High Blood Pressure, Chlorella, and Spirulina

Hypertension (aka, High Blood Pressure) is an enormous health problem in today’s world. It is especially a large problem in the United States, where our lifestyle choices, over the last 100 years, have become increasingly disastrous to our health. According to the American Heart Association, “74.5 million people in the United States age 20 and older have High Blood Pressure.” That seems like a ridiculously high number and if we stay on the same track that number is bound to increase. This is a huge issue in America today because hypertension is a risk factor for myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, arterial aneurysm, stroke, and chronic kidney failure. In general, high blood pressure leads to a shortened life span!!!

What is Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)?

To start off, we need to understand what blood pressure is. As defined by PubMed, blood pressure “is a measurement of the force against the walls of your arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body.” Your blood pressure consists of your systolic and diastolic pressure. This is why there are two numbers associated with blood pressure. Your systolic pressure is the measurement representing the pressure your blood is exerting on your blood vessels during the contraction of your heart (the higher number). The start of systole is when you hear the Lub sound of the Lub-Dub (Lub-Dub is the sounds the heart makes when it is beating). Your diastolic pressure is the measurement representing the pressure your blood is exerting on your blood vessels during the relaxation of your heart in between contractions. The start of diastole is the Dub of the Lub-Dub sound.

Now, Hypertension is a cardiovascular problem where your blood pressure is elevated on a daily basis. This means your systolic and diastolic pressures are higher than the normal. This normal blood pressure is important to understand. By normal it really means the average. We are all unique and your blood pressure is going and meant to be different than the next person. It is important, when determining if you have high blood pressure, to understand what is your uniquely healthy blood pressure.
