A blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high blood pressure. Both numbers are important. If one or both numbers are usually high, you have high blood pressure (hypertension). According to recent estimates, nearly one in three adults has high blood pressure, but because there are no symptoms, nearly one-third of these people don't know they have it. In fact, many people have high blood pressure for years without knowing it. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. This is why high blood pressure is often called the 'silent killer.' The only way to tell if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked. Hypertension is a disease of the modern age. The fast pace of life and the mental and physical pressures caused by the increasingly industrialised and metropolitan environments have a role to play in the rise in blood pressure. The first symptom of hypertension may appear as a pain at the back of the head and neck on waking in the morning, which soon disappears. Some of the other common symptoms are dizziness, palpitations, pain in the region of the heart, frequent urination, nervous tension, fatigue, and difficulty in breathing. The main causes of high blood pressure are stress and a faulty style of living. Smoking and an excessive intake of intoxicants, tea, coffee, and refined foods destroy the natural pace of life and prevent the expulsion of waste and poisonous matter from the body. Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), obesity, and diabetes also lead to hypertension. Other causes of high blood pressure are an excessive intake of common table salt, and eating a high fat and low fibre diet. B.P. Eaze treats hypertension by balancing and regulating blood pressure and it also addresses some of the contributory factors which may be causing it. While some of the ingredients in B.P. Eaze specifically target blood vessels which have become constricted, others improve the heart's ability to pump blood effectively, while also treating and preventing plaque build up in the arteries. B.P. Eaze also helps to reduce stress and boost the body's ability to fight illness.

Calcium becomes a potent assistant to decrease blood pressure due to diuretic properties that help the kidneys release sodium and water, causing some experts to suggest that some forms of high blood pressure may be due to calcium deficiency rather than surplus sodium.
