It's Never Too Late to Lower Your High Blood Pressure

Apr 6, 2008
No matter what age you may be, lowering your blood pressure is the best health investment you can make. Read this study to find out how it can make you 21% less likely to die.

A study was recently conducted to find out just how much difference it makes to lower blood pressure in elderly patients. The results were so dramatically clear that the study was halted early so that everyone participating could benefit.

Spread across 13 countries and 195 hospitals with 3,845 volunteers, the study was conducted on individuals with an average blood pressure of 173/91.

During the course of the study there was 64% drop in heart failure deaths. Death from cardiovascular events dropped 23%. Strokes went down by 30% and death from stroke went down by 39%. Because of these changes the overall mortality rate dropped by 21%. Over the four year study the average blood pressure was brought down to 150/61 from 173/91.

This study presents key evidence that life can be prolonged by keeping your blood pressure in a healthy range. It is quite apparent that keeping your blood pressure down should be a high health priority.

Did you know there are many, many things you can do to maintain healthy blood pressure? Here are the most basic and are a great starting point to keeping your blood pressure where it should be:

* Start thinking of ways to have fun while exercising. There are so many ways to push yourself and have a great time. Measuring a persons activity level is one of the primary ways to determine how long a person will live. So get off the couch, get out there and use your body.

* If you smoke your blood pressure will rise. The negative health effects of smoking are overwhelming. You are pumping poison in your body and over time it will add up. Blood pressure is one of the things that will continue to climb because of smoking and the damage caused by smoke is almost irreversible.

* Eat raw fruits and veggies. The more fresh foods you can eat the healthier you will be. At each meal try to work in at least one item that is good for your body.

Just following these three suggestions will go a long way. If you take care of your body it will pay you back for years to come. Check out my book for some great health info that will help you live a long and healthy life.
