PostHeaderIcon Q&A: What are the most effective herbal remedies to lower hypertension?

Question by jeff h: What are the most effective herbal remedies to lower hypertension?
I am doing a comparative presentation in school and am particularly interested in native American and old southern cures, but will take any herb to research. I am comparing herbals vs. pharmaceuticals.

Best answer:

Answer by Rebecca
hi!
Garlic: Garlic has been touted as an herb with numerous health benefits, from treating the common cold to serving as an anti-cancer agent. Research has proven that garlic is beneficial for those with hypertension. By thinning the blood garlic can lower blood pressure by 5 to 10 percent. It can also lower cholesterol and discourage clot formation. Unfortunately, garlic has a reputation for being an “anti-social” food, but with all of the health benefits that garlic provides, bad breath should be the least of your worries.

Hawthorne: One of the safest herbal remedies on the market, Hawthorne berries are used to treat cardiovascular disease in many different cultures. In Europe, it is one of the most popular herbs used in alternative medicine today. Studies have shown that Hawthorne berries protect arterial walls, lower blood pressure by dilating blood vessels, and strengthen the heart’s pumping ability. The full effect usually takes several weeks to months to develop.

Rauwolfia serpentina: Otherwise known as Indian Snakeroot, this powerful herb can significantly lower blood pressure with only a small dose. The effects of the herb are usually not seen until a few days after the initial administration and have a cumulative effect. Rauwolfia does have side effects, the most common being nasal congestion. Less common side effects include dizziness, nausea, and dry mouth.
Supplement Your Diet:
You can also complement lifestyle changes with dietary supplements. Try supplements for at least a few months to gauge their effectiveness. The following is a list of commonly used supplements:
Calcium: A relationship exists between calcium and your blood pressure. Studies have shown that calcium reduces blood pressure levels. Calcium is important to the body because it plays a pivotal role in muscle contractions, including heart muscle contractions.

Magnesium: Magnesium is involved in over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium is required to assimilate calcium into the body and regulates the entrance and utilization of calcium in the cells.

Potassium: Studies indicate that potassium may reduce blood pressure.

Vitamin C: Vitamin C helps lower blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels.

Vitamin E: Vitamin E is an antioxidant believed to lower blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels. Vitamin E also protects blood vessels from damage.

Coenzyme Q10: Coenzyme Q10 is believed to help regulate blood pressure by improving the function of the blood vessel walls.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Recent studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids may significantly lower blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels.

Hopefully it’ll help, good luck!
