Which Plants Lower Blood Pressure


High blood pressure is a common enough problem these days. Perhaps this is why so much research on its cure and management is being done. Today, high blood pressure can be managed with different types of treatments. Some people prefer medicines while others try alternative methods like acupuncture and yoga. There are also people who try a more natural approach of treatment based on the use of plants and herbs.

Here are some plants that can lower blood pressure:

Garlic: Taking garlic in tincture form is a highly effective way of reducing blood pressure.

Oat Fibre: It prevents re-absorption of bile acids from the small intestine and lowers cholesterol.

Hawthorn: The berries and flowers of the hawthorn plant have the ability to help you in maintain your blood pressure. It is available both in tincture and tea form.

Wood Betony: When taken in tincture form, its flowers and leaves are most effective in lowering blood pressure.

Ginsengin: This root is native to the regions of eastern Asia and North America. It normalises high and low blood pressure by lowering blood sugar.

Fenugreek: This is found in southern Europe, the Mediterranean region and western Asia. It reduces blood sugar and can inhibit the intestinal absorption of cholesterol.

Besides these, there are also some plants that act as diuretics and help the body to remove excess fluids by increasing the volume of urine and decreasing the blood volume. This puts less stress on the heart, thus controlling the blood pressure. Some of these diuretic plants are:
Barley: Its seeds have an anti-inflammatory diuretic effect.

Germander: Acting as a stimulant and a diuretic, it can be used to treat heart failure due to excess fluid.

A word of caution- these plants should only be used after consulting with the doctor.
