    Experts mainly divide the causes of hypertension in two categories; those which are out of our control and those which can be controlled be putting in some effort. There are some undeniable facts in our lives which we don’t like and which cannot be changed no matter what we do. Our growing age, our looks, our financial position can cause us severe attacks of hypertension. But there is no need to worry as there are even more causes that can be controlled. Many people think that smoking can cause damage to their lungs, but there are more reasons to quit it as it also causes high blood pressure.

    It has also been observed that on average those people who are overweight also have high blood pressure as they are constantly worrying about finding new ways to lose weight. In fact, hypertension aggravates their situation and their medication stops having its effects. If you want to ease your hypertension problem then you should direct your efforts from staying away from smoking and alcohol.

    Doctors also suggest that potassium ans some other important nutrients also help decrease blood pressure, as their scarcity in the body is one of the causes of hypertension.

    So, rather than taking good-for-nothing pills to sort your hypertension, you better start addressing problems which are its cause. By adopting regular exercise, refraining from smoking and taking healthy diet you can considerably lower your blood pressure.
