Lower Your Risk of High Blood Pressure

Healthy Exercise

1. Exercise

Regular exercise has been known to lower blood pressure in some people. It can also be healthy in many other ways including helping with weight management, lowering cholesterol, and reducing stress. Make an exercise schedule for yourself and spend at least 30 minutes a day 5 times a week running, walking, cycling, or doing Pilates. There are also special yoga classes which help lower blood pressure.

2. Monitor your Weight

Those who are overweight may be more likely to suffer from problems with blood pressure than those who are of normal weight. If you are overweight, try to lose a few pounds in order to improve blood flow by exercising and eating a healthier diet.

3. Limit your salt intake

Reducing your intake of salt and other forms of sodium may help control your blood pressure. On the other hand, eating foods with more potassium, magnesium, and calcium can also lower your blood pressure.

4. Limit your alcohol intake

High amounts of alcoholic beverages will increase your blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure, it's a good idea to consider not drinking alcohol. If you do choose to drink, be sure to monitor your intake. If you are drinking, limit yourself to no more than 2 drinks a day, and 9 drinks a week.

5. Stress Less

High stress levels will increase your blood pressure. It's important to relax and give yourself time to wind down before bed in order to reduce your stress, thus reducing your blood pressure. Try relaxation and meditation techniques like deep breathing or taking a hot bubble bath.

Vitamin B Complex A Great Source for Energy

Vitamin D Everyone loves to enjoy the good summer weather. But those extended hours of daylight can often make it difficult to get through the day with enough energy. This leads many people to rely on sources like energy drinks and coffee to give them a jolt during the day. However, there is something that can be a more effective and long-lasting source of energy.

The Vitamin B Complex is composed of eight vitamins including thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12), pantothenic acid and biotin. B Vitamins are critical to an energetic long life. Vitamins B1 and Biotin help you to maintain a healthy metabolism while vitamins B2, B3, B5 and B12 are necessary for the bodys production of energy. A deficiency of these vitamins could lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, lower metabolism rates and more.

B Vitamins work to provide energy to the body by converting carbohydrates into glucose and glucose into energy. They are required to metabolize both fats and proteins. In addition, the Vitamin B Complex assists in maintaining a healthy nervous system and in proper digestion. It also helps to keep skin, hair and nails healthy. Because this group of vitamins works together, it is best if they are taken at the same time.

Don't let a Vitamin B deficiency keep you from fun summer activities. The Vitamin B Complex may be the answer to your lack of energy.

Hair Loss Prevention

As men age, they suffer from hair loss, even beginning at a young age. What they don't know is that they can prevent hair loss with home remedies and medications.

Hair loss is more common in North America than in Europe because of our diet. The average North American diet is much worse than the average European diet. North Americans eat much more fatty foods and animal proteins and not enough fruits and vegetables. Another reason contributing to hair loss is hair dye. Yes, dye does cause significant hair loss, not right away, but later in life. For women, birth control pills contribute to hair loss. This is only temporary and you should not worry.


Home remedies you can use to prevent hair loss are easy to find, and cheap, but less efficient than medication.

Aloe Vera You can use Aloe Vera gel to stimulate hair growth. After you shampoo apply Aloe Vera and massage your scalp, then rinse.
