Stress and Blood Pressure

Ever wonder how the daily stressors of life can impact your blood pressure? Or if there are ways that you can lower both without taking prescribed medication? Well, keep reading to find out the answer to both.

The first thing to understand is that the adrenal glands are the real factor behind blood pressure and stress being intertwined. That being said, when you become stressed, sodium fluid levels become off in-turn elevating blood pressure. The good news is that you don’t have to run off to the Doc for the latest and greatest meds to lower these levels.

Here are some tips on how you can naturally lower both.

  • Take some magnesium caps before you go to sleep. We also us a cream to rub behind your legs before bed that we’ve found to be more effective.
  • Meditate. Try to start with 10 minutes a day and work up from there. It’s important to make time for this. To clear your head.
  • Most importantly, HYDRATE! Water is king here. Half your body weight in ounces. Yes, everyday.

That’s it. t’s your health, man up!
