What You Need to Know about the Relation Between Blood Pressure and Body Composition

Your heart pushes blood through a network of blood vessels called arteries in order for all of your muscles to get the oxygen that they need. As blood travels through this network, it gets pushed against the sides of the arteries. The strength of this pushing is what we call blood pressure. Check out this article!

Here are some changes that you can start implementing in your lifestyle now to lower your blood pressure:

  • Quit smoking
  • Limit alcohol
  • Eat a well-balanced diet
  • Manage stress
  • Keep track of your body composition
