High blood pressure remedies

Most helpful High blood pressure remedies

•   Calcium deficiency is common in people with hypertension. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that calcium can lower blood pressure, especially among African Americans, people who are salt sensitive, pregnant women, and the elderly. Typical reductions in blood pressure reported in these groups are about 10 mm Hg (systolic) and 5 mm Hg (diastolic). Take 1,500 milligrams daily.

•   Coenzyme Q10 reduces blood pressure and improves heart function. Take 100 milligrams daily.

•   Garlic is a powerful blood-pressure-lowering agent; it has been shown to lower the systolic pressure by an impressive 20 to 30 mm Hg and the diastolic by 10 to 20 mm Hg. Consume three to ten cloves of fresh garlic daily, or use commercial garlic preparations, following package directions.

•   Carnitine helps prevent heart disease. Take 500 milligrams twice daily on an empty stomach.

•   Hawthorn, widely used in Europe, lowers blood pressure, improves coronary circulation, prevents cholesterol deposits from forming on artery walls, and helps strengthen the heart muscle. Use a commercial product; follow package directions.

•   Potassium deficiencies are possible in people taking diuretics for blood-pressure control. Low levels of potassium, especially when combined with high levels of sodium, increase fluid retention and inhibit the body's blood-pressure-regulating system. If you are taking diuretics or high-blood-pressure medication, eat a banana every other day or take 99 milligrams daily.

•   Vitamin C has been found to help lower blood pressure. One study found that taking as little as 250 milligrams of vitamin C daily slashed the risk of high blood pressure by almost half. Take 1,500 milligrams of vitamin C daily.
