Hypertension is one of the most common health problems in the country today. A 2019 study showed that while many suffered from it, only 45 per cent of people had it diagnosed.
“All of us living in big cities face stress all the day,” actor Bhagyashree said in a video she posted on Instagram recently. Suggesting tips to alleviate stress, she said one must try being amid nature: “That’s the no. 1 stress killer,” she added.
For those starting to show symptoms of hypertension, the 52-year-old actor also suggested a healthy home remedy to bring down the systolic pressure. Here’s what she suggested:
“Mix ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder with a ¼ teaspoon honey and have it in the morning. Don’t have anything for 30 mins post that.”

“Hypertension affects almost ⅛th of our population, making it the leading cause of premature death according to the National Health Family Survey. So it’s about time we check our BP parameters,” she added.
