4 Ways to Save Yourself from High Blood Pressure
by Alesha Wilson
High blood pressure is a condition that is usually encountered by people in their elder years. However, this doesn’t mean younger people are safe from spiking blood pressure. If you want to be safe from both high blood pressure and high glucose levels, here are things you need to remember:
- Avoid fatty foods, consume healthy fats instead. Your blood vessels will not be able to pump blood in and out of your heart and all over your body if the veins are clogged with fats. This can lead to a condition called atherosclerosis, and could possible advance to stroke.
- Cleanse your body regularly. Knowing the main cause of high blood pressure, you need to make sure that you are removing as much unused calories as possible. What better way to do this by detoxifying the body? Aside from getting rid of toxins, you are also keeping a healthy liver, kidneys, and other organs.
- Have regular exercise. Burning fat is also done through exercise. It is necessary that you keep an active lifestyle so that you do not develop further sicknesses including joint pains and inflammation.
- Keep away from sugary foods. Too much sugar is bad for your blood, and sugar contains calories. It’s not only plain sugar you need to watch out for. There are also sugar substitutes that spike up your blood sugar such as aspartame. Meanwhile, maltitol and xylitol supposedly do not increase your sugar levels, but they might cause an upset stomach.
There are lots of healthy food options you could try. Make sure that you are aware of the ingredients of the food you are eating to avoid unnecessary calories that might clog up your veins.
