1. Weight reduction: maintain healthy body wt, BMI below 25, reduces BP 5-20mmHg 2. A diet rich in fruits, veggies, low in fat milk products with reduced saturated fat intake, reduces BP 8-14mmHg 3. Sodium(salt) restriction: <2400mg/day, reduces BP 2-8mmHg 4. Exercise: 30min/day most days a week, reduces BP 4-9mmHg 5. Alcohol: 2 drinks/day for men, 1 drink/day for women, reduces BP 2-4mmHg **FYI, "mmHg" means millimeters of mercury, it's just how blood pressure is measured**
