4 Blood Pressure Herbs
High blood pressure herbs are not recommended for someone who suffers from highly elevated blood pressure
levels. They can, however, help those who want to gain a little more control on slightly elevated blood pressure
readings. Always check with your health care professional first before starting an herb regimen since herbs can
interact with prescribed medications. In addition, when taken in high doses, herbs can be dangerous. So check with
your health food store for the proper dosage of any herbs you take.
Ginger - has been found to gradually help lower blood pressure. It's safe and effective, and if you take
the time to learn to integrate it into your diet as a substitute for the flavor of salt, you can benefit your blood
pressure on two fronts at the same time. Ginger adds a delicate spiciness to many foods including salad dressings
and pumpkin pies.
Gingerforce™ features the world's most potent full-spectrum organic ginger extract, at least
350 times the concentration of fresh ginger. This premier extract is Potency Assured™ to a minimum of 30%
pungent compounds, and also contains at least 8% zingiberene, an important and active component of the essential
oil of ginger. Because this is a full-spectrum extract, it contains hundreds of naturally occurring beneficial
ingredients not similarly present in other extracts.
Rauwolfia - is a powerful hypotensive botanical that helps to control hypertension. Because it's so
powerful, only a small dose will achieve results. There are side effects, such as nasal congestion, if the dose is
Mistletoe - is hypotensive, meaning it helps to lower high blood pressure, without being as potentially
overwhelming as some of the other choices. It's prepared as a cold infusion, because the poison doesn't dissolve in
cold water. If preparing as a tea, use a table spoon of mistletow in a cup of cold water. Cover and let it sit for
8-12 hours. Run the infusion through a sieve and heat to drinking temperature.
Hawthorne - causes vasodilation, which is the dilation of the coronary blood vessels. This helps increase
the heart's output and the flow of blood throughout the body. Which, in turn, helps to lower blood pressure.
Generally, a two-month regimen is necessary before you'll see results. Hawthorn Extract provides powerful
antioxidant flavonoids, including standardized Vitexin that, along with other components in Hawthorn, have also
been found to support healthy range blood flow and healthy range blood pressure.
Again, before adding herbs into your diet, check with your physician.
