While the damaging effects of high blood pressure on the brain are well established, recent evidence shows that even mild elevations in blood pressure damages the brain. 

Normal blood pressure is considered less than 120/80 while hypertension is defined as readings greater than 140/90. Mounting evidence shows that pre-hypertension with readings of 121-139 for the top number and 81-89 for the bottom number damages the structural integrity of white matter, causes shrinkage of grey matter and accelerates brain aging. 

Monitoring your blood pressure regularly and treating any elevations through diet, exercise and medications if needed will keep your brain healthy and vibrant.
