Here's The Natural Way to Reduce Hypertension

Jul 24, 2008
It's amazing how natural has created paths for us to heal ourselves. Many years ago, people were using natural remedies to handle their health problems. Years later, even with so much information readily available, many people do not really know about the benefits of these natural herbs. Fortunately for us, these natural remedies are readily available as herbal supplements. In fact, some of these have been traditionally used for lowering blood pressure and many other conditions.

There are some herbs that are beneficial for blood circulation support, reducing chest pains, and treating cardiovascular problems. So it's important to know about herbs that can help you when you decide to look for them. With that in mind, knowing the names of these herbs is just as important as knowing what they do.

Hawthorn Berries (Crataegus Oxycantha Monogyna)

Hawthorn has been traditionally used to naturally normalize blood pressure levels. This is done by dilating your coronary blood vessels. In order to see optimal results, consumption of up to four weeks may be needed.

Garlic

Garlic has been recognized as a blood pressure lowering herb. Studies have shown that systolic pressure has been reduced by 20-30 mmHg and diastolic pressure by 10-20 mmHg.

Forskolin (Coleus Forskohlii)

This has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine for a long time. Forskolin is known to show a hypotensive and antispasmodic effect. It helps relax your arterial vascular smooth muscle, which then regulates blood pressure levels.

European Mistletoe (Viscum album)

Mistletoe has hypotensive and anti-cancer properties. It is known to possess cardiotonic, hypotensive, antispasmodic, vasodilatory, thymus stimulating, and tumor-inhibiting activity. However, mistletoe's pharmacological effects have been successfully exposed in animal studies.

Olive Leaf (Olea Africana and Olea Europea)

As the name implies, the source of this extract is from an olive tree. The extract itself contains vasodilators which can help lower blood pressure levels. For over 2 decades, studies have been conducted to prove the effectiveness of this extract. It's been noted that blood pressure levels were reduced without any side effects.

Black Cumin Seeds (Nigella Sativa)

Cumin seeds have been used in folk medicine for ages. It has been used as a diuretic as well as a treatment for hypotension. Research has shown that the oil extracted from black cumin seeds can be useful in treating hypertension naturally.

Arjuna Bark (Terminalia Arjuna)

Arjuna is widely available in India. It's referred to as an Ayurvedic medicine. Those which have cardiovascular issues or related disease can benefit without any known side effects.
