People who suffer from low blood pressure know how debilitating the consequences of this disorder can be in everyday life.

The characteristic symptoms are: fatigue , muscle weakness, headache, dizziness, ringing in the ears, blurred vision and even fainting.

Nutrition and hydration are the first help to keep the pressure in balance and prevent it from dropping too low!


For this there are first aid foods to always keep with you, in your bag or pocket, to act promptly.

The first of all is chocolate , preferably dark, because it contains epicatechin, a flavonoid that helps keep the artery walls flexible, avoiding occlusions.

If the hot chocolate melts, it is better to switch to licorice in logs or tablets. It naturally increases blood pressure thanks to glycyrrhizin, which is metabolized by our body and acts in a very similar way to aldosterone, a hormone that promotes blood pressure increase, maintaining blood pressure homeostasis in the kidney.

Nuts like almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts are very healthy for the heart. A handful of dried fruit, even mixed, a day serves as a remineralizer and in addition they are very practical to carry around as a snack.

Dates and raisins are highly sugary foods that turn out to be an excellent timely aid.

Bananas for their high potassium content also help regulate blood pressure.

As a drink you can take karkadè , an infusion of hibiscus flowers, native to the warmest African and tropical regions. Excellent remedy to get yourself up. Free of caffeine but rich in antioxidants! Convenient to carry around in a nice thermal bottle, also to be consumed as a cool drink throughout the day!

Last but not least, remember to drink at least 1.5 liters per day to stay hydrated.

Having these snacks with you at all times allows the person to distribute 5-6 small light meals during the day that provide a constant supply of energy in the body, essential to avoid lowering the oxygen level in the cells, and therefore symptoms such as fainting, lethargy and difficulty. of concentration.
