Vitamins??

Hi All,

Does anyone have any information on vitamins that lower blood pressure.

My blood pressure 3 weeks ago was around 149 over 90. I have since been on Wellman soluble vitamin tabs. I thought I'd try them to increase energy which they do work. I then checked my blood pressure today and it's 139 over 79 could this be the vitamins or something else?

Thanks for reading

Dean, I’ve never heard of any vitamin that is recommended to reduce high blood pressure. However, the herb, garlic, and the Omega 3 in oily fish can help. However, if your BP remains stable at 139:79, then keep taking the pills, as they say!

CoQ10, Omega 3s, garlic, magnesium and possibly green tea will all help. Your vitamins may contain the CoQ10, Omegas and magnesium which might all help. But as others have said, if it works, keep doing it! =)

Hi! Are you on bp medications? Or are you trying to do this naturally? I’m on Enalopril, yet my bp still seemed to be on the high side (130s - 150). I’ve tried all sorts of things to bring it down. The things I have found really worked was losing weight and exercising (117/70). Also being veggie definitely helps too. I was gobsmacked as to how low my bp went when I was running and keeping a healthy diet. I’m still on medication though, although I’m hoping I may come off it eventually. Nettle tea is great for PKD and is supposed to help with blood pressure (I buy dried nettle leaves and infuse in boiling water for a few hours - it doesn’t taste terrible, just ‘herby’). Cinnamon (Ceylon, buy on Amazon, don’t use Swartz!!), is a good stabilising spice (also great for PKD), I add it into cereals or popcorn, or whatever. Don’t take my word for it though, check it out first. But, there’s no point in taking these if the rest of your lifestyle isn’t great. Definitely cardio exercise and healthy weight and diet is essential for healthy bp. Good luck and I’d love to hear how you get on! If you discover anything, then let me know!!

Hi Jdelve,

I feel the rest of my life is ok I'm a keen cyclist and cycle between 40 and 100 miles a week weather depending. I have a stress full job and try to keep a low salt diet. I eat more than my 5 day. I don't drink coffee or caffeine drinks.

Thanks
