Blood pressure is influenced by diet and lifestyles well as other factors such as obesity, diabetes, stress, insufficient potassium, calcium and magnesium intake and lack of physical activity.

Blood Pressure is the strength that pushes the blood through the arteries as the heart is pumps the blood. If this pressure is increased over a period of time it can cause major damage to your body. Which is why it is extremely important to monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis. This is especially important if it has ever been out of normal range.

There are many symptoms that may be experience when one has high blood pressure:

  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Chest Pain
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Pounding in your chest, neck and ears
  • Fatigue or confusion
  • Headaches
  • Vision Problems

Nearly 1/3 of people that have high blood pressure don’t even know it. They don’t experience any of these symptoms which is what makes this disease so dangerous.
