This book is for the 100 million people in the U.S. who have high blood pressure. It takes the things you need to know and collects them in one place.

In just 16 pages, you’ll learn what high BP is, what causes it and what you can do about it. You’ll learn about the different kinds of medicines and how they work. About which foods to eat and which ones to go easy on. Lifestyle changes that can bring blood pressure down all by themselves. (Just reducing salt in your diet might do the trick.) It will make talking with your doctor and pharmacist easier. You’ll understand what the nurse means when she says, “132 over 80.” Ever wonder what a beta-blocker is? We explain it on page six. Ever wonder what it means for you if both your parents had high blood pressure? You’ll find out.

This guide involved months of research and condenses decades of medical knowledge. It took a lot of work by a lot of people. But we’re making it available for free. Sounds crazy, but at 120/Life, we’re determined to take the mystery out of high blood pressure. High blood pressure isn’t complicated. Doesn’t have to be scary. It’s something you can do all kinds of things about, you just need to know what they are. That’s why we wrote this book and made it free. So that more people can. Starting now.
