Supplements High Blood Pressure – Which Vitamins Can Help

Magnesium: It’s long been known that magnesium relaxes blood vessels and improves arterial blood flow. That makes sense, because it’s a natural calcium channel blocker—similar in action to a category of anti-hypertensive medication.

Arginine (also known as L-arginine):There is early evidence that taking L-arginine by mouth can reduce blood pressure in healthy people, people with high blood pressure, and people with slightly high blood pressure with or without diabetes.

Potassium: When it comes to blood pressure, it’s not about how much sodium you consume; rather it’s your sodium to potassium ratio.Most Americans get too much sodium from processed foods and not enough potassium from fresh fruits and vegetables. Potassium supplementation has been shown to significantly lower blood pressure, particularly in African Americans.

CoQ10: A must for high blood pressure; a recent meta-analysis concluded that “coenzyme Q10 has the potential in hypertensive patients to lower systolic blood pressure by up to 17 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by up to 10 mm Hg without significant side effects.

Vitamin D: Low D (and vitamin K) have been associated with hypertension but a recent study failed to show that supplemental vitamin D was effective at lowering blood pressure

Omega 3: Fish oil can modestly decrease blood pressure. Provision of greater than 2 grams per day of EPA/DHA was required to reduce diastolic blood pressure.

Garlic: Has been used as a diuretic and circulation treatment since the time of ancient Greece. Garlic may improve the way your body circulates blood through your system. So it makes sense that, when studied, garlic significantly lowered both diastolic and systolic blood pressure in randomized clinical trials.

What is high blood pressure?

Arteries are naturally flexible and smooth, which allows blood to easily move throughout the body. High blood pressure creates extra force against the artery walls, which damages the lining of the arteries. As they become narrower and harder, this restricts blood flow, and when blood flow is lowered, the heart has to work harder to pump it through the body, which only makes the problem worse.

Healthy blood pressure is any reading under 120/80 mm Hg, where the top number represents the blood pressure level when heart beats and the lower number represents the blood pressure level in between beats. Anything over 120/80 is considered high, and you are considered to be at a very high risk if your reading is over 140/90.

Why Is High Blood Pressure So Serious?

High blood pressure is often referred to as “the silent killer” because most of the time, its symptoms aren’t particularly noticeable, yet outcomes may be vast and very serious. In addition, the longer that you suffer from high blood pressure and don’t take steps to manage it, the more chance it will cause irreversible damage to your body.

Hypertension is a main cause of chronic and acute health problems like:

  • heart failure
  • heart attacks
  • strokes
  • aneurisms
  • kidney scarring and failure
  • angina
  • dementia
  • cognitive impairment
  • eye damage
  • nerve damage

Thus, it’s crucial that you take control of high blood pressure as soon as possible, keep track of your blood pressure by buying a home Blood Pressure Monitor and check it regularly.

What Cuases High Blood Pressure

It’s not clear exactly what causes high blood pressure, but there are a number of factors that can increase your risk, according to the NHS. These include:

  • Age – the risk of developing high blood pressure increases as you get older
  • A family history of high blood pressure
  • Being of African or Caribbean origin
  • A high amount of salt in your food
  • A lack of exercise
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Regularly drinking large amounts of alcohol
  • Smoking
  • Long-term sleep deprivation
  • Illness

Conclusion: Some blood pressure medications have also been shown to reduce heart attacks, strokes, and death related to heart disease. Although many supplements may help slightly lower blood pressure, they haven’t been proven to lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with high blood pressure. Be sure to talk to your doctor about the best treatment options for your specific needs.
