It’s perfectly normal to have increased rate of heartbeat during exercise. It can rise over the course of exercise. After exercise, it will decrease gradually until reach at its resting level.


But the increased rate of heart beats without reasonable reason doesn’t not only signal that your heart work harder than usual, but it also points to the condition that there will be more useless blood (increased volume of blood) pumped through your arteries.

Increased volume of blood through arteries at resting level can be one of factors that can increase the levels of systolic and diastolic pressure.

The issue about ‘calcium absorption and overactive thyroid’

According to an article published on the official site of Oregon State University, there are some scientific evidences that point the role of (Ca) calcium in helping to manage blood pressure.

Calcium may help decrease the pressure against the artery walls because it can act as a special agent in the relaxation and constriction of blood vessels.

You get your calcium for ingested food. Normally, both your thyroid and parathyroid glands work together in helping to manage the balance of calcium level in the blood.

When your body has too low calcium in the blood stream, parathyroid hormones will be released by parathyroid gland. This can trigger the body to take the stored calcium in the bones and release it into the blood stream. On the other hand, when there is too high calcium in the bloodstream, the thyroid will produce and release more calcitonin in order to reduce the amounts of calcium in the blood.

And in the case of overactive thyroid, there is chance for the balance control of calcium in the blood doesn’t work as well as it should.

As a result, the mechanism of the body in regulating the blood pressure may also be affected, particularly true if also followed with poor diet (such as high in salt and saturated fats) and bad lifestyle factors (such as stress, poor in physical activity (becoming a sedentary individual), and smoking).
