Circulation anomalies are common as people age, with high blood pressure most often the problem. There are many good ideas about improving and maintaining blood pressure naturally.

From the perspective of the natural health principles, it is better to make dietary and lifestyle adjustments to achieve balance naturally, avoiding the health worsening side effects of synthetic medicines if possible.

There are opportunities at fitness centers, clinics, pharmacies, and many public places to periodically test your blood pressure so you know if improvement is needed. It is suggested to take multiple readings each time for an average. Also realize that some machines may not be properly calibrated.

A search for natural blood pressure improvement methods results in quite a few suggestions at many websites. The most common include exercise, weight loss, minimal consumption of sodium, caffeine and alcohol, and no smoking.

Eating for health is a major key to a well circulatory system, including foods and supplements providing plenty of magnesium (greens), potassium (bananas), omega 3 fatty acids (flax seed, fish oils) and and antioxidants.

A valuable herbal nutritional supplement for good blood pressure contains olive leaf and grape seed extracts as well as l-arginine. Aged garlic is another of the herbs known to be helpful.
