What Is High Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is the force in the arteries when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and when the heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). It's measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). High blood pressure (or hypertension) is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.

High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease (which leads to heart attack) and stroke, especially along with other risk factors.

High blood pressure can occur in children or adults, but it's more common among people over age 35. It's particularly prevalent in African Americans, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people, heavy drinkers and women who are taking birth control pills. It may run in families, but many people with a strong family history of high blood pressure never have it. People with diabetes mellitus, gout or kidney disease are more likely to have high blood pressure, too.

Detection of High Blood Pressure Symptoms

There no outwardly obvious symptoms of high blood pressure, this is why it is imperitive to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis. You can find out if you have high blood pressure by having your blood pressure checked regularly. Most doctors will diagnose a person with high blood pressure on the basis of two or more readings, taken on several occasions. A consistent blood pressure reading of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high blood pressure, another term for hypertension.


It is my greatest desire to share with others in need who may have similar or different problems as mine, primarily high blood pressure and my heart condition. A natural alternative supplement called Vitacel 7 was introduced to me by a co-worker. Not having any health problems himself, but knowing the value of being a step ahead of disease, he shared the message of this grand supplement with me. I was a prime candidate for a stroke or a heart attack. My high blood pressure was not normal at 165 over 105. I felt like a walking stick of dynamite. I was desperate and hearing the excellent beeter health track record of this vitacel product, decided to give it a fair try to see if it would lower my high blood pressure. I was pleasantly surprised and astounded with the normal blood pressure results. In just 3 weeks, my high blood pressure lowered to 125 over 80!!! Pleasant side effects became apparent. My age spots were fading. Hair has grown back in the crown of my head and also in the receding hairline. No need to tell you that I am pleased. All for very affordable pennies per day!

I am 58 years old and will continue to use this amazing vitamin supplement daily. I will also tell everyone about Vitacel GH-7 and encourage them to use it also for better health.

September 8, 1983

I’ve been taking a natural alternative medicine called Vitacel GH7 since April 2, 1983, and feel I’m over-due in sharing my story. I was introduced to GH7 by my brother-in-law, Mr. Sam Jenkins. At first, I was the typical doubting “Tom.” However, my health had gotten to the point I was willing to try anything I felt could truly be of help or relief As a result, I tried GH3, following is my story:

During September, 1976, I had experienced either a severe nervous breakdown or a mild stroke. I was 37 hears of age at that time. From then until 1983, I have been on medication to lower my high blood pressure and to treat my asthma, and allergies; and I have taken five drugs to control these blood disorder symptoms. It seems as my doctor had stated all drug medications may treat the immediate problem. However, each medication may have an adverse side effect. Permit me to address each of the above problems individually.

HYPERTENSION Treatment for this problem has been to take Oretic or Hydrochlorothiaz medication, once daily. After a time, it was discovered potassium was leaving my system too fast. So I began taking Kloivess “liquid potassium one tablet daily” Follow-up visits to the doctor revealed my blood pressure remained up and down, ranging from a high blood pressure of 160/102 to a low of 130/88. Both the Oretic and Hydrochlorothiaz medications were increased to twice daily, still the high blood pressure was not lower or normal. Catapres, a heart medicine, was added to slow the heart. This seemed to help for a time. However, the high and low blood pressure problem reoccurred. After 5 days of taking Vitacel GH3 I quit taking the heart pill but continued with the medication, potassium, and Vitacel GH3. My next visit to the doctor revealed my blood pressure had lowered to 130/88, then 120/70, 130/82, never above an acceptable level for my age group. Since using Vitacel GH3, my high blood pressure is now lower and normal. I’m convinced that in time I will be able to discontinue the prescription medication and the liquid potassium having replaced them with this remarkable natural alternative medicine Vitacel GH3, wich is not a drug and has no adverse side effects.

In summary, thanks to GH7, I feel like a new me, it has been the natural cure for me. I now am ridding myself of drugs, stress, allergies and I have my sinus problems under control all for the low cost of vitamins. I enjoy the benefit of restful, effective sleep. THANK GOD for Dr. Ana Asian and her discovery GH-3.

A very exciting thing has happened to me, and l am so pleased that I want to share it with others ... hence this letter.

Like everyone else that is “getting older,” I (at age 63) had begun to experience those signs and symptoms of aging . . . . mostly little things. But during the past year, my high blood pressure had shot up and for a number of months, my arms felt like they were weighted down with lead and I was extremely tired by late afternoon. I started having headaches daily and my head seemed to be “under pressure.” I guess this was related to the high blood pressure symptoms. I saw my doctor and he started me on high blood pressure medication to lower my blood pressure.

