Research has found that supplementing with taurine lowers blood pressure in people, possibly by reducing levels of the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline).
Research suggest that flavonoids from sea buckthorn may have blood pressure lowering effects.
One trial reported that reishi mushrooms significantly lowered blood pressure.
Onion may have a mild blood pressure-lowering effect, according to preliminary research.
European mistletoe has reduced headaches and dizziness associated with high blood pressure, according to preliminary research, and has a small blood pressure-lowering effect.
The brain chemical serotonin may affect blood pressure regulation, and animal research suggests its precursur L-tryptophan may help prevent and manage hypertension.
Hemp protein may contribute to the reduction and prevention of high blood pressure.
People with high blood pressure might be able to lower their blood pressure by using egg protein.
Forskolin, the active ingredient in Coleus forskohlii, has lowered blood pressure in a trial with people suffering from cardiomyopathy.
The amino acid arginine is needed by the body to make nitric oxide, a substance that allows blood vessels to dilate, thus reducing blood pressure. Arginine given orally and intravenously has been reported to help reduce blood pressure.
200 IU daily. In a study of people with high blood pressure, vitamin E was significantly more effective than placebo at reducing both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
800 to 2,000 IU daily. In one trial, women with low blood levels of vitamin D who were given calcium supplement plus vitamin D experienced significantly reduced systolic blood pressure.
Some doctors recommend that people with hypertension supplement with vitamin C, which has been found to have a blood pressure–lowering effect.
Pea protein may help reduce blood pressure.
Olive leaf has been used traditionally to treat people with hypertension. In animal studies a constituent of olive leaf has decreased blood pressure and dilated arteries surrounding the heart when given by injection.
Take under medical supervision: 2 mg daily of sustained-released supplment at night. For people with nighttime hypertension, supplementing with melatonin may reduce nighttime systolic blood pressure.
350 to 500 mg daily. Taking magnesium may lower blood pressure, especially in people who are taking potassium-depleting diuretics.
2 tsp (5 to 6 grams) dried flowers brewed as tea, taken two to three times per day. Two clinical trials have shown that hibiscus can lower blood pressure. The trials have suggested that Hibiscus sabdariffa tea may be as potent as some blood pressure medications.
1,200 mg per day of an herbal extract standardized to 2.2% flavonoids. Hawthorn leaf and flower extracts have been reported to have a mild blood pressure lowering effect.
300 mg per day. According to one study, grape seed extract may lower blood pressure in people with mildly elevated blood pressure.
600 to 900 mg of a daily herbal extract. Taking garlic may improve heart and blood vessel health and may help lower blood pressure.
300 mg per day of hesperidin, for 4 weeks. A study has found that hesperidin, a flavonoid found primarily in oranges and other citrus fruits, decreased diastolic blood pressure in healthy, overweight males.
800 to 1,500 mg daily. Calcium supplementation has been shown to lower blood pressure in people with hypertension.
10 grams soy protein or 16 ounces soy milk twice per day. Supplementing with soy protein may significantly lower blood pressure.
100 to 200 mg per day. Pycnogenol has been shown to reduce systolic blood pressure in people with mild hypertension.
Extracts providing at least 50 mg per day chlorogenic acids. Extracts of green, unroasted coffee that are high in chlorogenic acids might help lower blood pressure.
3 to 15 grams daily omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA, the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil, have been repeatedly shown to lower blood pressure.
100 mg twice per day. Taking coenzyme Q10 may have a significant impact on blood pressure.
