A good heart these days is hard to find. Poor health can transform people’s personalities as well as their bodies. Good natured people are attractive; be kind, have good values, and are personable. Hearty people are loud, vigorous, and cheerful. They appear to enjoy life, but image and perceptions can be deceptive. Many people with poor nutrition suffer from poor health, in particular heart conditions. Blood pressure has a major impact on your heart. If you, and the ones you love, want to age gracefully then fasting is one way to lower your blood pressure.
High and low blood pressure
Your heart health is important. Low blood pressure is as dangerous as high blood pressure. Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of your blood pushing against your artery walls when it travels from your heart to the rest of your body. Blood pressure below 120/80 is considered to be normal. Low blood pressure is generally considered lower than 90/60. High blood pressure increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Low blood pressure increases your risk of dizziness, fainting and damage to your heart and brain.
Diet, fasting and blood pressure
Many people wonder how eating, or not eating, affects your heart health. You can influence your blood pressure through your diet. If you have high blood pressure, you can lower it by changing what you eat. Reducing the saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet and increasing the vegetables, fruit, low-fat dairy and whole grains will reduce your blood pressure. Reducing sodium, even by a small amount, can also lower blood pressure, even by a small amount, can reduce your blood pressure. So can fasting. Try discussing fasting with your doctor before trying it.
Check your blood pressure
Monitoring your blood pressure is an efficient way to track your heart health. If you check your blood pressure at home, there are several factors that can affect your blood pressure readings. The best time to check your blood pressure is in the morning, before eating. Take your blood pressure before your regular, gentle exercise, or you might get an elevated reading. Try checking your blood pressure two, or even three, times to ensure accuracy.
Nutrition supplements and fasting
