Question Orange Juice and Bananas

Somewhere on this board was mentioned that orange juice and bananas help lower blood pressure. Is this true?

Re: Orange Juice and Bananas

Check out this article: http://www.afpafitness.com/articles/bpkiller.htm

It has some information on Potassium (orange juice and bananas are both high in potassium.) Potassium promotes good muscle function and your heart is indeed a muscle. As you'll see in that article, onions and garlic have been known to reduce BP as well.
