High Blood pressure is defined as anything higher than 120/80 (normal). When it is high, the heart has to work harder. The higher pressure will likely damage vessels to vital organs such as the kidneys, heart and the brain. It is also known as hypertension.
HypertensionSymptoms and Causes
Quite often, people have no symptoms but when they do it has to be very high. Symptoms could include headaches, dizziness, Blurred vision, Nausea and nosebleeds but these symptoms are rare.
Blood pressure increases SLOWLY over time due to many factors which include bad eating habits, stress, cholesterol, no exercise, smoking and being over weight. It typically goes un-noticed, this is why it is also called a "silent killer." If it is untreated you can have serious effects, and could possibly lead to death.
Blood pressure monitoring
People who have hypertension typically do not know it until it is measured. There are numerous home monitors that are excellent which I will cover in another article on my blog. Until then go to your doctor or pharmacist. Most companies have nurses on site, pay them a visit during your lunch, it is free.
Fish Oil supplements
Fish Oil works on more than one front, firstly it helps in normalizing cholesterol levels (associated with hypertension) and the Omega-3 fatty acids in the fish oil will make the blood vessels more flexible. This in turn will lower the resistance to arterial flow that causes high blood pressure.
Taking ultra refinished Fish Oil and combining it with some diet changes will take approximately 30 days until you see a changes. Start with the recommended dosages on the bottle. I will cover more on modifying your diet in later articles.
Fish oil supplements will be even more effective when combined with changes in diet and activity levels. Make sure that you choose the best fish oil supplements.
