What’s Normal? Who’s At Risk for High Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure in the arteries exerted by the blood when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). It's measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). High blood pressure (or hypertension) and is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.
About 65 million American adults - nearly 1 in 3 - have high blood pressure
High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease which can lead to heart attack and stroke, especially when it's present with other risk factors. There are things you can do to help keep your blood pressure normal, such as eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, taking natural supplements and getting enough physical activity.

American Heart Association Chart of Recommended Blood Pressure Levels
A blood pressure reading below 120/80 mmHg is considered normal. A blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high. Both numbers are important. If one or both numbers are above normal readings, you have high blood pressure.
Blood Pressure Category Systolic (mm Hg)Diastolic (mm Hg)
Normalless than 120
andless than 80
Stage 2160 or higher
or100 or higher
There is an exception to the above definition of high blood pressure. A blood pressure of 130/80 mmHg or higher is considered high blood pressure in people with diabetes and chronic kidney disease.

High Blood Pressure? Avoid These 4 Dangerous Levels- Naturally!
- Borderline (120-160/90-94)
- Mild (140-160/95-104)
- Moderate 140-180/105-114)
- Severe (160+/115+)
Physicians are primarily concerned with diastolic pressure (the second number in the blood pressure reading), but systolic pressure is also important. Individuals with a normal diastolic pressure (under 82 mm Hg) but elevated systolic pressure (over 158 mm Hg) have double the risk of death due to heart attack or stroke compared to individuals with normal systolic pressures (under 130 mm Hg).
Blood pressure typically goes up as a result of stress or physical activity, but in a person with high blood pressure, is elevated even at rest. Over sixty million Americans have High Blood Pressure, including more than half of all Americans aged 65-74 years.
Most patients with high blood pressure are in the borderline-to-moderate range, a group in which almost all cases of high blood pressure can be brought under control through supplement support, diet and lifestyle. In addition, in some people, the drugs typically prescribed to lower blood pressure produce the very thing they are trying to prevent: a heart attack. People who take blood-pressure-lowering drugs (typically diuretics and/or beta-blockers) actually suffer from unnecessary side effects (e.g., fatigue, headaches, and impotence), including an increased risk of heart disease.
"Controlling high blood pressure and weight gain are crucial for health, and particularly for baby boomers as they grow older" said HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt. "It's time to act against both conditions so more Americans can live longer, healthier lives."
