Reduce High Blood Pressure with Deep Breathing


Knowing you have High Blood Pressure actually spikes your pressure! Don’t panic, take a deep breath and relax. Yes, this simple exercise can bring down your pressure. And there is research to prove that blood pressure can be brought down with deep breathing. Find out how deep breathing really helps reduce blood pressure levels.


Researchers believe taking deep breaths daily can lower your high blood pressure. Deep breathing exercises help the body to regulate and control your blood pressure. The most obvious explanation would be that deep breathing relaxes the blood pressure. But the real and scientific reason is that deep breathing can actually break down the salt in your body, lowering the chances of pumping blood pressure.

Lack of exercise and poor breathing patterns adds pressure to the kidney to process the salt intake. Hence, when you breathe in slowly or practice deep breathing exercises you are breaking down this otherwise volatile build up of salt. High blood pressure increases your risk of stroke, heart diseases, kidney failure and blindness. Lower high blood pressure with exercise, healthy lifestyle and healthy diet to lead a normal happy life.
