Foods To Avoid If You Have High BP

5. Alcohol

Youngsters and corporate people are too much engrossed in the consumption of alcohol and often think it as a modernist outlook. But the amount of sugar contained in it can raise your blood pressure level.

6. Tobacco

Smoking is injurious to health-all of us are well aware of this statement. Tobacco is the main cause of cancer, lungs dysfunction, health ailment, etc. Besides, chewing or smoking tobacco increases the blood pressure by narrowing the lining of the artery walls.

7. Caffeine

Having a cup of warm coffee in the chilly days of winter morning, is a great way to kick-start the morning, but an increased level of caffeine consumed can lead to an increase in the blood pressure level.

8. Pickles

Pickles are one of those foods which are loved by many. In India, it is mostly seen that people consume pickles almost on a daily basis, either with chapatis or parathas. Though they are tasty to eat, the high amount of sodium content in the pickles for preservation can lead to an increase in the blood pressure level.
