Blood pressure, which I’ve detailed in-depth in the past, is a metric used to gauge the degree of force applied to arterial walls when the heart pumps blood. When the doctor cuffs your arm with a sphygmomanometer and takes your BP, it outputs a ratio that represents systolic over diastolic.

Systolic blood pressure is the maximum blood pressure, the high end of the range, whenever the heart beats.

Diastolic blood pressure is the minimum blood pressure, the low end of the range, whenever the heart is at rest.

That ratio — typically read around 120/80 mm Hg, which represents “normal” — is the determinant of hypertension (high blood pressure), hypotension (low blood pressure), and ultimately a person’s risk level for heart disease.

The Blood Pressure Chart serves as a phenomenal reference guide for all questions related to BP. What numbers are normal? What ratio is considered high blood pressure, and what ratio is borderline high blood pressure? What foods, tactics, and supplements help keep BP where it should be? These questions and more answered all-in-one below. lean it up, leanitup, lean, leanitup.com
