67 million people have high blood pressure in America

 What we already knew:

  • Risk of CVD (Cardio Vascular Disease) doubles for each incremental increase in SBP of 20 mmHg or DBP of 10 mmHg.
  • Aerobic exercise training leads to reduction in resting BP of 5-7 mmHg in those with hypertension.

New studies show:

  • Using salt substitutes can decrease blood pressure
  • 80% of sodium Americans intake comes from packaged, processed and restaurant foods.
  • Home cooking is a great way to control your sodium intake
  • Exercise can slow down the inevitable increase in blood pressure as you age.
  • Those who have proper protein intake are 40% less likely to develop high blood pressure
  • A combination of a high protein and high fiber intake can even lower the risk for hypertension
  • Consuming flaxseed daily may help reduce high blood pressure
