My girlfriend has low blood pressure. She has been like that most of her life.
Is there anything that could help her to make her blood pressure increase. What kind of foods should she be eating and not eating. What kind of training should she be doing ?

I know there is tons of articles about high blood pressure but not too much information on low blood pressure and how to change it.

Hi Woodson-I have low bp as well. You can be on meds for it but I am not. I actually keep my salt intake fairly high and keep hydrated as much as possible. Eating 6 balanced meals a day has REALLY helped as far as the fainting goes.

She can do any tpye of training she wishes, from lifting to running. She really just needs to make sure she is fueled properly for those activities and I wouldn't recommend cardio on an empty stomach.

Also, if she is taking any supps she should be careful...things like sesamin have been shown to lower bp further in some people.