A few weeks later, while I was still having all these symptoms, a friend told me about Vitacel GH3 (originaly discovered by a doctor Aslan in Romania 40 years ago, well-researched, tested, and harmless to the body) that brought about a rejuvenation at cellular level. And because of that benefit, many people experienced unexpected lowering of High Blood Pressure and other ailments. I care about the quality of my health, Vitacel supplements are well priced, so I decided to try it.

WOW!! In the first 24 hours, I noticed a marked decrease in my “tired feeling.” In a few days, it had disappeared completely. My headaches immediately ceased, and in about two weeks, the “leaden feeling” in my arms was gone. In the following weeks, I noticed other improvements, too. My finger­nails, which had been brittle and split easily, were smooth, flexible and strong. The cuticles, too, had improved. My skin was smoother When I now try the “5 second pinch test” on the back of my hand, the resulting ridge is gone in about 3 seconds! I no longer have occasional mouth ulcers and I sleep soundly. My blood pressure is almost hack to normal and I have not been on the prescriptin medication for the past four weeks. Even though I have been taking Vitacel for less than 3 months, overall feeling and outlook is remarkable. I have written down every single “irregularity” that I have (from age spots to athletes foot) to see if they disappear over months to come.

Recently, I had read a best seller “Life Extension” (Warner Books) that makes mention of Gerovitl H3 also known as GH3, and states that aside from accidents, there is no reason why we should not live at least 120 years in good health. Our bodies are made to do that. But due to our eating habits, toxins, air and water contaminants, our body cells suffer from a slow poisoning that leads to cell deterioration and early “old age. This invites a host of serious aliment, cancer, stroke, diabetes, head attacks, arthritis, etc. be­cause our cells and immune systems are “too sick” to fight off invaders. This surely “fits” with what I have learned about Vitacel supplements. All of my parents and aunts, uncles and grandparents died of cancer (my mother at age 49). That leaves a gloom on my own future, but now after taking GH3 and living sensibly, I have no worries about it.

Some time ago, my friend from work got me to try Vitacel 7 to help with my high blood pressure condition and symptoms. I was also taking Hydrochlorothiaz medication. My blood pressure went down, but I gave credit to my medications, increased exercise by walking, diet change, etc., and I stopped taking GH7.

My blood pressure was high (I was still taking my Hydrochlorothiaz medication) so I took Vitacel 7 and noticed a lower blood pressure reading difference right away (2 tablets a.m. before I went to bed as I came off the night shift). In 3 days, I had no symptoms at all and people said I “looked alive.” At my doctor’s appointment, my blood pressure was lower and back to a normal range of 142/80 from 160/100 the previous week! Then for 2 days, I did not take Vitacel and was dizzy again!

This morning I’m taking them again. I know’ the Labyrinthitis is still waiting to take over, and Vitacel 7 has made it possible for me to live a normal life and work. The doctors here and in Edmonton told me, “It’s just something you have to live with and it will probably recur off and on the rest of your life.” But now I know I can do something about it with Vitacel GH7 natural medication. The drug, Antivert that they prescribe for this is to control the nausea and dizziness, but I still feel very sick and have very bad spells and side effects even with Antivert.

However, with Vitacel 7, I noticed 4 hours after my first 2 pills it was gone for all intents and purposes and I can function normally.

One month’s supply of Vitacel 7 cost very little, about the same as 30 Bonamine 25 mg. tablets (similar to Antivert, but not as many medications), and the instructions are, “Take 1 tablet 4 times daily as needed.” One bottle doesn’t go far and my doctor said when I needed more, just let him know. After 3 weeks, I still have Bonamine left! With Vitacel 7, I don’t need them at all!

Thanks for the help.

I feel I had a pretty good vitamin program worked out for myself, but now with Vitacel 7 added in, I do feel much better I had some arthritis starting to come into a finger in my left hand, even though I was taking fish oil. After only two and one half weeks, the arthritis was gone. My high blood pressure has been lowered from 136 over 86 to a normal reading of 127 over 76. A pain in my right shoulder has lessened quite a bit. I get up early each morning and feel more refreshed. I have more energy all day long and I don’t get hungry as often as I used to. Because of not getting hungry as much, I’m losing weight without really trying.

NUMBNESS ON TOTAL RIGHT SIDE - I awoke one morning with numbness in my right hand. After shaking it, my hand returned to normal, but with each morning, it took longer to get any feeling back. In time, this numbness moved up my arm, neck, half of my face and the top half of my skull. Within a short time, it moved to the lower right side also. I could walk and lift my right leg, but not my arm. If I wanted to move my arm or place it, I had to lift it with my left hand. If I raised my right hand, with my left arm, to the right side of my face I couldn’t feel my face or my hand.

