High blood pressure, eat salty dried fruit cautiously

After a meal every day, Lao Zhang and his family watched TV while eating dried fruits such as melon seeds and pistachios. In a few days, Lao Zhang’s blood pressure continued to rise.

Wang Xingguo, director of the Nutrition Department of Dalian Central Hospital, said that nut foods contain a lot of fat, the fat content of melon seeds is 55%, and the fat content of walnuts is as high as 60%. Although nuts are rich in vitamins and nutrients such as iron and zinc, excessive consumption of such foods can have adverse effects on human health. He recommends that the weight of nuts should not exceed 10 grams per day. Especially for patients with high blood pressure and high blood lipids, they must not eat nuts, especially salt and dried fruits. Otherwise, it will directly lead to high blood pressure.
