Spouses and other partners lower blood pressure says new research

The May issue of Psychosomatic medicine reports that spending a little quality time with one's spouse and other partners seems to have a calming influence on a person's blood pressure. In a study that used portable monitors to track people's blood pressure, it turned out that the participants' pressure was lowest when they were with their partners, regardless of what they were doing.

Dr. Brooks B. Gump of the State University of New York, the lead study author said that this does not mean single people are doomed to high blood pressure. Rather he said the findings simply suggest that comfortable relationships, close friends included, have a soothing effect on blood pressure.

Effects of short-term changes in blood pressure of a person are still unclear but Dr. Gump said that it is possible that over time, temporary flare-ups in blood pressure may take a toll on cardiovascular health. So the calming influence of a partner may counterbalance this and eventually benefit the heart.

Gump and his colleagues monitored the blood pressure of 120 healthy adults over 6 days and found that the participants' blood pressure was consistently lower when they were with their partners than when they were with another person or by themselves. And it did not matter where they were or what they were doing. The mere presence of the significant other calmed blood pressure.

Surprisingly, Dr. Gump said, the quality of the intimate relationship did not matter in this study. People who were dissatisfied with their partners also experienced blood pressure dips in their presence.

So in future, if you want to control your blood pressure have your spouse around !!!!!
