Mild to moderate forms of high blood pressure (hypertension) go without physical symptoms. Therefore people are often not aware of the warning signs of this disease. Left untreated and in conjunction with other risk factors such as high blood cholesterol or elevated blood sugar, high blood pressure may lead to cardiovascular diseases and could increase the risk of stroke or heart attack. It is estimated that one in every four adults living in the industrialized part of the world is affected by raised blood pressure. Risk rises with age and is closely linked to a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits.
Lifestyle changes including a balanced diet, coupled with increased physical activity are the first line of defence against high blood pressure. Benolea® with its heart health promoting properties offers a great support for an optimal diet.
