Dr Chris: 3 foods to 'reduce blood pressure' – 'especially if you suffer hypertension'


High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is often referred to as the “silent” condition. Characterised by a lack of symptoms, the condition can quietly boost your risk of severe health problems. Fortunately, simple lifestyle modifications can help reduce your high levels.

In case you’re not aware, high blood pressure details the long-term force of blood against your artery walls that is high enough to lead to health problems, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Around one third of Britons suffer from hypertension – and many might not even know about it.

The good news is that there are ways to control the condition and lower your reading.

Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, Dr Chris has shared the promising findings of a recent study from the University of South Australia, looking at this condition.

The main finding of the research was that having a daily dose of yoghurt could cut high blood pressure.

Dr Chris said: “Now, this is normal natural yoghurt, not a fruit flavoured one with added sugar.

“Ideally, live yoghurt, if you can get it.

“They also advise having walnuts every day and also herbal tea, in particular, hibiscus.”
