: Are there any solutions other than medications - like aspirin, bananas, etc. that are really effective for borderline hypertension?
Exercise, cleared with your doctor, as well as a low salt diet can be effective in controlling borderline hypertension.
Depending on your age, blood pressure can increase slightly with age, your doctor may recommend exercise and a low salt diet before putting you on any medication.
