Eat balanced! Food plays an essential role in the variations of your blood pressure. Adopting a balanced diet will help you reduce the risk of hypertension.
1. Reduce salt 🧂
Eat salty foods in moderation. It is important to maintain a good balance between salt intake and potassium intake in order to keep blood pressure within normal limits.
A sodium to potassium ratio of 1:5 is ideal for maintaining good blood pressure.
2. Increase Omega 3 intake 🐟
Favor the consumption of fish, and in particular fatty fish (salmon, sardines, trout, etc.) which contain Omega 3 and thus provide cardiovascular protection.
3. Increase fiber intake 🍏
Increase fiber, antioxidant and potassium intake by consuming fruits and vegetables.
4. Increase potassium intake 🅿️
In the absence of renal insufficiency, increase potassium intake. Find the products in our catalog ( download here ) that contain added potassium with the P logo.
5. Limit fat and sugar intake 🍩
It is important to maintain a healthy weight, especially when practicing sports.
6. Avoid alcohol and stress 🍷
Make sure you sleep well. Avoid or moderate the consumption of alcohol.
Where can I find suitable products?Whether we like to cook or not, there are basic products that we like to use to accompany our meals. The mustard , the mayonnaise , ketchup , sauces etc…. These products found on the market are very salty and salt-free versions are rare. Fortunately, there is an online store www.regimesanssel.fr which includes more than 200 adapted references on a low-sodium diet, from aperitif to dessert, for those who like to cook or not at all!
There are also ready meals which heat up in 2 minutes in the microwave, very practical on the go, or for lunch at work!
