Hello, good morning Syaputril ...
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a condition of increased blood pressure with a value of 130/80 mmHg or more. Hypertension can cause symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, blurred vision, nosebleeds, weakness, shortness of breath, and so on. But unfortunately often hypertension does not cause any symptoms, this is what makes hypertension dangerous. Often patients only find out that they have hypertension after the appearance of complications. Complications that can arise due to hypertension include: heart attack, heart swelling, stroke, kidney failure, vision loss, and so forth.
The cause of hypertension is not known with certainty. Genetic factors (heredity) are generally a factor that is very instrumental in the occurrence of hypertension. Other conditions that also increase the risk of developing hypertension include: old age, obesity, consuming too much food high in sodium (salt), smoking, high cholesterol (dyslipidemia), and diabetes. Although calcium helps to regulate blood pressure, keep in mind that lack of calcium is not the main cause of high blood pressure.
Given that high blood cholesterol comes from fatty foods, people who have hypertension are advised to reduce their consumption of foods and drinks that are high in fat, with the aim of reducing the risk of high blood cholesterol which can lead to an increase in blood. The experts recommend the consumption of food and low-fat drinks, such as low-fat milk and skim milk for patients suffering from hypertension, non-fat milk is rich in saturated fat which can increase blood cholesterol levels in the body. Milk with 1% fat content contains 2.5 grams of fat, milk with 2% fat content contains 4.5 grams of fat, while skim milk (nonfat milk) does not contain saturated fat. If the main purpose of consuming milk is to get calcium, then consider getting more calcium by adding foods high in calcium to your diet, rather than consuming excessive milk. Examples of high calcium foods include salmon, sardines, spinach, kale, and beans.
Regarding the fat content in milk that is allowed to be consumed by hypertensive patients, it should be consulted to a nutritionist first, because the dose must consider the patient's overall health condition, such as the patient's age, presence or absence of comorbidities, complications, daily activities, etc. . Therefore, please consult in advance to the experts huh ..
Meanwhile, regarding dragon fruit, it can indeed help reduce the risk of high blood pressure. This happens because dragon fruit is high in antioxidants (ie flavonoids) and also contains oleic fatty acids which can purify bad cholesterol, which causes hypertension, and increase good cholesterol levels.
Here are some ways that can be done to keep blood pressure stable besides taking blood pressure-lowering drugs:
Consume more fruits and vegetables
Reduce foods high in salt (maximum of one teaspoon per day)
Reduce consumption of red meat
Increase physical activity and exercise routine
Do not smoke
Reduce consumption of high-caffeine drinks such as coffee, tea, soda
