But a new study published in the journal Circulation reveals that fluctuating blood pressure is more dangerous than any other.
And it’s the one most people pay no attention to.
In fact, fluctuating blood pressure can raise your risk of dementia a scary 300%!
The good news is that you can reverse or stop fluctuating blood pressure —if you act quickly.
Japanese researchers recruited 1,674 participants, averaging 71 years old, to measure their blood pressure three times per day for 28 days.
They divided the participants into groups based on the amount their average blood pressure fluctuated throughout the day. Researchers then followed them for a period of five years to see which would develop dementia.
None of the participants suffered any form of dementia at the beginning of the study. But during this period, 194 developed dementia: 134 from Alzheimer’s disease, 47 from vascular dementia, and the rest from mixed types.
Compared to those with the lowest fluctuating blood pressure, those with the highest were more than twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and approximately three times more likely to show symptoms of vascular dementia.
This was true for fluctuations of both systolic and diastolic pressure.
Why does fluctuating blood pressure affect brain health so much?
You see, when your blood pressure is so uneven, oxygen delivery to the brain becomes uneven and parts of it starve for oxygen throughout the day.
Interestingly, our Brain Booster Exercises are specifically focused on this issue—to deliver enough oxygen to your brain. People, even those beginning to experience dementia, have reported amazing results from using these simple brain booster exercises.
