Low Blood Pressure Lifestyle
Reducing your risk factors, eating a healthy diet, and taking the right supplements all contribute to healthy blood pressure. But that’s only part of the story.
So much of what we do on a daily basis affects our blood pressure: what we eat, what we drink, whether we smoke, how much exercise we get...
Ignorance may be bliss in some cases, but not when it comes to blood pressure. High blood pressure—measured at 140 mmHg over 80 mmHg or higher—is aptly called “the silent killer.” It can lead to stroke, enlarged heart, congestive heart failure, kidney and eye damage, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), mental decline, and early death. In fact, in 2002, hypertension was cited as a leading or contributing factor in 277,000 American deaths.
