What is Healthy Blood Pressure?

Healthy blood pressure is a reading less than 120/80 mmHg.

  • Systolic blood pressure is the high number (120)
  • Diastolic blood pressure is the low number (80)

Systolic represents when your heart beats and pumps, pushing blood through your arteries, which increases the pressure. Diastolic represents when your heart relaxes so it can refill with blood for the next pump.

The healthy blood pressure reading (less than 120/80) is the same for both men and women.

Fiber promotes healthy blood pressure

When it comes to fibre in your diet most people would equate that with cleaning out your intestinal tract and having a healthy bowel movement. But did you also know that besides also lowering your cholesterol fibre can help with healthy blood pressure? Researchers tallied the results dietary fiber had on blood pressure and found that a high-fiber diet was associated with a significant reduction in blood pressure levels among people with high blood pressure or hypertension.

According to one study increasing fibre results in changing the gut flora in your intestines thus decreasing your risk of heart disease. The bacteria in your gut actually may influence blood flow through your arteries. When you add more fiber to your diet, microbes can thrive and produce more short chain fatty acids, which can help protect the body against a slew of health conditions.

According to Lead researcher Francine Marques, “We need to understand more about how to prevent high blood pressure. Because it often has no symptoms, it can go undetected for years or decades – and by the time it’s discovered, it’s sometimes too late. We know that diets high in vegetables and fruit are linked to healthier blood pressure, and we believe this may be through the bacteria in our gut.”

So by eating such foods as avocados, asian pears, berries, coconut, figs, and a host of other delicious foods to our diet we can lower our blood pressure.
