your health tip of the day.


You are in charge of your body.

        life style choices that can lower your BLOOD PRESSURE:
-loose excess weight : for every 20 lbs you lose, you decrease your systolic bp by 5-20 mm Hg
-eat a low fat diet : low fat and rich in veggies & fruits, low fat diary products
-exercise daily : you don't have to run a marathon, just commit to 30 minutes daily of moving!
-limit sodium : consume no more than 2,400 mg a day (1500mg if you already have high blood pressure!)
-limit alcohol : or don't drink it at all! no more than 1 drink a day is recommended
