High blood pressure: Walking this many steps a day could lower your reading


The meta-analysis found that participants “showed significant net reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressure” up to “3.8mmHg”.

In addition, they looked at more recent findings from the ASUKI step study – a pedometer intervention.

The volunteers were tasked with walking 10,000 steps each day. Blood pressure reductions were in line with how many steps people had taken.

These findings were consistent among the entire sample (355 people), suggesting that “the goal of walking 10,000 steps daily could be effective in reducing blood pressure”.
