BLOOD PRESSURE SUPPORT from FLEX NUTRITION will help you keep healthy arterial function and may help maintain blood pressure already within the healthy normal range.
What exactly is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is a measure of the force against the walls of your arteries in response to the pumping of your heart.
The amount of blood being pumped and the flexibility of your arteries both influence that force. Your blood pressure can rise when either or both of these things happen:
Your arteries contain a large amount of blood
Your arteries lose some of their flexibility
If your arteries become less flexible and can't expand easily to handle the extra amount of blood flow, your blood pressure rises.
When your blood pressure rises, your heart has to work harder to keep blood flowing. Certain situations could cause this increased demand for a short time - like high- intensity training - but that's not an issue if you're healthy.
The problem is when it's continuous. Forcing your heart to pump hard without a break can place it under a great deal of stress.
And here's a fact you may not know about blood pressure. When your blood pressure is too high, even when within the normal range, your arteries can become stiffer, which makes your heart work harder - and your blood pressure goes even higher within the normal range.
