According to new research from The Australian National University (ANU), it was found that optimal blood pressure helps our brains stay at least six months younger than our actual age. People with elevated blood pressure, but within the normal range, also had older-looking brains and were at risk of health problems. Normal blood pressure is defined by pressure below 120/80, whereas an optimal and healthier blood pressure is closer to 110/70. The brain scan and blood pressure data were used to determine a person’s brain age, which is a measure of brain health. It’s important to introduce lifestyle and diet changes early to prevent high blood pressure. Everyone particularly young people should check their blood pressure periodically.
