In brief: No!

Taking bananas don't decrease bp.
Non-pharmacological therapy include reducing salt intake to 1.5gm daily, daily exercise and keeping ideal body weight!

In brief: No, not alone

It's thought that a diet higher in potassium can lower our blood pressure, so foods rich in potassium can help.
Check out the dash diet.
