Garlic, the holy grail of nutritious vegetables! It is a natural antibiotic which promotes the production of nitric oxide. Garlic’s effect on the blood vessels is similar to that of red beets. Many studies have proved that garlic reduces both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, ensuring better health for people.
Garlic is not the most popular choice due to its pungent taste and weird aftertaste. However, it can be squashed into meals as a better alternative for salt. This has the double effect of reducing sodium consumption (salt is very high in sodium) and improving the blood pressure as explained above.
