Normal BP: For a healthy person, the recommended range is less than 120 over less than 80 (<120/<80). Blood pressure that is 120-139/80-89 is considered prehypertensive, and high blood pressure is considered 140/90 or more.

120/70-80: The average BP for 47 years old is 127/84.The "ideal" would be 120/70-80. Your blood pressure is perhaps the single most important number regarding longevity and health.

Irrelevant : Is your average BP less than 140/90 is the question. If not further evaluation with your physician is required.

You really want to know what is healthiest BP for age? Never confuse average with healthiy. How do we know what is healthiest? The Framingham study measured BP OVER 50 years in two generations. The highest got earlier CVD & lived shorter with greater % of yrs suffering from CVD before death. Since 1905 life insurance cost more above 90 diastolic. If &gt;140/90. If &gt; get it down, live long & prosper
