Home Remedy To Manage High Blood Pressure
Blood Pressure is the pressure in which the blood pumps from heart into the arteries. A healthy blood pressure reading is less than 120/80 mmHg. If this pressure is high i.e., when it is above 140/90 mm Hg, the increased force of blood flow strain the arterial walls causing them to become scarred and damaged and this condition is termed as High Blood Pressure/Hyper tension often known as the ‘Silent Killer’ as many people are unaware that they are affected by this, as it may not have visible symptoms. But major symptoms include mild headaches, dizziness, nosebleeds, shortness of breath and vision problems.
