Eating potatoes with skin helps lower blood pressure

Everyone knows that potatoes are a good food that can help control weight and reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

But when many people eat potatoes, they like to peel off the skin, but this wastes the most caring part.

  The dark-skinned vitamins and potassium of potatoes, peeled and eaten will lose nutrition.

Studies have shown that the vitamins in the lower part of the potato skin are as high as 80%, far exceeding the meat inside the potato.

Potassium is the nemesis of sodium, which can prevent the increase of blood pressure caused by high salt intake and has a significant antihypertensive effect.

  However, if the potato skin turns green, it means that the toxin solanine is high in it.

At this time, you must be careful when eating potatoes, and you need to peel, and you need to cut off some flesh to completely remove the green part.

If the green part of the potato skin has grown, then do not eat such potatoes, otherwise food poisoning is easy.

  In addition to potatoes, many foods are rich in potassium, especially most fresh fruits and vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, cabbage, persimmon, peach, apple, mango, papaya, pomegranate, etc.

  However, if the patient is hypertensive and accompanied by diabetes, it is necessary to control the implantation of fruit with high sugar content, and fungus, kelp, and laver are more suitable for patients with hypertension and diabetes.
