It’s common knowledge that working out helps manage and reduce high blood pressure levels. A new study conducted by scientists at North Carolina’s Appalachian State University found that early-morning exercise was most effective at dropping high blood pressure.
In the study a group of adults with hypertension were asked to exercise at three different times of the day: 7am, 1pm or 7pm. The researchers found that those that got their workout in in the morning dropped their blood pressure by 10 percent –an effect that remained throughout the entire day. The scientists added that adequate sleep is a must for the 7am workout sessions to be effective.
