A source of calcium, potassium and vitamin D which encourage lower blood pressure. Replacing low fat dairy for full fat notes an increase in palmitic acid, which helps relax blood vessels, leaving them in a tightened state that may keep blood pressure elevated.

2. Hibiscus tea

Consumption of hibiscus tea can greatly decrease blood pressure, especially when it’s elevated. The anthocyainins and rest of the antioxidants in hibiscus tea work together to stave off the blood vessels becoming narrow. Recommended daily dose is 3 cups per day, steeped for 6 minutes before drinking. Cold or hot.

3. Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice has the same effect on the blood pressure as red wine. Both of the beverages including apple juice and cocoa, include antioxidants called proanthocyanidins, inhibiting  synthesis of compound ET-1 which constricts blood vessels.
