Ask a question about this product

What is Hypertension or High Blood Pressure?       

 
Blood pressure is the force exerted by your heart against the resistance created by your arteries, keeping your blood flowing. Your blood pressure is high when the force is greater than necessary. When a person’s blood pressure is higher than normal, their heart works a lot harder to get the blood flow to their body.
 
A person can’t live without blood pressure. When a person dies of “shock”, it means that something has happened to cause a fatal drop in their blood pressure. Vital organs like the brain and kidneys are then starved of their life-giving source of oxygen, and are unable to function.
 
Blood pressure increases and falls with your activity levels.  During deep sleep, you need less oxygen, so blood pressure is usually lowest at night.

High Blood Pressure vs. Hypertension – Which One Do You Have?

A healthy person’s blood pressure usually fluctuates during the day, depending on your activity level, caffeine intake, whether you are under stress and so on. If you take your blood pressure after you’ve just had a fright or had a lot of coffee it will most likely be elevated. That’s not usually dangerous. Its when your blood pressure stays high for prolonged periods that it becomes dangerous. This is called hypertension. Contributing factors are: smoking, excessive drinking, obesity and high salt intake.

Should You Be Worried About Hypertension?

Hypertension is one of the leading causes of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and premature death. Cigarette smoking, high cholesterol and diabetes mellitus and hypertension constitute the cardiovascular risk profile. The biggest reason why hypertension is so dangerous is because it often has no symptoms.

What Should You Do About Hypertension?

Your doctor will be able to prescribe medicines that - if taken appropriately - should keep your hypertension under control and allow you to lead a normal lifestyle. It is important to take these pills even when you feel well, as hypertension is one of the leading causes of heart attack, stroke and kidney failure and does not always have symptoms.
