I am a 40 year old female and have have some mildly high blood pressure readings over the past couple years. I am not over weight and fairly physically active. My reading can vary quite a bit but my systolic is usually 120-135, my diastolic can be around 84 up to 95 at times. I read and have gotten some conflicting recommendations if I need BP meds, it seems that systolic is the number of more concern, is this correct or is that just for older adults? Since I am young I would rather not be on BP meds if I do not have to. Are any supplements recommended besides reducing salt, diet , exercise, all these things I have already done. Thank you for your answer!
