Here are six drinks that may offer some benefits as stated:

Skim Milk:

Skim milk contains potassium, calcium, and magnesium, which are known to help lower blood pressure. Studies suggest that drinking 1 to 2 glasses of skim milk daily can lead to a decrease in blood pressure, especially in individuals aged 55 or older, and this effect may be noticeable in as little as four weeks.

Tomato Juice:

Tomatoes contain antioxidants like lycopene, which can offer several health benefits. Research indicates that drinking 200 mL (approximately less than 1 cup) of tomato juice daily may lead to improvements in systolic blood pressure over a year in people aged 55 and older.

Beet Juice:

Beet juice contains nitrate, which can improve blood flow in the body. A clinical trial revealed that drinking a little more than 2 cups of beet juice daily led to decreased blood pressure, with the effect observed as quickly as 30 minutes after consumption and lasting up to 24 hours. This effect might be more pronounced in individuals aged 45 and older.

Hibiscus Tea:

Hibiscus tea contains the antioxidant anthocyanin, and research suggests that drinking 2 cups of hibiscus tea daily for at least two weeks can help lower blood pressure. Some studies report an effect within 1.5 hours, while others show no effect up to 4 hours after consumption, possibly due to variations in anthocyanin .

Pomegranate Juice:

Like hibiscus, pomegranate juice contains anthocyanins and may interact with an enzyme involved in blood pressure regulation. Some studies indicate that daily consumption of about ¼ cup or more of pomegranate juice for two weeks can lead to decreased blood pressure.

Grapefruit Juice:

Grapefruit contains potassium, lycopene, fiber, and other natural plant nutrients that can help lower blood pressure.
