Water: the best ally

In this kind of situation, water remains the best ally. In fact, consuming fluids increases the volume of blood. If the liquid is high in sodium, the effects can even double. Therefore, drink water regularly to avoid dehydration. At the same time, avoid alcohol, because it dilates the vessels even more and causes a drop in pressure. In addition, it may make dehydration even worse.

Salt: to recover quickly

Besides water, salt is also the magic ingredient in quickly recovering from low blood pressure. As salt is responsible for hypertension, it can therefore quickly increase the blood pressure of a person who suffers from hypotension. To do this, salt your dishes abundantly. However, be careful not to overdo it. Excessive salt intake can clog arteries and cause fluid retention in the long run.

Fruits and vegetables

Eating fruits and vegetables can also help you fight low blood pressure, but not just all of them. Beets and carrots, in particular, have a good supply of sugar, vitamins and protein. This helps regulate blood pressure. You can consume it on an empty stomach as a juice, in the morning or in the evening. Apart from beets, pulses are also a good alternative in case of hypotension. Pulses are rich in vitamin B and help raise blood pressure.

Rest and good movements

Finally, when suffering from hypotension, it is more than important to rest. Low blood pressure often leads to severe fatigue. Therefore, the easiest and most effective solution in this case is rest. So take a nap or sleep longer. Along with this, also do some stretching to avoid the discomfort that low blood pressure can cause. Stretch, massage your legs, wiggle your toes before getting up. Also, do moderate physical exercise regularly to improve blood circulation.
