How often do you check your body composition? Studies show that your body composition is directly related to your cardiovascular health. The higher the fat content in your body, the higher risk you have for developing high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Obesity is a known risk factor for hypertension, as well as other medical conditions. However, you can burn unnecessary fat (and reduce your risk of hypertension) with the right combination of physical activity and diet.
