If you are looking for a natural way to keep your blood pressure in check, have a handful of raisins! The American College of Cardiology suggests that raisins will do the trick for adults with hypertension or mild increases in blood pressure.
Consuming raisins daily may lower the readings over other common snacks, because raisins are packed with potassium, which is known for lower blood pressure, and they are also a great source of antioxidant dietary fiber.
A handful (about 60 raisins) contains 1 gram of fiber, and 212 milligrams of potassium.
So go on, grab a handful of raisin for your snack, put it in your salad, or mix it with your oatmeal to spice up your food dishes. Even if you don’t have high blood pressure or hypertension, you could benefit the potassium and fiber that raisins provide.
