    Hypertension, also Blood Pressure Decreaser  referred to as high blood pressure, is one of the very few diseases that is not only life-threatening, but also does not give any symptoms in its early stages to the persons. It has been estimated that more than 60 million people in North America are affected by this disease.

    What is the difference between blood pressure and hypertension?

    Blood pressure rises when the smallest part of the body’s arteries, called as arterioles, become narrow or constrict themselves, causing the heart to exert more pressure to forcefully beat the heart in order to pump the blood through the narrow arterioles. If there is no specific identifiable cause for blood pressure to rise, then we can refer it to hypertension.
