Three vegetables that aren't on the above lists are garlic, onions, and celery. These three are well known for lowering blood pressure. Garlic and onions are high in sulfuric-containing compounds and celery contains 3-n-butyl phthalide, which lowers blood pressure. Make sure you include these vegetables in your diet as well.
I got the above online and saved to my files but don't remember from where...
Also Passion fruit juice is awesome to control HBP ...
