Walk to Lower Blood Pressure

Walking to Lower Blood Pressure A study conducted in Korea was presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine in May 2008 showing their findings and benefits of walking in connection with high blood pressure. This study found that walking only 40 minutes a day can greatly lower high blood pressure for anyone suffering from hypertension. Hypertension is a condition where your blood pressure readings are higher or equal to 140 over 90. With 23 men involved
in the study and half suffering from hypertension and the other half with normal readings of 120 over 80, more benefits of exercise have been discovered.

The researcher’s measured the men’s blood pressure after their 40 minute walk and four different sessions of a 10 minute brisk walk. When the term “brisk” is used this generally means the speed of about 3-4 miles per hour; very casual. Their blood pressure readings dropped considerably after each walking session. The top number in the blood pressure reading dropped an amazing 5 points after the 40 minute walk and 3 points following the shorter brisk walking sessions. The bottom number dropped consistently 2 points after each form of exercise.

When it comes to exercising on a regular basis there are more people who say they don’t have time to go to the gym or participate in an exercise program. If this sounds like you why not take the time for a walk each night after dinner? This is all it takes to help lower your blood pressure and maintain good health. The researcher’s involved in this study believe that these results can be maintained as long as the men involved continue with their walking. Walking offers more benefits than what this study has found. Dozens of studies have been done in the past looking closer at what a simple walk can do for our health.

Some of these additional benefits include:

· Reduce risk of heart disease and stroke.
· Reduce high cholesterol.
· Decrease the amount of body fat we carry.
· Maintain a healthy weight.
· Enhance our mental state.
· Increase bone density.
· Promote flexibility and coordination to reduce falls as we age.

This is just a small list of the many other benefits we can receive from a simple walk. You do not have to run for miles at the gym in order to remain healthy, all it takes is a brisk walk to reduce health risks and conditions. High blood pressure is the number one cause for many other conditions we suffer from as well. Although it may seem common and far from dangerous it can lead to other conditions when it is not treated from the beginning. Take control of your life and your health and enjoy a walk each and every day to lower your blood pressure levels.
