Feb 28, 2017

When you think about blood pressure, you might blame your high sodium diet. Well, it's a lot more about mineral deficiencies than high sodium. Sodium will impact your already high blood pressure, but high sodium will not cause high blood pressure.

If you have high blood pressure, you have a 2.5 times greater risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke. Nearly 86 million, or 34 percent, of American adults have high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is known as the silent killer because most people do not suffer any symptoms. Well it's also the silent killer because it leads to a greater risk of heart attack or stroke.

Did you know that every 23 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes? Did you also know that 86 million are at risk for developing diabetes! YIKES!
