What causes high blood pressure

It seems I couldn't retrieve specific clips from the Huberman Lab directly addressing the causes of high blood pressure. However, generally, Andrew Huberman has discussed some factors affecting cardiovascular health, which are often linked to hypertension:

  1. Genetics: Family history can play a significant role.
  2. Diet: High salt intake, low potassium, alcohol consumption, and unhealthy diets can impact blood pressure.
  3. Lifestyle: Lack of physical activity, excess weight, and stress management are crucial.
  4. Age: Risk increases as you age.
  5. Medical conditions: Conditions like sleep apnea, kidney disease, and diabetes are contributing factors.

For detailed guidance, browsing through specific episodes on cardiovascular health or consulting a healthcare professional would be beneficial.
