High Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the term used to describe the amount of force required for the heart to pump blood around the body. While this may peak during physical or emotional stress, under normal conditions, your blood pressure should remain within a narrow range of normal limits.

If left uncontrolled, high blood pressure can cause damage to your arteries and your heart increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Lifestyle changes can be of great value in lowering blood pressure and these include exercising daily, reducing salt intake and of course eating a healthy diet. There are many natural remedies for high blood pressure. Herbs to lower blood pressure such as Hawthorn berry are available as supplements and have a long history of usage acting as cardiotonics which work to increase the efficiency of the heart muscle tissue to improve blood flow throughout the body.
