High blood pressure can be hereditary - but genetic predisposition does not mean you cannot help to control it.
The top suggestions for reducing Hypertension would be:
1- Stop smoking.
2- Get regular exercise.
3- Lose weight. - ( More specifically, body fat)
4- Eat a healthy diet, - ( Eat clean - see what happens)
5- Reduce alcohol consumption. ( Everything in moderation)
6- Reduce stress. ( Just breathe)
7- Reduce sodium and processed sugar intake ( See #4)

If you are doing all of the above and communicating with your doctor on a regular basis, you should see a reduction in your BP Numbers.....
There are "studies" that indicate certain foods help reduce BP such as dark chocolate, red wine ( moderation) oysters, and spinach may help to reduce numbers. Do some research and see if any fit your lifestyle. Good luck.
