It’s becoming more popular so you can find coconut water in many supermarkets and grocery stores, and also most health food shops. Or you can buy it online:

Studies are showing that beet (or beetroot) juice is another of the drinks that lower blood pressure. It’s also much lower in sugars than fruit juice, which makes it a healthier refreshing choice. Keeping sugar consumption low is vital for lowering blood pressure.

Beet juice isn’t mainstream yet – though its healthy properties are becoming more widely known – so you’ll probably only find it in health food stores, or you can buy online:

Drinking tea has been found to be very good for blood pressure, due to its high antioxidant content. Green tea especially is excellent, and also black tea. Herbal teas are also helpful in lowering blood pressure, especially relaxing teas to calm you down. Hibiscus tea is now also known to have blood pressure-reducing properties.
