...blood pressure and cholesterol levels is influenced by taking of garlic capsules. This is crucial given that the capsules contain the allicin substance which is responsible for the reduction of blood pressure and serum. Garlic can contribute immensely to the overall health of a person. However, in many countries use of garlic has been low due to poor policy framework set by health authorities. Garlic is effective in the reduction of cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.

How do the nervous system and local controls work together to regulate blood pressure and blood flow in different tissues

...Blood Pressure and Blood Flow by Nervous System and Local Controls The regulation of oxygen supply to tissues is largely dependent on the regulation of blood flow. Blood flow to the organs is maintained by the cardiovascular system by two main mechanisms: One, through the maintenance of input pressure to all organs within specific limits with the help of arterial pressure regulation, and second, through the adjustment of vascular resistance (R) to blood flow of each organ within a specific optimal value. These functions of the cardiovascular system are regulated by three main mechanisms, namely – local, neural and humoral (Pittman 2011). These three mechanisms, although independent... ?Regulation of...

...Hypertension Renovascular hypertension is defined as hypertension, an elevated blood pressure, caused by renal hypoperfusion. This usually is the result of blockage in the renal arteries that triggers and activates the renin-angiotensin system. As the blockage appears to the kidneys as low blood flow, the kidneys produce hormones that the body responds to by retaining salt and water. This salt and water retention in turn raise the body's blood pressure resulting in hypertension (diastolic pressure above 104) (Renovascular Hypertension 2006) Renovascular hypertension is termed secondary hypertension as it is caused by the activity in an isolated part of the body. Renovascular... ...

The Impact of Exercise, Jumping on Heart Rate and Blood Pressure

...blood pressure Introduction During strenuous activities like exercise, the muscle gets involved and that means expenditure of high quantities of oxygen. The amount of oxygen expenditure can be three times the quantity of oxygen used during rest. These requirements demand that the heart increases its capacity to supply the oxygen to the various muscles in the body (Raj et al., 2005; Watanabe, 2003). Therefore, the heart compensates by increasing its pumping force. As the pumping force increases, the pulse also responds quickly. These features also mean that the lung takes in a lot more oxygen in enhancing the breathing process. During exercising...  The impact of exercise, jumping on heart rate and bloo...

The pathophysiology of hypertension is quite complex and myriads of theories have been proposed explaining it. As such, hypertension is of two kinds: Essential Hypertension and Secondary Hypertension. Most cases of hypertension fall in the category of essential hypertension because no specific cause of patients condition of hypertension is found in this category.
