Reducing high blood pressure can have a variety of physical and mental benefits. healthy foods, exercise equipment, dietary supplements blood pressure monitors, and prescription medications are available in Costco warehouses and at costco.com

Most of us already know that high blood pressure (HBP)  is the root of many health issues such as heart disease stroke or kidney failure. More evidence is now showing that, in addition to those elements, high blood pressure in middle age can increase the risk of dementia in later life. A study published in The Lancet Neurology suggests that hypertension in people as young as 36 is linked to poor brain health later in life.

Lowering the pressure

The good news is that adopting healthy lifestyle changes can significantly lower blood pressure at naturally, even without medication, and may reduce the risk of these issues, from heart disease to dementia.

Keep it off.

A healthy weight is an effective way to lower blood pressure “Because there is more mass to pump blood through (when one is overweight), the heart works harder, and this can increase your blood pressure” says Doctor William Li, a physician, scientist, author and CEO of the Angiogenesis Foundation. Even 10 pounds of weight loss can reduce your blood pressure-according to a 2016 study published in the American Journal of Hypertension contributing to a drop in systolic and diastolic blood pressure by an average of 4.44 and 3.57 millimeters of mercury (mmHg), the standard unit of measurement for blood pressure), respectively.
