How to Lower Your Blood Pressure

  • Lose weight. Excess weight increases the amount of work your heart has to do to pump blood throughout your body.
  • Watch your alcohol intake. Try to consume no more than two drinks a day.
  • Exercise. Both aerobic exercise and resistance training significantly lower blood pressure.
  • Moderate your salt and sugar intake. Keep your salt intake to no more than five grams per day. A high sugar intake is also linked to hypertension.
