High blood pressure, blood pressure supplementEver wonder what your body feels like when it suffers from high blood pressure? You don't know? Well guest what, neither do we.

 

The American Heart Association says it's a common misconception for people to experience symptoms of high blood pressure such as nervousness, sweating, difficulty sleeping or facial flushing. In fact, high blood pressure is a symptomless condition.

 

High blood pressure is when blood pumps through your arteries with too much force and pressure. The extra pressure makes your artery walls rough where fat and calcium build up. Over time, the artery walls narrow, causing blood to flow very slowly. It then becomes difficult for blood to properly distribute oxygen and nutrients to vital organs.

 

Without any real warning signs, your body could be at great risk for severe complications or death. Complications may not develop right away, but when you wait for the "symptoms" to appear, you could wind up with any or many of the following conditions.

 

Damage to the Arteries:

  • Aneurysm Artery damage and narrowing
  • Damage to the Heart:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Enlarged heart
  • Heart failure
  • Damage to the Brain:

  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Mild cognitive impairment
  • Damage to the Kidneys:

  • Kidney failure
  • Kidney scarring
  • Kidney artery aneurysm
  • Damage to the Eyes:

  • Eye blood vessel damage
  • Fluid buildup under the retina
  • Nerve damage
  •  

    All of the above are serious, life-altering and life-threatening conditions. Ask your doctor what a good blood pressure number is and how you can maintain it. Once you know, stick to a plan of healthy eating and exercising. For an added boost, try our healthy L-Arginine supplement.
