Eat Bananas, Milk, unsalted sunflower seeds, beans, cocoa or dark chocolate and potatoes with the skin. Why? Eatting a potassium rich diet, makes the body become more efficient at getting rid of excess sodium. These foods also provide magnesium. Both play a role in keeping BP down.

    Dr. Oz's website recently sent out an email with a similar list, except his also included blueberries.

    Taurine works for me. It has lowered my blood pressure when food alone won't. Both doctors' Oz and Atkins in his book suggest taurine (an amino acid) to lower blood pressure. You can buy taurine in a health food store or GNC.

    Bananas are way too carb loaded for me to eat and be able to control my type 2 diabetes without meds.
