Two Ways To Control High Blood Pressure


Salt isn't the only ingredient that can send your bloood pressure soaring to dangerously  high levels. New research concentrating on high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) shows sugar may havev a similar effect. The study, which appears in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, focused on foods such as soda, fruit punch, cookies, candy and chocolate that contain high-fructose corn syrup and other added sugars. Lifestyle plays an important role in treating your high blood pressure. If you successfully control your blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle, you may avoid, delay or reduce the need for medication.


Exercise regularly

Regular physical activity — at least 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by 4 to 9 milli-meters of mercury (mm Hg). And it doesn't take long to see a difference. If you haven't been active, increasing your exercise level can lower your blood pressure within just a few weeks.


Eat a healthy diet

Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg. This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet.
