High blood pressure: The hot drink shown to slash risk of hypertension by 65 percent


    According to the health body, “to see if caffeine raises your blood pressure, check your pressure within 30 minutes of drinking a caffeinated beverage”.

    “If your blood pressure increases by 5 to 10 mm Hg, you may be sensitive to the blood pressure raising effects of caffeine.”

    Millimetres of mercury (mmHg) – what does this measurement mean?

    Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg).

    The measurement is used to record two numbers:

    • The systolic pressure (higher number) is the force at which your heart pumps blood around your body.
    • The diastolic pressure (lower number) is the resistance to the blood flow in the blood vessels.
