Blood pressure lowering beet radish juice

This blood pressure lowering beet radish juice is packed with potent natural foods that are known to fight hypertension.

Hypertension or high blood pressure, is also called arterial hypertension. It is a medical condition. The blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. Consequently, the heart pumps harder to circulate blood through the blood vessels.

Blood pressure is summarized by two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed between beats (diastole).

High blood pressure is considered a silent killer, because it often does not produce symptoms.

According to the American Heart Association, when high blood pressure remains untreated, it can lead to serious conditions including stroke, vision loss, heart failure, heart attack, and kidney disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that: “67 million American adults (31%) have high blood pressure—that’s 1 of every 3 adults.”
