Blood pressure should normally be 120/80 so 140/85 is a high blood pressure although it's not dangerously high yet.

140/85 blood pressure is in prehypertension and you need to get it lowered below that level otherwise you can damage blood vessels eventually and have heart problems as a result.

Once the blood pressure gets above 140/85 you need  to get medical attention because high blood pressure can cause a heart attack and kill you.

You can use Apple Cider Vinegar for lowering your blood pressure.

You can either take a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar like you would other medicine or you can mix the Apple Cider Vinegar in with water, lemon juice and Organic honey.

That Apple Cider Vinegar concoction has helped lower blood pressure naturally for years and it really works as I've tried it myself.

You can also take walks everyday to help lower your blood pressure and even drink water throughout the day.
