8 Powerful Yet Easy Asanas that Will Help Lower High Blood Pressure

A healthy artery is made up of semi-flexible tissues and muscle, and it stretches just like elastic when blood is pumped through it. The higher the force of the blood, the more the arteries stretch and allow blood flow. When the force of the blood flow is constantly high, the tissues that make the wall of the arteries stretch far beyond their healthy limit, and therefore, get damaged. 

This creates a whole lot of problems, such as an increased workload on the circulatory system, scarring of the vascular organs, weakness of the heart, an increased risk of blood clots, plaque build-up, and blocked arteries. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is by getting it tested.
