As we age, we tend to experience health issues that were not present during our younger years. High blood pressure is usually one of these health issues that becomes a health challenge and is an early indicator of cardiovascular disease which results in heart attack and strokes. So when you hit your 60s a good idea is to invest in a blood pressure cuff and take your blood pressure regularly.

If your blood pressure readings are over the recommended 120 over 80 starts taking steps to naturally keep your blood pressure in the safe range. Some are easy life style changes, DASH diet, exercise and drink plenty of black or green tea (flavonoid compounds in tea help relax the vessels and in so doing reduce blood pressure).
