High blood pressure for an extended period of time leads to two negative developments in the body

– The blood vessels get hardened to compensate for the extra pressure against their walls
– The heart must work overtime to circulate blood through the body

These two super critical things might lead to many problems in the body such as

• Stroke
• Kidney disease or even kidney failure
• Retinopathy or even vision loss
• Sexual dysfunction
• Myocardial infarction or heart attack

And, in addition, hypertension has no cure, only treatment. But the good thing is that there are several things that a person can do to lower blood pressure, and we talk about that in this video too.

So, stay strong, stay healthy and have normal blood pressure!
