Healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of developing hypertension
Mayo clinic reports that though you have a normal blood pressure, you may develop hypertension later in your life, which can be controlled by maintaining a healthy life style. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 mm Hg, which fluctuates depending on your age and life style. Healthy life style can be maintained by having active physical activity or daily exercise or walk for 30 minutes a day which helps to loose weight and control blood pressure, maintain a less salt content in food, eat lot of healthy and non-fat foods such as green vegetables and fruits. Reduce your obesity by maintaining a correct Body Mass Index, which reduces the risk of heart attacks and hypertension. The news article advises that maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise, low fat healthy food and minimum alcohol control reduces the risk of developing hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.
