High blood pressure: the hidden killer

High blood pressure is considered the “silent disease” and should not be taken lightly, nor should it be ignored.

In April 2012, a dear friend had a stroke. He was hospitalized, in ICU for a few weeks, had a tracheotomy and afterward his life was never the same. The stroke had caused brain damage leaving him unable to do many of the things he loved on his own.

On May 16, 2013, he died of Hypertensive and Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease.

He was 63 years old. According to WebMD, arteriosclerosis is “One of the most serious health problems related to untreated high blood pressure,” which is plaque build-up in the arteries.⠀

Are you aware of the changes in the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology regarding blood pressure?

If your blood pressure is above 130/80, you are now considered to be at risk for HIGH blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is now considered 120/80 or lower, elevated is 120-129/80-89; stage one hypertension is now 130-139/80-89 and stage two hypertension is anything over 140/80.⠀

These changes will affect millions of people across America who will have to find ways to lower their blood pressure. Exercise is exceedingly important.

Now more than ever, it’s important to use the right supplements to help target these areas without the use of blood pressure medications and blood thinners.

My company manufactures a full line of heart healthy vitamins and supplements to help battle this in-going problem. I’m grateful for my company’s Peak Performance Pack, which has helped keep my numbers at optimal levels and is helping to reduce any risk of me developing heart disease.

It’s too late for my friend, but it’s not too late for me, and definitely not too late for you.
