             Blood pressure is something that is seen in almost everyone in society these  days. Regardless of age many people become addicted to BP drugs. What is BP? It is mainly the blood vessels  from our heart that carry blood to all parts of the body.

               BP is the pressure effected on the walls of the arteries as blood flows through them. When the heart is pumping blood  strongly, the BP in the arteries rises to 120 mm of Hg. When the heart expands, it decreases to 80 mm of Hg. As the blood flows through this pressure, the brain,  liver, muscles and cells in our body receives blood, nutrients and oxygen.
