What Is Normal Blood Pressure?

Blood Pressure measurement describes power at which blood pushes on arterial walls. When heart muscle contract and push blood, it makes pressure on blood vessel walls.

When We are born blood vessels are very flexible and easily expand, again shrinking, when blood pressure lowers.

Getting older sediment is formed, and flexible walls slowly begin to calcify. It means that they are no longer able to expand as they used to, to endure higher pressure. With time heart will need big enough power to pump in blood into calcified blood vessels, and it begins to swelter.

Blood pressure is expressed with two proportional numbers. 

  1. Systolic Pressure – it arises when the heart is beating. 

  2. Diastolic Pressure – when heart muscle is relaxed.

Heart Rate can be elevated by lot of factors:

  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Medications
  • Cold in some cases

Active adults have lower heart rate and blood pressure. Same goes for people who don’t smoke and are not overweight.
