Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels. Blood pressure varies depending on situation, activity, and disease states, and is regulated by the nervous and endocrine systems.

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. Our heart pumps blood into the blood vessels, which carry the blood throughout the body. High blood pressure, also called hypertension. Blood pressure is very dangerous because it makes the heart work harder to pump blood to the body and to the development of heart failure.

The pressure of the blood in the circulatory system,When your heart beats,it pumps blood round your body to give it the energy and oxygen it needs.The blood moves,it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels.The strength of this pushing is your blood pressure.

Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Each time the heart beats (about 60-70 times a minute at rest), it pumps out blood into the arteries.
Blood pressure changes during the day. It is lowest as you sleep and rises when you get up. It also can rise when you are excited, nervous, or active.

Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg). Blood pressure can be high, normal or low.

When a heart beats then it supply blood around the body. So the pressure gets generated on the walls of blood vessels which is known as blood pressure.
