High blood pressure (hypertension) is often a symptom of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and is linked to stroke, heart failure and kidney disfunction
Your Mom was right: eat your spinach. Folate-rich foods, such as spinach and asparagus, are associated with a lower risk of high blood pressure. A 2005 study found women who consumed at least 1,000 micrograms (mcg) of folate a day through either diet or supplements had up to a 15% decreased risk of hypertension compared with those who consumed just 200 mcg a day. Other good sources of folate include any dark green leafy vegetables and legumes. Check with your doctor about the best way for you, personally, to increase folate intake.
Be social. Researchers at the University of Chicago found that people with fewer social connections were more likely to have high blood pressure. In fact, blood pressure readings of people who said they were lonely were 30 points higher on average than non-lonely ones.
Make time for tea. Drinking as little as a half-cup of antioxidant-rich green or oolong tea per day may lower the risk of high blood pressure by nearly 50%, according to a new study of Chinese tea drinkers. Researchers found that the more tea men and women drank on a daily basis, the bigger the benefits.
