Several ways to cure hypertension are:

Caffeine raises the blood pressure on an ultimate leve. High blood pressure patients should have a strict stop on it. To see if caffeine raises your blood pressure, check your pressure within 30 minutes of drinking a caffeinated beverage.

Exercise plays an important role in reducing hypertension. Exercising 150 min a week can reduce blood pressure to 5-8 mm.
  • Reduce sodium in your diet :
Even a little reduction in the sodium in your diet can improve your heart health and reduce blood pressure by about 5 to 6 mm Hg if you have high blood pressure. Sodium is not good for high blood pressure patients.
  • Limit alcohol and quit smoking :
Drinking more than moderate amounts of alcohol in your diet can actually raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications.Quitting smoking can reduce your risk of heart disease and improve your overall health.
