Studies show that consuming enough potassium may be as important for healthy blood pressure as avoiding too much sodium. To prevent high blood pressure, choose a healthy eating plan that includes plenty of foods rich in potassium and low in sodium. For sodium, if you eat a lot of salted foods, processed foods and table salt, consider reducing your intake. Potassium-rich foods include many fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, bananas, cantaloupe and cooked dark green vegetables such as spinach. Source: National Institutes of Health
