Herbs for Hypertension

By Kapiva Editorial

Brace yourself for a grim statistic. 1 in every 3 Indian adults suffers from High Blood Pressure, also known as Hypertension. It’s rather alarming, considering the many implications.

What is Hypertension?

So, what exactly is Hypertension and what’s all the hype around it? Well, it refers to the condition where the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high. Your blood pressure fluctuates all the time, depending on what kind of activity you’re involved in, regulating itself to your heart’s needs. So you can say you have High Blood Pressure when your blood pressure is consistently and persistently higher than normal, all the time.

If your blood pressure reading is under 120/80mmHg, it is considered ideal or normal. Readings above 120/80mmHg and up to 139/89mmHg are in the normal to high normal range.

Often referred to as the “silent killer”, Hypertension takes lives without providing any warning. It damages the artery walls, leading to cardiac arrest. In certain cases, it also impacts vital organs like the liver and kidneys.

Causes of Hypertension

Most baffling is the fact that the exact causes of Hypertension are still unknown. Yet, we attribute few cases of them to:

  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Diet consisting of high amounts of salt
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Stress
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Dysfunctional kidneys

It’s a tough lifestyle for those suffering from Hypertension. The constant need to be under medication and lead a disciplined life can sometimes be unnerving.
