Did you know that making simple lifestyle changes, like eating less salt and increasing your intake of fruit and vegetables, can help to lower your blood pressure? #KnowYourNumbers @BloodPress_UK

Eating too much salt is the single biggest cause of high blood pressure. The more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure will be. Cutting down on salt is one of the simplest ways to lower your blood pressure, and will start to make a difference very quickly, even within weeks. #KnowYourNumbers @BloodPress_UK

Your exercise levels and weight have a real effect on your blood pressure too. Being more active and taking regular exercise lowers blood pressure by keeping your heart and arteries in good condition #KnowYourNumbers @BloodPress_UK

We can all take simple steps to lower or control our blood pressure. For example, less salt, more fruit and vegetables, and regular exercise like a 10-minute walk #KnowYourNumbers @BloodPress_UK
