What is hypertension?

Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is a major risk factor for a heart attack or stroke. In fact, it is generally regarded as the most significant risk factor for a stroke.

High blood pressure is most often the result of factors that affect the degree of blood vessel constriction and fluid volume. Although genetic factors play a role, factors such as lifestyle, dietary habits and environment are the underlying causes in most cases of high BP. Dietary factors include excessive calorie consumption, high consumption of saturated fat and low consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, and a diet low in fibers, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C. Important lifestyle factors that may cause high blood pressure include stress, lack of exercise, and smoking.

Supplements for hypertension

Magnesium

Potassium interacts in many body systems with magnesium, and low potassium levels are often the result of low magnesium intake. It is therefore appropriate to take magnesium supplements to lower blood pressure.

Vitamin C

Taking vitamin C is more a way to prevent high blood pressure, or blood pressure rise, rather than really decreasing it. Studies indeed have shown that people with the higher intake of vitamin C have a lower the blood pressure than others. But, the results from studies show a modest effect of vitamin C to actually lower the pressure.

Omega 3

Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids can lower blood pressure. More than 60 studies have demonstrated that fish oil supplements are effective in lowering blood pressure.

Arginine

Arginine is important for the formation of nitric oxide, a compound that plays a central role in relaxing blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow, and decreasing blood pressure.
