Needless to say, staying healthy is very essential to a happy life! To attain this goal, we have to be mindful of the choices and decisions we make, especially on what we eat or drink, or our daily habits.
Our decisions today have a significant effect on whether we prevent or manage the risk of acquiring certain illnesses such as osteoporosis, cancer, and hypertension in the future.
It would do as well if we know a thing or two about a certain disease, such as hypertension which is a “silent killer.”
In a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), most people who have hypertension (also called high blood pressure) are unaware of it since they may not experience any warning symptoms. That is why it is important to have your blood pressure regularly checked by a healthcare professional who can make an overall assessment of your health and what you can do about it.
How do you know if you have hypertension? Your blood pressure is considered hypertensive if the upper number (systolic blood pressure) constantly measures ≥140 mmHg and/or if the lower number (diastolic blood pressure) reads ≥90 mmHg. The disease is linked to many health conditions that can be prevented, such as heart disease, stroke, and even kidney failure.
Hypertension is a lifestyle disease. You are more likely to develop high blood pressure if you frequently eat foods with lots of fat, sugar, and salts. Those who live a sedentary lifestyle, drink lots of alcohol and smoke regularly are more prone to get the illness.
According to a study from the Philippine Heart Association (PHA), some characteristics commonly found among hypertensives regardless of age were higher waist circumference and higher BMI (body mass index). The WHO adds that if you are 65 years old and above, you are more at risk for the disease. In the Philippines, hypertension prevalence is at 72% among the elderly. So it would be wise to make some health adjustments to your lifestyle since blood pressure actually increases as you age.
One way to prevent or manage the risk for hypertension is good nutrition! Eat more fruits and vegetables, and consume fewer salts, fats, and alcohol. You don’t necessarily have to eat less food—rather, you can just replace unhealthy food with those that are more nutritious.
Avoid cigarette smoking, and add some physical activity such as walking or other exercises in your daily routine to get your heart muscles pumping. Don’t forget to also manage your stress and get enough sleep so that your body is able to recover and prepare for the next day.
It is also very important to support your health and increase your defense against diseases with food supplements such as Organique Acai Premium Blend. This “authentic superfood supplement” is a mix of antioxidants such as anthocyanin, as well as vitamins such as Vitamin A and B. Anthocyanins have been found to have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce your risk of hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases.
