High Blood Pressure

The Silent Killer... Control It And Live

If you’re reading this, there is a 1 in 3 chance you are suffering from high blood pressure.

High Blood PresssureAccording to the CDC over 65 million adults in the United States have high blood pressure.

For over 300,000 Americans, high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, was cited as the primary or contributing cause of death.

If you have high blood pressure, it should be taken very seriously because it can cause serious health issues including death. High blood pressure is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease, heart attack, congestive heart failure, stroke, and kidney failure just to name a few.

What is High Blood Pressure?

Before we can explain high blood pressure, you must first understand blood pressure. Blood pressure measures the force of your blood against your artery walls.

If you have high blood pressure the force of your blood pushing against your arteries as your heart pumps is greater than normal. The constant stress against your arterial walls can cause arterial damage and have devastating impacts on your body.

You should monitor your blood pressure regularly to ensure your blood pressure stays below 140/90 mmHg. If your blood pressure is high, the walls of your blood vessels are being overstretched and damaged. This constant pressure is scarring and narrowing your arteries.
