Tips for Keeping Normal Blood Pressure
EXERCISE & LOSING EXCESS WEIGHT
One reason exercise is so effective at controlling blood pressure is because it stimulates your body to release a substance called nitric acid. Nitric acid causes blood vessels to open up, which reduces blood pressure. Exercise also helps to strengthen your heart muscle, reduce stress and aid weight loss. Being overweight increases your risk for heart disease and diabetes, too.
Eating the right type of diet can lower your risk for high blood pressure or help you return to normal blood pressure. Clinical studies show that a diet high in fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains, poultry, fish, and nuts really works. You also need to avoid fats, red meat, and excess sugar.
SHAKE THE SALT HABIT
Your body only needs about 500 milligrams of salt a day, but if you are like the average American you may be consuming up to 9,000 mg a day. Studies show that high salt leads to high blood pressure. Current recommendations are to limit salt intake to 2,400 mg per day, the equivalent of about one teaspoon.
LIMIT SMOKING & DRINKING
These are two other bad habits to avoid if you want to keep a normal blood pressure. Alcohol raises blood pressure and adds empty calories. Smoking is not safe in any amount. Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict and that raises blood pressure.
Q: At what age do I need to start monitoring my blood pressure?
A: Risk of high blood pressure increase with age; however, high blood pressure doesn’t have any signs or symptoms, and it doesn’t discriminate by age.
Q: How often do I need to check my blood pressure?
A: Routine monitoring can provide your healthcare provider with important information to determine if you have high blood pressure and what treatment plan to recommend.
Q: What Causes High Blood Pressure?
A: While the cause of high blood pressure in most people remains unclear, a variety of conditions – such as getting little or no exercise, poor diet, obesity, older age, and genetics – can contribute.
Q: What is systolic and diastolic blood pressure?
A: The blood pressure reading is written as systolic pressure, the force of the blood against the artery walls as your heart beats, over diastolic pressure, the pressure between heartbeats.
Q: What are the risk factors that can put me at greater risk for developing high blood pressure?
A: Common hereditary and risk factors include, age, family history, gender, race, diet and more.
