High Blood Pressure affects more than one-in-four adults in England, around 12.5 million people in 2015, 31% among men and 26% among women, with little change over recent years. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) using two numbers generally written one above the other. Ideal adult blood pressure is widely considered to be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg, while high blood pressure (hypertension) is defined as 140/90 mmHg or above.

How does Policosanol work?
According to a new meta-analysis, Policosanol is believed to work by lowering the production of cholesterol in the liver and increasing the breakdown of "bad" (LDL) cholesterol.

It appears that this recent research offers a potential natural solution for the 1 in 4 adults currently diagnosed with hypertension (chronic high blood pressure).
