Watermelon is being tested as a new tool in the fight to lower blood pressure. There are already some really great ways to help reduce blood pressure. Quitting smoking and cutting down on alcohol and caffeine consumption can really help lower blood pressure, and exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can also help. In addition, cutting down on salt and lowering our sugar intake are some of the first things doctors prescribe to help fight high blood pressure. It seems watermelon may now be another tool to add to the arsenal.
- If you are over 40, or have a family history of high blood pressure, limit your salt intake to about 1,500 mg a day
- Thousands of studies have identified sugar as the main culprit for high blood pressure
- Because watermelon is mainly water, it fills you up without the added calories, leading to weight loss
