and Avoid Dangerous High Blood
by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) According to the American Heart Association, one out of every three adults suffers with elevated blood pressure. That means that at least one third of our population is at risk of heart trouble. Fortunately high blood pressure can be corrected with common sense, simple dietary and lifestyle changes and natural remedies.
Two of the first areas to look at for correcting high blood pressure are diet and exercise. Artery clogging trans-fats, processed meats and other items in the SADS diet of most Americans often lead to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems. Switching to a healthy diet can lower high blood pressure and prevent it from occurring in the future. Likewise, physical exercise helps lower and prevent high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. The combination of good diet and physical activity works even better.
Researchers at the University of Aukland came to a simple conclusion after reviewing 22 blood pressure studies: Physical activity lowers blood pressure. Being more active is likely the best thing you can do to lower blood pressure.
Several studies have found that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps lower elevated blood pressure. Fiber can help. A good diet, along with physical activity also helps drop excess weight. In one three-year study, people who lost just ten pounds reduced their risk of high blood pressure by two-thirds.
Thus, if you eat sensibly, lose ten pounds and get regular exercise or physical activity (such as brisk walks or, better still, swimming), you have a good chance of avoiding blood pressure problems for life.
