Natural ways to control high blood pressure

Hypertension, or high blood pressure is a condition classified due to the systolic and diastolic blood pressures.  Over time, increased pressure inside the arteries can stretch the tissues that make up the walls beyond a healthy limit.

Keeping your blood pressure low can reduce your risk of:

There are many medications that can help you to keep your blood pressure in a reasonable range.  The most effective ways to manage your blood pressure are by:

  • Exercising regularly

In fact, many normal every day foods have been proven to lower blood pressure by a measurable amount when consumed on a regular basis.  The following foods have been shown in medical studies to help lower blood pressure:
