There are a host of hypertension supplements available for you if you prefer a natural way of reducing blood pressure. Avoid taking chemicals and ACE inhibitors.
Rauwolfia Serpentina is unique because it has been given considerable research and study by medical experts and found to be very effective in treating high blood pressure.
Rauwolfia - ‘Indian Snakeroot’
It’s a bitter tasting herb and also known as ‘sarpagandha’ and has been used as a successful and natural herbal remedy and supplement for centuries.
Unlike other herbal remedies and supplements, rauwolfia affects the central nervous system rather than dilating blood vessels or trying to regulate circulation. Medical high blood pressure treatments tend to affect balance and coordination, but taken in the correct doses, patients taking rauwolfia do not have this problem because it only acts on the central nervous system.
The Department of Cardiology in India has performed extensive study of rauwolfia and found it to have positive effects on patients suffering from high blood pressure, with the proviso that it is only prescribed by a trained physician or herbalist. A Chinese doctor found that 200 patients with high blood pressure who were treated with rauwolfia had up to 40% reduction of blood pressure at the end of treatment.
These dramatically positive studies of the properties of rauwolfia are often overlooked when people consider herbal remedies to high blood pressure, but it is effective with a starting dosage of as little as 2-12 drops taken by the patient 3 times a day or as prescribed.