Many doctors were consulted and tests were run, but they didn’t prove anything specific. They all took stabs at their own diagnosis regarding this disease or that disease. By now, I was experiencing fear coupled with anxiety The straw that broke the camel’s back was the M.D. that hold my husband to send me away on a long vacation alone, implying that it was psychosomatic. That was it! No more doctors for me. I had to try another route, but what?

Even with my physical problems, there wasn’t anything wrong with my memory recall. I remembered seeing the award-winning TV program, “60 Minutes,” when Mike Wallace did an excellent documentary on a product called Gerovital GH-3. I heard and saw foreign and American doctors tell of this amazing health product. It had no side effects and seemed to be efficacious for numerous diseases. I couldn’t understand how one product could do so much, but that wasn’t important. I needed help and felt this might he the answer. How right my hunches were. I managed to obtain some GH3.

In my wildest imagination I never expected such fast relief One day after taking GH3, my major complaint was gone. Yes, I had complete recovery on my right side. Too good to be true. I feared it would return and almost expected it each morning on arising. I soon stopped expecting it. It never came back.

LOW BLOOD PRESSURE TO NORMAL - I felt tired and had very little energy Naps were frequent and I retired early Doctors telling me, “better low than high,” was of no comfort. Donating blood was out of the question. If they took a pint, I was told that they would have to replace it with two pints. Today my LOW blood pressure is normal!

LIVER SPOTS - I had many of them in just the clavicle area. The doctor said there was nothing that could be done about them. I have one left!

SCAR - As a youngster, I cut my thigh on a piece of glass. The cut was deep, requiring stitches, which was financially impossible. As a result, I had a large scar which was thick, shiny and white. It is gone!

VARICOSE VEINS - They hung like ropes on my legs. I was advised to wear surgical hose, which I did for a few days and took them off as they were tight, ugly and hot. Instead, I sat with my legs propped up every chance I had. After taking GH3, relief came quickly A year later; it was brought to my attention that they were gone. I hadn’t noticed.

FOOT CRAMPS - I remember coming home from first grade with pain in my feet. After removing my shoes, I noticed that my toes were twisted on top of each other. Soaking my feet in hot water brought relief quickly Little did I realize this foot problem would follow me through life. As an adult, the cramping became my nightly visitor. Sleep was disturbed and foot soaks became routine. Morning stretches were out and cramping was in. With each pregnancy, the cramping got worse. I now couldn’t walk, but had to crawl to the bathtub. The cramping went clear up my legs. Foot cramps are now history!

RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME - Difficult to describe. Nerve-wracking, no pain, but a feeling of something crawling inside my bones. This would voluntarily cause me to move my legs from sides to side, trying to find relief Sitting would often bring it on. Many occasions would find me getting off the bus a mile or two before my stop as walking would bring some relief plus the passenger seated next to me would stare at the constant moving of my legs. The same occurred at movies, plays and concerts that I attended. I-low nice not to experience that any more.

I found excellent results with GH3, and for that I will always be grateful. However, since I started taking GH7 (which is an improvement and advanced formula of GH3) almost four years ago, I’m feeling and looking even better. I have finer skin tone, rapid hair growth that requires thinning twice a year, and a very positive outlook on life. Instead of being shy and introverted, I find I have become extroverted. I not only feel healthy and happy, but I’m thrilled to tell the Vitacel 7 story to those who will listen. I have been using these remarkable products, first the Vitacel GH3, and now the improved GH7, for over eight years.

Cardiovascular diseases and GH3 therapy

"...the large scale tests GH3 throughout Romania directed towards the possible effects of procaine to prevent aging and too fast a pulse are frequently normalized. Equally, long term treatments of cardiac patients (usually for eighteen months) will often yield satisfactory results. GH3 has a vasodilotory effect, causing blood vessels to dilate, thus lowering the blood pressure. Arterosclerotic conditions are improved, angina pectoris attacks diminish, heart thromboses show signs of faster healing..." H3 In The Battle Against Old Age - by Henry Marx

Documented GH3 Research Findings

....There were 15,000 people tested, ages 40 to 62. The experiment lasted two years before Dr. Aslan correlated the data and reported to the International Symposium of Gerontology (Bucharest, June 1972). The study is still continuing in many phases.

The main objective was to "prolong the active life period of workers, especially of those undergoing a temporary working incapacity, and to prevent the process of infirmity."

