Blood Pressure

If your blood pressure is high, it means that your arteries are under constant tension.

This tension damages arteries throughout the body, creating conditions where they can burst or where blood clots can form more easily, which could cause a devastating stroke.

Your body has the ability to help these damaged arteries heal, but you have to try to keep your blood pressure low.

Know your numbers have your blood pressure checked and if it is high, consult a doctor to help you manage this important risk factor.
