    There are a number of contributing factors to high blood pressure, but the most important can be summarised in two: lack of exercise and obesity. Having a diet high in sodium (salt) is another factor that can increse your BP considerably.

    If you think you have high BP I suggest you consider the DASH diet (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension). It seems that this is the most effective diet to reduce BP considerably.

    Some other contributing factors to high BP are caffeine, lack of sleep, streess, alcohol and even excess of noise.
