6 practical and healthy recipes for those suffering from high blood pressure


Learn how to prepare delicious dishes for a balanced diet

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a chronic disease that affects more than 38 million Brazilians, according to data from the Ministry of Health (MS). One of the main aggravating factors of the problem is excessive salt consumption. Therefore, adopting a healthy diet is essential, as the sodium in some foods can contribute to increasing blood pressure and increasing the risk of disease.




“Undiagnosed or untreated hypertension can lead to fatal consequences. Acute myocardial infarction, stroke, kidney failure and diabetes are the main consequences of the disease,” explains cardiologist Allan Cembranel.
