"Hypertension" or "High Blood Pressure", is a condition where systolic blood pressure is above 140 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure is above 90 mmHg [2]. In 2008, Globally it was estimated that 40% of adults of age 25 and above have high blood pressure [1]. It is also referred to as the "silent killer" because it usually has no symptoms and an individual can have it for years without knowing about it. However during this time, the high blood pressure can damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. Hypertension is a serious condition that can lead to coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure and other health problems [3].
