Healthy blood pres­sure isn’t only about sodium. In a Chi­nese study, people who of­ten ate fresh fruit had lower sys­tolic blood pres­sure than those who rarely did. Potas­sium may be the key: It helps re­cruit mol­e­cules that re­turn sodium to your blood, so you flush out more sodium as a re­sult. That usu­ally leads to lower blood pres­sure. Top potas­sium sources in­clude av­o­cado, squash, spinach, sweet pota­toes, sal­mon, and (yes) ba­nanas.
