That’s why doctors say blood pressure as a “silent killer”. How to come out of this problem? There are simple steps to control blood pressure.

First make sure that your blood pressure is less than 140/90 mm Hg. If you have diabetes it is advised to control your sugar level and monitor blood pressure regularly.

Stop or reduce continuous smoking which leads good blood circulation. Reduce stress level by making your mind clear. Take meditation correctly.
