Exercising vigorously can lower blood pressure in teenagers, according to research.

While heart disease is often associated with older people, evidence suggests our teen years are a time when the signs of cardiovascular disease starts to appear, the authors of the findings—published in the journal Experimental Physiology—noted. 

Researchers at the Children’s Health and Exercise Research Centre at the University of Exeter in the U.K. enlisted 13 healthy teenage boys aged between 12 and 15 years old for their small study.

"O" Blood Type Linked to Death from Serious Injury

  Serious injury patients with this blood type died at nearly three times the rate of patients with others. Your blood type could have serious implications for your chance of surviving a serious injury. Researchers have linked blood type O to substantially higher rates of death from severe trauma in a study of 901 emergency patients.Serious injuries—those bad enough to kill or cause long-term disability—killed people with blood type O at nearly three times the rate of those with other blood types, researchers reported in Critical Care.

There are several ways you can lower blood pressure naturally. One way, believe it or not, is through breathing exercises . Clinical trials have shown that daily RESPeRATE use lowered blood pressure , sometimes as much as a blood pressure pill would have.

How Much Exercise To Lower Blood Pressure . Cross-training really counts. Cardiovascular exercise was the long-preferred modality for overall health and lowering blood pressure .

In what is believed to be the first to study to measure post-exercise hypotension—or the lowering of blood pressure after working out—in individuals of this age group, the boys completed four tests in a three-week period. In one, they completed vigorous and moderate exercise. High-intensity exercise was defined as eight bouts of one minute’s worth of vigorous running, while jogging for 10 to 12 one-minute bouts was classed as moderate intensity.

On the remaining days they were asked to complete vigorous, moderate or no exercise, respectively. Researchers documented their blood pressure every heartbeat before and up to one-hour after exercise. Ultrasound images were also used to investigate the stretch of the main blood vessels that supply the head and neck, called the carotid arteries.

Exercises to Lower Blood Pressure . Reviewed By Robert J. Bryg, MD on 7/27/2016. Keys to the treatment of high blood pressure are exercise , weight management, and a healthy diet. In fact, exercising makes blood pressure medications more effective.

Your blood pressure depends on how much blood your heart is pumping, and how much resistance there is to blood flow in your arteries. Here are 17 effective ways to lower your blood pressure levels: 1. Increase activity and exercise more .

This information was used to calculate how long the teenagers’ experienced post-exercise hypotension.

High-intensity exercise resulted in hypotension lasting up to one hour. But after moderate intensity exercise it only lasted 20 minutes.

The team believes the effect of intense exercise on blood pressure could have long-term health benefits and could be replicated in adults. But more research is needed to investigate and prove this. 

While the results were illuminating in terms of blood pressure after exercise, downfalls of the study included the fact it only included boys and the results were only measured one hour after exercising.

The study comes after the American Heart Association updated its blood pressure guidelines. The new criteria, which takes into account damage to the heart which starts at lower levels than previously thought, means many more Americans could be diagnosed with high blood pressure.

Nearly three-quarters of black adults are likely to develop high blood pressure by the time they turn 55, compared to only half of white adults from the same age range. The study titled "Cumulative Incidence of Hypertension by 55 Years of Age in Blacks and Whites: The CARDIA Study" was published in the Journal of the American Heart Association (AHA) on July 11.
