Sweat Equity

March 24, 2016

More than fifty million Americans are affected by hypertension.  It can lead to a laundry list of dangerous health conditions, including heart disease and stroke! The good news is that you can usually take care of the problem with the right diet and just a little bit of exercise.  Cut down on simple carbs and be sure to reduce your sodium intake. Plus, exercising as little as sixty to ninety minutes a week can do a lot more than you may think! A recent eight-week study shows that patients working out as little as an hour to an hour and a half per week cut their systolic blood pressure by as much as 12 points.  Diastolic blood pressure dropped by as much as 8 points. It's important to note that test subjects getting less than sixty minutes a week of exercise showed no reduction in blood pressure. That's a big health payoff for a little bit of effort
