The diet is very important for people facing hypertension.
Here are some products that are recommended to be excluded from the diet if you have hypertension.
Salty foods and foods trap excess water in the body and increase blood pressure. Products with a huge amount of salt also should be excluded: these are chips, crackers, sausages, canned food and other similar products. It is advisable to exclude even homemade pickles from the diet.
Processed foods are bad for everyone – and especially for people facing hypertension. They contain a lot of fat, preservatives, flavorings and a huge amount of salt, which, as mentioned above, increases pressure.
Excess sweets in the diet provoke weight gain and insulin insensitivity. You should not completely exclude sweets from the diet, but do not abuse.
