Top 7 African Foods That Naturally Lower High Blood Pressure

One cup of white beans provides 13% of the calcium, 30% of the magnesium, and 24% of the potassium you need every day.

Mix up this food with your side dishes, soups and snacks.

2. Dairy Products

Researchers have found a link between the consumption of low-fat dairy and a reduced risk of hypertension. This was seen most strongly with low-fat yoghurt and milk. Though calcium may play a role, it’s likely other components of dairy that protect, including compounds such as peptides, released during digestion also help. People who consume low-fat dairy also simply may have a healthier overall lifestyle.

3. Tilapia
