It’s Know Your Numbers Week 2021 which is why we’re talking all things blood pressure and why it’s always important to know your numbers.
What actually is blood pressure?
It can be quite confusing to understand what blood pressure really is. If you weren’t sure already, blood pressure is a measure of force that your heart uses to pump the blood around your body (1).
What is the difference between good and bad blood pressure?
An ideal blood pressure is anywhere between 90/60mmHg to 120/80mmHg, but factors like eating unhealthily, smoking, drinking and lack of exercise can lead to an increase in blood pressure (1). High blood pressure increases your risk of stroke, heart failure and kidney disease (1), but it can easily be managed.
Today, we’re speaking to some of the people who have been able to turn their lives around and lower their blood pressure since starting their exante journey.
Let’s hear Allison’s story
“Hi, my name is Allison, I’m 60 years old and was able to reduce my blood pressure on exante. Before I found exante, I weighed 18st,12oz and I was kept on medication to regulate my high blood pressure.
Throughout my life, I’ve tried lots of diets and nothing lasted, but when my son and my daughter in-law introduced me to exante, I was keen to try it out. I ordered my first two-week box to see how I’d get on and I totally loved it!
