Romantic relationships help to control BP!

Being in a romantic relationship can help one keep blood pressure under control, say researchers of University of Arizona.

“This suggests that one way being in a romantic relationship might support people’s health is through allowing people to better cope with stress and lower levels of cardiovascular reactivity to stress across the day,” said researcher Kyle Bourassa.

“It appears that thinking of your partner as a source of support can be just as powerful as actually having them present,” Bourassa added.
