Nearly half of Americans older than 20 have high blood pressure. And about 46% of them don't realize they have it.
High blood pressure (also known as hypertension) can put a lot of strain on your blood vessels, heart, brain, and kidneys. What's happening when you have high blood pressure is that your blood is flowing at a higher force in your arteries than it usually does.
This can be very dangerous since your heart has to work significantly harder to push blood out to your entire body. When you have consistent high blood pressure, it can increase your risk for certain health conditions, like heart disease or heart attacks.
COMMON CAUSES OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
High blood pressure typically develops over time. The leading factor for high blood pressure is living an unhealthy lifestyle. But there are certain things that can increase your risk for developing high blood pressure:
drinking excessive amounts of alcohol
having a history of high blood pressure
having chronic kidney disease
not exercising enough
eating an unhealthy diet
SYMPTOMS OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
Some symptoms of high blood pressure include:
abnormal heart rhythm
You may not always have symptoms if you have high blood pressure. In fact, most people don't have any symptoms at all. The only way to really know is to get your blood pressure checked.
If you do experience any of the above symptoms, consult your doctor.
HOW CAN I NATURALLY LOWER MY BLOOD PRESSURE?
Aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Consistent exercise can help lower your blood pressure by 5 to 8 mmHg.
Eating a healthy diet can help lower your blood pressure by up to 11 mmHg.
Smoking and drinking both raise your blood pressure quite a bit. If you can, cut them both out completely.
HOW IS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE RELATED TO URIC ACID?
Early hypertension is often associated with having high uric acid levels. People with high uric acid levels are also 40% more likely to develop high blood pressure than those who have normal uric acid levels.
So what can you do to help?
You can start by lowering your uric acid levels. In some people, reducing uric acid levels may help reduce blood pressure as well.
HOW CAN LIFETONES HELP?
Often times, supplements or medication can be the most effective way to help reduce uric acid levels.
