more salt. Experts recommend grilling meat.

Canned vegetables

Salt is added during the preservation process to avoid spoilage. It is recommended to rinse it off under warm running water before eating.

Instant foods

Even street fast food prepared with the addition of healthy ingredients (carrots, fresh cabbage, lettuce, beans) contains more than 1000 mg of sodium due to cheese, sauces, and bread products. Eating foods rich in potassium, such as fish, avocados, bananas, and vegetables, will help limit its negative effects.

Earlier, doctors advised people with high blood pressure and weak blood vessels to avoid lifting heavy dumbbells or weights.
