Ways to control High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is also known as hypertension. Blood pressure is the amount of force exerted against the walls of the arteries as blood flows through them. The heart is a muscle that pumps blood around the body. Blood that has low oxygen levels is pumped towards the lungs, where oxygen supplies are replenished.
