High Blood Pressure Diet Guidelines

Submitted by admin on Fri, 07/12/2019 - 15:43

Blood pressure reflects the amount of blood your heart pumps and the resistance it meets in your arteries: the more blood, and the narrower and more rigid your arteries (healthy vessels are elastic), the higher your blood pressure.
