Maintaining ideal blood pressure levels is a key step toward improving your cardiovascular health. High blood pressure, or hypertension, places you at a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, heart failure, and other serious health complications. Consider making an appointment at your local hospital to speak with your physician about your blood pressure. If you do have high blood pressure, your doctor can help you learn about effective treatment plans to bring your levels down to an ideal range.
