Hypertension is diagnosed when systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mmHg and diastolic is greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg. Blood pressure tends to increase while aging. So how can we lower high blood pressure?
Scientists have proven that changes in lifestyle plays a very important role in regulation of blood pressure. It is recommended to reduce salt intake, stop smoking, eat more vegetables, exercise regularly and control stress. Here are 3 other tips that will help you.
Eat fish. It was found that oily fish such as sardines, mackerel, salmon reduce moderate increase in blood pressure.
Eat apples. Apple peal is rich in pectin and flavonoids, fiber that lowers cholesterol and protects blood vessels from getting narrower.
Be attentive. Scientific studies have shown that regular meditation can help manage hypertension. So create your own rituals: carefully comb your hair or rub cream on your hands or feet. Repeat your created mantras with your eyes closed. Being attentive means listening to your feelings (touch, smell, sound).
