8. Bananas Lower Blood Pressure?

This research was supported by an Indian study which found eating just two bananas a day reduces blood pressure by 10 percent in as little as a week.
Bananas are low in sodium and high in potassium, so they’re perfect for 67 million Americans suffering the condition.
