Blood pressure is the measure of the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. The heart pumps blood into the arteries (blood vessels), which carry the blood throughout the body. High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is dangerous because it makes the heart work harder to pump blood out to the body and contributes to hardening of the arteries, or atherosclerosis, to stroke, kidney disease, and to the development of heart failure.
The exact causes of high blood pressure are not known, but several factors and conditions may play a role in its development, that includes: smoking, being overweight or obese , lack of physical activity, too much salt in the diet, too much alcohol consumption, stress, older age, genetics family history of high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease and adrenal and thyroid disorders. Newer scientific research is associating nutritional deficiencies and gut health including disturbed gut flora with blood pressure issues.
Following the diet along with 30-40 minutes of exercise will help in managing the high blood pressure. Maintaining the right weight, waist measurement and addressing nutritional deficiencies can go a long way in management of high blood pressure.
