High blood pressure, also known as hypertension is a very widespread condition – affecting almost one in three adults in the USA! High blood pressure is defined as being above “normal”. (lower than 120/80 mmHg) In serious cases it can lead to heart attack, stroke and numerous other conditions.
High blood pressure can have numerous causes but is associated with age, genetic predisposition, and numerous “unhealthy lifestyle factors” such as being overweight, stress, high salt intake, alcohol, smoking and lack of physical activity. High blood pressure can also be an indicator of other underlying conditions and so professional medical advice should be sought.
The first step typically suggested is to sort out any unhealthy lifestyle issues. Prescription medications are often taken to manage the symptoms of hypertension, however these are not considered a permanent cure.
We discovered a great page at Nature Hacks which lists 5 herbs that are considered to be valuable in lowering blood pressure, together with some valuable details about the herbs and their use.
