Lowering Your Blood Pressure

September 19, 2014

There are many ways of reducing and managing blood pressure. Here are some tips to help you.

Maintaining a healthy diet can go a long way in managing and lowering your blood pressure. Consume as little salt as possible. If possible, avoid it altogether. Fill your diet with fresh fruits and vegetables. An adult person needs about five servings, each equivalent to 80g, per day.

Don’t stick to your favorites only. Eat a variety of them. Avoid high calorie and fatty foods. This is one way of maintaining a healthy weight that cannot trigger high blood pressure.

In addition to the above, drink less or avoid alcohol all together. This is because too much alcohol raises blood pressure with time. Another way of managing your pressure is by engaging in healthy exercise. Spend around half an hour daily for five days a week doing exercise. Embrace any ways or ideas that can improve your daily activities.
