How healthy blood pressure is good for your brain in the long term
Keeping a healthy blood pressure level is more important than ever before.
A new study has shown that blood pressure changes between the ages of 36-53 can lead to damage to the brain later in life. The study, which tracked blood pressure and brain health at different points among people from their mid-30s to their early 70s, shows that treating blood pressure intensively can help brain lesions, which are risk factors for dementia. The research builds on existing evidence that it’s important to monitor blood pressure throughout adulthood. According to the authors, immediate attention should be given to blood pressure control among those who are at high risk, especially around the age of 40.
