Blood pressure is the force at which blood pumps from the heart into the arteries. A normal blood pressure reading is less than 120/80 mm Hg. When blood pressure is high, the blood moves through the arteries more forcefully. This puts increased pressure on the delicate tissues in the arteries and damages the blood vessels. Thatswhy, it's very important to manage your B.P before any big mishap.

So, today we will discuss some natural ways to combat high B.P-

1. Walk and exercise regularly

Regular exercise helps make your heart stronger and more efficient at pumping blood, which lowers the pressure in your arteries.

In fact, 150 minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking, or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise, such as running, per week can help lower blood pressure and improve your heart health

2. Reduce your sodium intake

Most guidelines for lowering blood pressure recommend lowering sodium intake. However, that recommendation might make the most sense for people who are salt-sensitive.

3.Drink less alcohol

Drinking alcohol in any quantity may raise your blood pressure. Limit your drinking to no more than one drink a day for women, two for men.

4. Eat more potassium-rich foods

Foods that are particularly high in potassium include:

*Vegetables, especially leafy greens, tomatoes, potatoes and 
sweet potatoes
*Fruit, including melons, bananas, avocados, oranges and 
*Dairy, such as milk and yogurt
*Tuna and salmon
*Nuts and seeds

5. Lose weight

If you're overweight, losing weight can make a big difference for your heart health.

6. Quit smoking

Every puff of cigarette smoke causes a slight, temporary increase in blood pressure. The chemicals in tobacco are also known to damage blood vessels.
Still, since both smoking and high blood pressure raise the risk of heart disease, quitting smoking can help reverse that risk.

7. Try meditation or deep breathing

While these two behaviors could also fall under "stress reduction techniques," meditation and deep breathing deserve specific mention.
Both meditation and deep breathing can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps slow your heart rate and lower blood pressure.

High blood pressure affects a large proportion of the world's population.

While drugs are one way to treat the condition, there are many other natural techniques that can help.

Controlling your blood pressure through the methods in this article may, ultimately, help you lower your risk of heart disease.
