High blood pressure: Add this type of mushroom to your diet to slash your BP reading | Health | Life & Style

High blood pressure can be treated through diet and lifestyle changes.

You have the condition if you have a blood pressure reading of over 140/90 mmHg.

This can be checked by your local GP using a blood pressure monitor, or you could buy one to use on yourself at home.

High blood pressure rarely causes symptoms, meaning few people realise they have the condition, but it can increase your risk of a premature death from heart disease or stroke.

Eating shiitake mushrooms could help lower your blood pressure, according to Dr Sarah Brewer writing on mylowerbloodpressure.com.
