Know your risk of high blood pressure

High blood pressure is a ‘ticking time bomb’ if you don’t take action.

Here are four key risk factors you need to know…

Heart disease – Your risk of a heart attack or stroke increases by 92% with high blood pressure.

Dementia – You are 5x more likely to develop dementia if you have high blood pressure mid-life.

Lower life-expectancy – You are likely to die 5 years younger than people with healthy blood pressure.

Menopause – Your risk of hypertension increases during the perimenopausal period.

The solution to high blood pressure

Science shows that losing weight is the best thing you can do if you have high blood pressure. Dropping just 5-10% of your body weight can cut your risk by up to 65%.

That’s 5kg–10kg for a person weighing 100kg.

Incredibly, the average 50-year-old with hypertension can live three years longer by bringing their blood pressure down to ‘healthy’ levels, Harvard University researchers have shown.

You can do it the natural way without a lifetime on side-effect-ridden medication…

Our scientific approach

We drastically reduced the blood pressure of hypertensive clients through diet and exercise in just 96 days during a pilot study with Cambridge University researchers.

Our methods cut systolic blood pressure levels by over 20mmHg, on average, for the 135 clients with medically-diagnosed high blood pressure in the study.

Even with a 10mmHg reduction in blood pressure you can cut the risk of stroke, heart disease and heart failure by 20%, according to a NICE meta-analysis.

We achieved these remarkable health transformations with four simple principles…

4 steps to successfully lower your high blood pressure

There is no magic to it. You can dramatically reduce your blood pressure and add years to your life, naturally.

Healthy blood pressure is built on 4 key pillars we focus on with every personal training client with high blood pressure at Ultimate Performance…

1. Improve body composition – Obesity accounts for up to 75% of your risk profile. Losing and maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise cuts this dramatically.

2. Quality nutrition – Increasing potassium and lowering sodium intake can reduce blood pressure by 8-9 mmHg. Eat minimally-processed foods (low in sodium), fruit, vegetables and potassium-rich grains.

3. Improved sleep – Sleeping 5 hours compared to 7 hours increases blood pressure risk by 50%. Aim for 7-9 hours of good quality sleep per night.

4. Increased daily activity – Walking even 2,000 more steps a day reduces blood pressure by 4 mmHg. Resistance training at least 3x per week can reduce it by 11mmHg.
