Lowering blood pressure may be within your power. In many cases doctors do not know what causes blood pressure to rise. Fortunately, though, there are several different medications that can help lower blood pressure.
But lowering blood pressure with medication is usually the second thing we try. Our first efforts in the battle against hypertension should involve lifestyle modifications.
Though the underlying cause of high blood pressure may not be known it is clear that the daily choices we make help determine our heart health. Years of bad choices take their toll on our hearts. Reversing some of these choices is the beginning of heart health recovery and lowering blood pressure.
So the first place to start is with…
Many people have successfully battled hypertension by following a diet rich in…
Coronary heart disease is not only the #1 killer of men and women in developed countries like the US; it also contributes to higher blood pressure.
You can keep your saturated fats down by using low fat dairy products and by reducing the amounts of red meat you eat. Especially the fattier kinds. In addition you should limit the amount of sweets you eat. Sweets raise triglycerides and promote atherosclerosis.
For years you have known that using too much salt increases blood pressure. Research has demonstrated that reducing dietary sodium intake lowers blood pressure whether you are maintaining a healthy diet or not.
Limiting sodium is a must.

Here’s a question for you…
Are you sick and tired of just not
Are there health issues – in addition to your heart health – that concern you? Like…
Anxiety? Or not sleeping well? Or joint pain? Or low energy? Or poor digestion? Or weight gain? Or stress? Why do so many people suffer from these symptoms and others? Those nagging health issues that seem so difficult to define.
Did you know that these health problems – as well as more serious chronic diseases – can be the result of …

If you can get up and exercise… do it. Exercise and lowering blood pressure go hand in hand. Being active reduces your risk of heart disease and lowers blood pressure. And the bonus is, it also helps you lose weight.
Being overweight causes your blood pressure to increase. Losing just 10 pounds can lower your blood pressure. Being overweight also increases your likelihood of developing high cholesterol and diabetes.
Research continues to demonstrate that moderate alcohol consumption is good for heart health. The exception is that alcohol is easily converted to triglycerides. If you have high triglycerides you should watch your alcohol intake.
Too much alcohol can also raise blood pressure and make you gain weight. If you are a heavy drinker you are more likely to have hypertension. You might also be harming your heart, liver, and brain. Approach alcohol consumption with moderation.
Unlike drinking alcohol in moderation, smoking does nothing to promote heart health.
Nothing!Though smoking does not directly raise blood pressure, it does injure blood vessel walls and promote coronary heart disease. Coronary heart disease is deadly and it causes blood pressure to rise.
A healthy diet is not just about what to avoid. There are some things that should be consumed in abundance for optimal heart health. For example,Omega-3 fatty acids are recommended by the American Heart Association for anyone with high triglycerides and/or documented coronary heart disease.
But Omega-3 has also been shown to have a positive influence on blood pressure.

Though there are many different medications available, ACE inhibitors are becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of hypertension.Peptides – naturally occurring compounds – are also increasingly being used to lower blood pressure.
There are a number of studies demonstrating that fish sourced peptides possess the same ACE inhibiting characteristics as ACE inhibiting drugs without the potential side-effects. Consequently many people are choosing this natural alternative to drug therapy. If you would like to learn more about ACE inhibiting drugs and peptides please use the link below.

There are a number of natural substances that can work together to help lower your blood pressure. Some of these are green tea extract, garlic, various herbs, niacin, folic acid, and vitamin-B12. You can use the link below for a great choice.
If you are serious about lowering your blood pressure - and I hope you are – start with yourself. Make whatever modifications necessary to get your blood pressure back to normal. If medications are necessary then take them. But start with discipline.
Watch your diet, stop smoking and get some exercise. If ACE inhibitors help you then consider taking fish peptides as a natural addition. Also, since Omega-3 reduces coronary heart disease risk and lowers blood pressure you should get plenty. Eat plenty of cold-water oily fish and take high quality Omega-3 supplements.
