High Blood Pressure

Nearly half of adults in the United States have hypertension — blood pressure with a systolic reading above 130 mmHg & a diastolic reading above 80 mmHg — and among this population, only about 1 in 4 have their condition under control. It is common for blood pressure to rise and fall throughout the day, but when blood pressure remains high for an extended time, it can eventually cause a number of serious health concerns, including kidney damage and damage to arteries of the heart and brain.

The curated content below dives into the causes and effects of high blood pressure, the connection between blood pressure and uric acid, as well as effective strategies for reducing blood pressure. My hope is that it may serve as a helpful resource to support your ongoing longevity journey.

#194 – How fructose drives metabolic disease | Rick Johnson, M.D.
