What is hypertension?

Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is a major risk factor for a heart attack or stroke. In fact, it is generally regarded as the most significant risk factor for a stroke.

High blood pressure is most often the result of factors that affect the degree of blood vessel constriction and fluid volume. Although genetic factors play a role, factors such as lifestyle, dietary habits and environment are the underlying causes in most cases of high BP. Dietary factors include excessive calorie consumption, high consumption of saturated fat and low consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, and a diet low in fibers, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. Important lifestyle factors that may cause high blood pressure include stress, lack of exercise, and smoking.