All these active, elderly working people received every health-saving aid known to medical science. In addition, 4121 received GH3, while 2905 did not, acting as a control group. To repeat, they all got the same medical treatment in every other respect; all underwent a battery of 11 objective physiological and biochemical tests. For the first time in medical history, a controlled study was being made on a mass scale, testing an antiaging substance GH3. Remember, these were healthy yet aging people, active at all types of work, under all conditions, indoors and out, country and city, being tested where they worked--—not in a hospital. In short, an excellent cross-section of average, so-called normal men and women.

The tests, made at regular intervals, included weight, pulse, blood pressure, breathing frequency, muscular strength, cardiovascular tests before, during, and after exercise, blood sedimentation rate, number of red and white blood cells, total lipidemia (amount of fats, such as cholesterol in the bloodstream), spirometry (measurement of air capacity of the lungs).

Some GH3 results follow.

1. Blood pressure: those treated with GH3 showed an improvement (normalization whether high or low) of 85% compared to only 61% in the group which received the same medical care but no GH3.

There were other therapeutic effects besides normalizing of blood pressure. For example, among the elderly workers, there were naturally some who had cardiovascular problems in addition to hypertension (in some cases, caused by hypertension). Since GH3 is a vasodilator (opening the arteries) in addition to exerting a beneficent effect on each cell, heart problems were improved by 83.2% in the GH3-treated patients vs. 63.8% of the controls.

Probably the most significant GH3 findings were the prophylactic results. Many subjects were normotensive: they had normal blood pressure, but should, according to previous reports, gradually change for the worse (either up or down) during the two-year study. Patients treated with GH3 maintained their normal blood pressure in 97.2% of the cases, while only 2.6% showed a decrease in arterial pressure; 96% of the controls maintained normal blood pressure. (Any departure from the norm is bad—contrary to popular concept, low blood pressure, frequently seen in aging persons, is just as deleterious as high blood pressure— also frequently seen.)

2. Pulse rate: in patients with tachycardia (high pulse rate over 90 beats per minute), the pulse was normalized in 93% who took GH3, while subjects with bradycardia (low pulse rate) were also normalized. Results in the control group were not as good. GH3 also intensified the action of specific medicines (such as digitalis and strophantin) in patients with cardiac insufficiency (where the heart does not operate efficiently). In fact, all heart and blood pressure medicines could be significantly reduced with GH3 therapy.

3. Cardiovascular GH3 effect: those showing a low score of heart effort at the initial examination were improved after six months, 48.4%; 12 months, 56.0%; 24 months, 60.0%. For those patients who had a good or fairly good cardiovascular effort score to begin with, GH3 maintained most of them at the same level for two years—when it might be expected they would slowly decline because of their age.

4. Muscular strength: in clinically healthy patients under GH3 therapy there was a gradual improvement; after two years about one-fourth, or 23.9%, showed improvement while only 3.5% declined—72% were unchanged. These are remarkable figures because a gradual decline in muscular power almost always occurs in people of that age bracket (40 to 62). The improvement occurred in twice as many of the GH3 -treated group as in the control group, which proves again GH3's dramatic role in preventing or reversing the age process in over 96% of the treated patients in this highly important test.

5. Respiratory capacity: after 24 months 96.1% of the GH3 -treated group were unchanged in lung capacity compared to 91.2% of the control group. This may not seem much, but lung capacity goes rather quickly in late middle age. At about 70 the average person has lost over 40% of the lung capacity he had at 25. This decrease is bound to affect all other systems of the body, heart, kidneys, liver, brain—in short, the whole body; since the oxygen so vital to every cell is drastically reduced, the other systems are naturally affected too. That is why oxygen-conserving substances such as GH3 and vitamin E are essential.....

High And Low Blood Pressure Bad for Brain Function

Reuters Health

Wednesday, March 9, 2005

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - New research indicates that high and abnormally low blood pressures can have a detrimental effect on one's thinking ability or cognitive function.

However, the association seems to be influenced by age, educational level, and use of blood pressure drugs.

The findings are based on a study of 847 subjects who completed tests of cognitive function up to seven times over 11 years, Dr. Shari R. Waldstein of the University of Maryland in Baltimore and colleagues report in the medical journal Hypertension.

High systolic blood pressures, the "upper" number on a standard reading, were linked to cognitive decline in older subjects.

By contrast, high or low diastolic pressures, the "lower" number on the reading, were tied to cognitive impairments in subjects who were older, less educated, or not taking blood pressure drugs.

Monitoring and treating high or excessively low blood pressures, "may be critical to the preservation of cognitive function," the researchers conclude.
