As we get older our risk for hypertension increases. High amounts of salt, a lack of exercise and being overweight or obese are also other factors that can cause this. Hypertension is overall, an abnormally high blood pressure level.
Now, of course there are medications used to treat this, but to try and tackle things naturally first is always what I suggest.
Intermittent fasting has been shown in research to lower blood pressure.
If you have family history of high blood pressure or hypertension, take precautionary acts to fight this before it even happens!
