This ONE Thing Can Drop Your Blood Pressure by 10%

That stress ball that sits on your desk and does nothing is about to get a regular workout.

You see, back in the 1970’s the United Sates Air Force was working on finding a way to keep their pilots from blacking out from high G-force exposure. They brought on cardiopulmonary physiologist Dr. Ron Wiley of the University of Miami, Ohio to help them find a solution, and the results were better than they had imagined.

Specifically, they wanted to keep their pilots from losing their vision or consciousness when traveling at such high speeds that they were experiencing gravity at several multiples of what the human body is used to. And Dr. Wiley found a solution.

In order to keep blood circulating and prevent blackout, Dr. Wiley had pilots perform an exercise with an isometric handgrip.

But there was a surprising secondary benefit — a drop in blood pressure.

And that was it. All it took was exercise with a handgrip to reduce the blood pressure of the pilots. After several weeks, their blood pressure was down 2-3%. With more regular effort, it’s possible to reduce blood pressure by up to 10%.

The exercise can be done with a handgrip or even a foam ball. Squeezing at regular intervals for 12 minutes a day for 5 days a week is all it takes.

So grab that stress ball and get to working at dropping your blood pressure.
