Sunflower seeds are rich in potassium, magnesium and phytosterols which can aid in the lowering of your cholesterol level. (High levels of cholesterol can cause a constriction of the arteries and blood vessels which raises blood pressure). BANANAS
Bananas are rich in potassium and have a high fiber content. Try to eat at least two bananas every day.
Unsaturated fats can help reduce cholesterol and provide essential fatty acid that the body needs. Fish contain omega-3 which prevents heart disease. Try eating oily fish such as trout, salmon and mackerel. It will be a lot healthier for you if you grill, bake or steam the fish. Do not add salt when cooking. Sardines, too, are a good choice. Fresh fish are best, but if you must buy tinned fish check the label to make sure the salt content is low.

Garlic helps thin the blood and stops blood vessels clogging, so reducing blood pressure. Try chewing a clove or two of garlic each day. If you don't want to lose all your friends you may prefer to take it in the form of a supplement.
