Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Blood pressure numbers aren't always as healthy in the elderly as they should be, simply because the heart sometimes does't work as well due the natural process of aging - the body is not as efficient.

Ideal blood pressure is about 120/80. A healthy, low-salt, low fat diet with limited alcohol can help in keeping blood pressure healthy. Exercise can also help - even a 20 min walk or some simple sit-down exercises at home.
