Blood Pressure Support
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a common condition in which the pressure of your blood against your blood vessel walls poses a risk to your health. Over time, high blood pressure can damage your blood vessels and put you at a greater risk for heart attack or stroke. High blood pressure is a condition that often carries no symptoms and can go undetected for years. Some studies suggest more than 1 in 5 adults worldwide have raised blood pressure.
Blood pressure is a measurement with two numbers: 1. Systolic blood pressure (the upper number) shows the pressure against your artery walls during a contraction of your heart (heartbeat). A value >120 is considered elevated. 2. Diastolic blood pressure (the lower number) shows the pressure against your artery walls in between heartbeats. A diastolic value >80 is considered high.
Due to its prevalence, many people are interested in using natural supplements to help improve their blood pressure, either along with prescription blood pressure medication or to avoid taking these medications altogether.
Below are some supplements that might help with blood pressure control:
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin D
