  3. 3. Blood pressure is the amount of force on the walls of the arteries as the blood circulates around the body 5
  4. 4. 80
  5. 5. Artery The outermost layer is composed of connective tissue made up of collagen fibres.
  6. 6. Inside layer is made up of smooth muscle cells and elastic tissue Dilation of Artery
  7. 7. Circulation of Blood Containing Red Blood Cells & White Blood Cells
  8. 8. Accumulation of macrophage W.B.C. and promoted by LDL Cholesterol (yellow dots) under the base line of Intima.
  9. 9. The body's immune system responds to the damage to the artery wall caused by oxidized LDL by sending specialized white blood cells to absorb the oxidized-LDL forming specialized foam cells.
  10. 10. The cholesterol plaque causes the muscle cells to enlarge and form a hard cover over the affected area. This hard cover is what causes a narrowing of the artery, reduces the blood flow and increases blood pressure.
  11. 11. Arteriosclerosis
  12. 12. The white blood cells that move in to repair the damaged artery make the lining sticky, more fatty deposits adhere, and the plaque gets bigger.
  13. 13. Eventually chemical substances destroy the plaque
  14. 14. The plaques that have built up in the arteries break off and get clotted. This blood clot may block off the already narrow artery causing a Heart Attack.
  15. 15. When the normal regulatory mechanisms fail, hypertension develops. Hypertension is so dangerous because it gives off no warning signs or symptoms Over time, uncontrolled high blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
  16. 16. • 95% ‘not known’ • 5% underlying disease  Genetics 40%  Environment 55% (lifestyle)
  17. 17. Signs & Symptoms Primary Hypertension is called the “Silent killer”, because it is frequently asymptomatic- meaning “without symptoms”. But internally, it can quietly damage the heart, lungs, blood vessels, brain, and kidneys if left untreated. Severe Hypertension may have symptoms, such as: Chest pain, Difficulty breathing, Nervousness, Sweating, Difficulty sleeping.
  18. 18. Salt and Sodium Treatment of Hypertension
  19. 19. Factors Influencing The Development of Hypertension 1. Age : 2. Race : 3. Family History: 4. Excess Weight : 6. Sodium intake : > 25 BMI Less active individuals are 30-50% more likely to develop hypertension. 5. Inactivity : Blood pressure of certain population is affected by salt consumption You have a greater risk if a family member (Parents or Sibling) has high blood pressure Young adulthood & middle aged men (>40 yrs of age). For Women after the age of 50 yrs. In people who have a gene that makes them salt-sensitive, are likely to develop hypertension.
  20. 20. 7. Low Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium Intake Factors Influencing The Development of Hypertension 8. Tobacco Use 9. Alcohol Intake 10. Stress 11. Diabetes 12. Kidney Disease 13. High Cholesterol
  21. 21. Complications
  22. 22. Daily Sodium Intake 1 Tsp salt = 6 grams and contains about 2.4 g of Sodium (and 3.6 g of chloride). • Recommendation: Everyone reduce daily sodium intake to 2.4 g. • Those with high blood pressure get reduce Sodium to ≤ 1.5 g a day.
  23. 23. Some Foods with a lot of Sodium Potato chips, Salted crackers, Biscuits, Pancakes, Fast foods, Pastries and cakes, Pickles, Soy sauce, Cheeses, Commercially prepared soups, Frozen or canned peas, Sausages.
  24. 24. POTASSIUM INTAKE A good balance between Sodium & Potassium is 1:3 For 1.5 g Sodium you should aim for 4.5 g Potassium.
  25. 25. • Meat and Potatoes are Healthy --nothing beats a potato for potassium -- roast, bake, mash • Winter foods like sweet potatoes, • Roasted veggies • Soups with natural meat broth and veggies, tomatoes, • Fishes are rich in K+ • Fruits - berries, bananas, citrus, melons, grapes, raisins, apricots • Nuts - peanuts, almonds Some Foods with Potassium
  26. 26. Chocolate Possibly Effective for Hypertension ! Dark or Milk Chocolate 50-100 grams/day: - lowers diastolic by 2.8 mmHg in normal & hypertensive people. - modestly lowers systolic by 4.7 mmHg and - provides 213-500 mg of cocoa polyphenols,
  27. 27. Chocolate Myths • Chocolate is loaded with saturated fat and is bad for your cholesterol. Fact: Stearic acid, the main saturated fat found in milk chocolate is unique. It doesn’t raise cholesterol levels like other types of saturated fats. In fact, eating chocolate bar has been shown to increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels. • Chocolate lacks any nutritional value. Fact: Chocolate is a good source of magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. It also contains polyphenols (antioxidant) that have been associated with a decreased risk of coronary disease.
  28. 28. Effects of Aloe Vera on Hypertension • Aloe Vera juice dilates capillaries and enhances blood circulation. • Aloe Vera extract if injected into the blood, greatly multiplies the oxygen transportation • Aloe Vera has been shown to: 1. Decrease total cholesterol levels, triglyceride, phospholipid levels. 2. Increase HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) levels • If there is too much Bradykinin (a group of protein) in blood, it can weaken and damage blood vessels. Carboxypeptidase, an ingredient in aloe vera, can inactivate Bradykinin. • Homocysteine in blood can damage the lining of your arteries. It also increases the risk of a blood vessel blockage. Vitamin B12 in aloe vera helps break down homocysteine into harmless amino acid.
