Nutritional Supplements

Consult your physician for proper individualized selection of supplements that is right for you, as well as proper dosing. Potassium should not be taken with certain diuretics. Any nutrients which lower blood pressure will reduce your need for blood pressure medications. Anyone taking blood pressure medications should only undertake a supplement plan under the supervision of a nutritionally-oriented physician.

  • High potency multivitamin. This will be an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and microminerals which are essential for cardiovascular health, blood vessel integrity, blood sugar control, and more.
  • Coenzyme Q10 (CO-Q10). Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that plays a supportive role in cardiovascular health and has been shown to have a significant effect on blood pressure.
  • Minerals: Magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Increasing these minerals has been shown to be effective in the treatment of hypertension. Some of these minerals are depleted by blood-pressure reducing medications.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Shown to reduce blood pressure in people with mild hypertension.
  • Other nutrients such as vitamins C and E, and amino acids Taurine, Arginine, and L-Carnitine are also effective in the treatment of high blood pressure.


Botanical medicine

There are a variety of botanical medicines that are effective at lowering blood pressure. Consult your physician for assistance in selecting the most effective herbs for you. Some herbs are toxic in higher doses and must be dosed very carefully. Also, it's essential to make sure that herbal medicines are safe with any pharmaceutical drugs you may be taking.

Garlic is an extremely safe herb that lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, and lowers clotting. Consult a physician before taking garlic if you are on blood-thinning medications such as coumadin.



Homeopathic medicines are effective in the treatment of high blood pressure. Homeopathic medicine is highly individualized to a specific patient. Consult a physician with training in homeopathy for assistance in selecting the homeopathic remedy that is right for you.
