"Managing Hypertension: Understanding Japanese Eating Habits and Medication Options"


A characteristic of Japanese eating habits is that they tend to eat meals with too much salt.
Perhaps because of this, it is true that many people have hypertension.

Hypertension is the most common lifestyle-related disease in modern Japan, and it is estimated that 43 million people are affected by it.
Hypertension often has no symptoms, but if left untreated, it can lead to serious illnesses such as stroke, heart disease, and kidney disease.

Starting in 2015, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has lowered the daily salt intake to less than 8.0g for men and 7.0g per day for women.
The idea is to prevent hypertension by reviewing your diet.
People who already have high blood pressure should not only eat a low-salt diet but also take medication.
There are various drugs available for treatment, including propranolol, which is used to treat hypertension and angina pectoris.
Propranolol has the ability to slow down the heart, and is said to be effective in treating angina and arrhythmia.

In addition to treating high blood pressure, propranolol may also be used to treat migraine headaches.
There are many high blood pressure medications, but Norvasc is the one most people take.
A major feature of Norvasc is that it takes effect relatively slowly .
In a sense, it is not suitable for cases where you want to lower blood pressure immediately.

However, since the effects are gentle, there is a great sense of security that there are very few side effects.

The blood concentration of Norvasc reaches its highest approximately 6 hours after taking it, and the half-life is approximately 35 hours.
In other words, it has the characteristics of being mildly effective and maintaining its efficacy for a long time.
Therefore, it is a drug that is easy to manage as it only needs to be taken once a day.
The mechanism by which Norvasc exerts its effects is due to the action of calcium channel blockers.
By suppressing the action of calcium, it functions to prevent blood vessels from constricting.
Calcium antagonists work by blocking calcium from entering cells, making it easier for blood vessels to dilate.
This allows blood to flow smoothly.

The major characteristics of Norvasc are that it has few side effects, is highly safe, and has a long duration of effect.
Norvasc, a drug for treating high blood pressure, can be obtained online without having to go to the hospital.
Many people may be reluctant to purchase therapeutic drugs online.
