High blood pressure or hypertension is a medical condition characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries. High blood pressure is also a condition in the cluster of metabolic syndrome that increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Although at the early stage, high blood pressure usually does not cause symptoms, some patients in extreme cases may experience dizziness and light head, shortness of breath, nosebleeds, flushing, chest pain and visual changes.
Underlying medical conditions such as kidney disease and long term stress are associated with high blood pressure.
* Heart attack is casued by damages arteries due to high blood pressure that leads to the blockage or limited blood flow to the heart muscle.
* Stroke, damage blood vessels in the brain may be clogged and burst.
If you current taking hypertensive medicine, please make sure you know all the side effects for the preventive measure.
Some researchers also found that excessive energy intake and obesity are major causes of hypertension.
High sodium chloride intake strongly predisposes to hypertension".
"Increased alcohol consumption may acutely elevate blood pressure. High intakes of potassium, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and protein, along with exercise and possibly vitamin D, may reduce blood pressure".
With an aim to find a potential ingredient for the treatment of hypertension, researchers investigated the inhibitory activities of the navy bean by preparation of navy bean milk (NBM) subjected to fermentation of four lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strains, namely, Lactobacillus helveticus MB2-1, Lactobacillus plantarum B1-6, and Lactobacillus plantarum 70810.
