Those who have low blood pressure know that care with food must be redoubled. After all, if the body becomes dehydrated or deficient in nutrients, it is possible that characteristic symptoms of this type of problem may appear – such as dizziness, weakness, dizziness, paleness and headache. Therefore, it is very important to have a healthy lifestyle, with a good diet and physical exercise.

What to do when pressure is low?

When pressure drops suddenly, it is very important to know what to do to reverse the condition and avoid unwanted symptoms. And, contrary to what many people think, putting salt under the tongue is not considered the best method to solve the problem. It is recommended to lay the person down and raise the legs using some pillows or pillows. In addition, it can offer liquids such as orange juice, as it contains a good amount of glucose.

It is also worth noting that always carrying specific foods in the bag can help a lot in some situations. It is essential to have some fast food available, such as a protein bar or nuts. So the tip is: when the person feels some discomfort, just eat the food immediately and do not change posture abruptly.

What are the main foods for low blood pressure?

Did you know that there are foods indicated for those who have low blood pressure? This is because certain nutrients have thermogenic action, that is, they accelerate metabolism and, consequently, blood circulation and also help to keep the body hydrated, which avoids possible low blood pressure crises.

The consumption of foods rich in vitamin B (pyridoxine), such as nuts in general (walnuts, hazelnuts) and coffee, which is a thermogenic source, helps not to have episodes of blood pressure drops. It is noteworthy that rosemary is also beneficial for blood circulation.

To avoid blood pressure drops, in addition to drinking plenty of water and fluids rich in vitamins (to avoid dehydration), it is also recommended to go on a diet with foods that improve blood circulation. The main examples are:

Salmon

Tuna fish

Nuts

Tomato

Orange

Lemon

Kiwi

Papaya

Ginger

Chia seeds

Garlic

Onion
