A new study published in the Journal of Gerontology Series A has found that eating 200g of blueberries every day for a month can lead to an improvement in blood vessel function and a decrease in systolic blood pressure in healthy people. Researchers from King’s College London studied 40 healthy volunteers for one month. They […]Continue Reading ...
Thirty minutes of morning exercise lowers blood pressure for the rest of the day among older men and women who are overweight or obese. And women who take brief, frequent breaks from sitting throughout the day can enhance the blood pressure benefits of morning exercise even more, according to new research published in the American […]Continue Reading ...
CBD was found to raise pressure inside the eye of male mice up to 8 hours after exposure to the substance. This chart shows a rise in pressure after 1 hour and 4 hours in mice exposed to CBD versus an unexposed control group.

Dean hopes his finding will lead to better measures of blood pressure. Credit: Peter Mathew New blood pressure categories are helping to inform the development of more accurate measurement devices, following a discovery by Tasmanian researchers. Blood pressure subtleties are being missed by the current cuff measure, according to a recent study led by Dean Picone […]Continue Reading ...
A team of Vanderbilt University Medical Center researchers, working with the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA), has discovered genetic associations with blood pressure that could guide future treatments for patients with hypertension. The study, an international effort using data from sources including the VA Million Veteran Program (MVP) and United Kingdom (UK) Biobank, is […]Continue Reading ...
Exposure to certain chemicals such as phthalates, parabens or Bisphenol A could be associated with a decrease in blood pressure during pregnancy.

There’s more evidence that a high-fat diet is bad for both younger males and females, but exactly how it’s harmful may differ between the sexes, scientists report. While they hypothesized that high-fat fare would be harder on males, they found that in just four weeks both young male and female rats experienced comparable increases in […]Continue Reading ...
According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 6 – 8% of pregnant women experience hypertension. High blood pressure during pregnancy is associated with a number of risks to the woman and fetus, including low-birth weight infants, preterm birth, problems with the placenta, heavy bleeding, heart defects and other congenital anomalies, and in […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Scientists have pinpointed cells in the immune system that could be key to tackling high blood pressure. The findings also shed light on current medications that could increase risk of the disorder, which affects more than 12 million people in the UK. High blood pressure—or hypertension—is a leading cause of life-threatening […]Continue Reading ...
Intensive blood pressure lowering safely reduced the risk of bleeding in the brain in ischemic stroke patients being treated with clot-busting drugs, but did not improve post-stroke recovery, according to late breaking science presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference 2019, a world premier meeting for researchers and clinicians dedicated to the science […]Continue Reading ...
Hypertension is abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries, which are the blood vessels that carry blood from the to the rest of the body. As the heart beats, it forces blood through the arteries to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the rest of the body. The strength of the blood pushing against the artery […]Continue Reading ...
