Health Tips for Controlling Hypertension (high blood pressure)

1. Lessen your salt intake

1. Lessen your salt intake
Studies have shown that higher sodium (salt) intake is associated with higher blood pressure. If you are at risk for high blood pressure, you might want to consider limiting your salt intake. Preparing your own low-sodium meals instead of buying ready-made canned food, snack foods, fast food, etc. can be helpful. Instead of seasoning with salt, use other spices available in your kitchen. Also begin to read labels and become aware of how much sodium you are taking in each day. The average American consumes 6,900 to 9,000 mg of sodium per day, while the recommended dosage is only 500 mg.

Health tip of the day:
When taking antibiotics, take all of the prescribed medicine. Don't stop when you are feeling better, because infections can come back when the medication is cut off early.
