Lowering blood pressure

Lowering blood pressure with a personal trainer

As blood pressure climbs, the risk of heart disease and stroke accelerates. Unfortunately, blood pressure levels typically climb as men get older. But they don’t have to. In a study published in 2007, University of Minnesota researchers followed men and women 18 to 30 years old for up to 15 years. The more physically active the volunteers were, the lower their risk of developing hypertension. Working with a personal trainer will help you to exercise more effectively and teach you what foods will help you to start lowering blood pressure.
