You’ve been bad.  Well, sort of.  You haven’t been exercising as much as you meant to, and decided not to be too strict with your diet.  Who could blame you?  We all have to stop and enjoy life a little, right?

But then you went to the doctor for a physical-good for you by the way-and found that your blood pressure was on the high side.  It happens to the best of us.  But rather than panicking about it, you decide to do a little research to figure out how you can manage this condition naturally.

First off, regular exercise is very important for overall health in general and really helps to strengthen the heart and to lower blood pressure.  If you haven’t exercised in a while, start gradually and build your way up to some kind of cardio program 4-5 days a week, as well as working in some light weight training.  If you find the gym mundane at best, bring an iPod or a good book to read while you’re using the machines.

Cutting back on salty foods and loosing a few pounds if you’re overweight can also help maintain your blood pressure right.  Some nutritional supplements boast heart healthy properties such as Omega-3 fatty acids and Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10.  In fact, recent research has revealed a possible link between CoQ10 supplementation and healthy blood pressure levels.

It’s okay to indulge a little as long as you compensate with some healthy habits such as exercise and proper nutrition and vitamin intake.  Have a happy and healthy Autumn!
