Exercise and Blood Pressure

Here’s some encouraging news: a recent report shows that regular exercise significantly reduces blood pressure — in everybody — within just a few months. Your current weight, blood pressure, race, age, or if you exercise or not — it doesn’t matter.

Blood pressure decreases with exercise more than other natural methods like cutting back on salt.

If you don’t think about blood pressure, you should. Twenty-five percent of americans have high blood pressure, which dramatically increases your risk for heart attack and stroke. Even small reductions can make a huge difference in your health and longevity.

The blood pressure benefits are just another reason to start an aerobic exercise program. Now more than ever, the phrase “just do it” applies.
