DIET AND LIFESTYLE TIPS TO MANAGE OR PREVENT HYPERTENSION
Hypertension means High blood pressure. Our tissues and organs need oxygen and nutrition to survive. It is provided by the blood flowing through the circulatory system of our body. It includes Heart, Blood vessels, etc. When the heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through a blood vessels network, including arteries, veins and capillaries. While flowing through these blood vessels, blood exerts the pressure on their walls, measured as blood pressure. This pressure (blood pressure) results from two forces: The first force (systolic pressure) occurs when the heart pumps out the blood into the arteries that are part of the circulatory system. The second force (diastolic pressure) is created when the heart rests between heartbeats. That is why blood pressure measurement always has to values one is upper (Systolic) & one is lower (Diastolic).
