Reduce Salt Intake
As excess salt intake holds on to the water in the body raising the blood pressure. Try not to consume more than 1tsp (6 gm salt)/day. Use herbs like pepper, jeera powder, oregano, chilli flakes, lemon juice etc for adding flavor to your foods. Avoid processed foods like breads, biscuits, ketchups, ready to eat options, canned meats etc as they are loaded with salt.
