In brief: Hypertension prevent

Some of it can be prevented and some of it can't (ie, due to genetic factors).
Prevention aspects include keeping normal weight, regular aerobic exercise (3-4 days a week of walking, swimming, bike riding, aerobics, treadmill, etc), low salt diet in some populations, higher vegetable consumption.

Keep gut healthy and calm, use phytonutrients and monounsaturated fats.
Oxidative stress causing leaky vessel wall so detox frequently - for supplements use shittake or reishi mushroom and monounsaturated fats.
