According to studies, 1 out of 3 American adults has high blood pressure. Approximately 75 million is an alarming figure because high blood pressure is considered a silent killer nowadays. An elevated BP level comes without persistent symptoms. However, it can cause dangerous complications that can affect other organs including the heart, brain and kidneys!

Many seniors who discover that they have high blood pressure need more assistance and care in dealing with their condition than younger people. Fortunately, there are many ways to control, manage, and even fight this condition.
