Eat fish oil. It lowers blood pressure and also lowers cholesterol, which would be a good bonus for almost anyone. Look for a brand that includes something along the lines of 400 milligrams of EPA and 200 milligrams of DHA. Plant oils work as well but are much less effective since your body must turn the omega-3 fatty acids in them into EPA and DHA.
