Natural Blood Pressure Support

by Dr. Jason Barker January 19, 2022

Natural Blood Pressure Support


Note: Heart Tension Formula has been renamed to HTN Support - it's the exact same formula!


Blood pressure is the pressure inside of your arteries, the vessels that leave the heart to deliver oxygen and nutrients around your body.  An average blood pressure is considered to be 120/80, and with new guidelines released in 2017, anyone with blood pressure above 130/80 is considered to have hypertension; this means that nearly half the adult population in the U.S. has high blood pressure!

Many cases of high blood pressure are due to being overweight, obese and sedentary.  However, many people, despite staying fit and eating well still struggle with high blood pressure.  That being said, there are many causes for this condition that aren’t always easily fixed by diet and lifestyle.

Before you go on a prescription drug, consider using a natural medicine combination to help lower your blood pressure. HTN Support contains the herbs, minerals and vitamins that are known for lowering blood pressure.


Best Uses for HTN Support:

  • Mild to moderate hypertension (elevated blood pressure)

Here's How HTN Support Works: 

Botanical Medicines:

Hawthorn Berry is a botanical medicine that has several indications for heart health.  It helps lower blood pressure, decreases irregular rhythms and increases blood flow into the heart itself.

Rauwolfia is another botanical medicine with blood pressure-specific effects.  It primarily reduces blood pressure by slowing the nerve transmissions that direct how quickly the heart beats.

Coleus Forskohlii(95% Forskolin) lowers blood pressure by affecting the nerves in the heart; it causes stronger contractions and at the same time relaxes the blood vessels.

Garlic stimulates the release of a compound known as endothelium derived relaxation factor (EDRF, or nitric oxide) which is the body’s main method for dilating blood vessels.  It also has powerful effects on cholesterol! 

HTN Support natural blood pressure lowering

Grape Seed Extract (95% Proanthocyanidins) contains several nutrients that benefit heart health (flavonoids, oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes, linoleum acid, vitamin E) and can lower lower systolic pressure by 12 points and diastolic pressure by 8 points, on average. 

Gynostemma Pentaphyllum  (Jiaogulan) has 82 known compounds that improve how well the heart pumps blood without increasing the actual rate at which it contracts. It can also lower cholesterol and improve how oxygen is used in the body.

Minerals:

Magnesium is a mineral that is used heavily throughout the body. It works as a very gentle muscle relaxer and can lower blood pressure by relaxing the very tiny muscles that surround our arteries, thereby allowing them to relax and decrease the pressure within.

Potassium works in tandem with magnesium to lower blood pressure and when the body’s magnesium stores are low so are potassium stores.  It’s important to have adequate amounts of these minerals to keep blood pressure at healthy levels.

Vitamins:

Niacin and Inositol (from Inositol Hexanicotinate) is a non-flushing version of Niacin, a very powerful blood pressure-lowering vitamin.  Arranged in this way (six niacin molecules linked to one inositol) it’s released slowly over time and reduces flushing that occurs with regular niacin.  Inositol hexanicotinate is also great for lowering cholesterol.

Vitamin C is included in this formula because of research that shows a link between low bodily vitamin C levels and increased blood pressure (systolic and diastolic).  Vitamin C is also a key factor in keeping the linings of arteries healthy and flexible. (Part of why people get high blood pressure is due to stiffening of their arteries).

HTN Support contains the best-known natural medicines to help lower, and keep blood pressure in a healthy range. 

 

*Important:

Only use HTN Support with the guidance of your healthcare provider.  Be sure to understand the warnings with its use.

Always track your blood pressure to make sure whatever medicine you’re using is effective and safe and keeps your blood pressure at healthy levels (120/80, at the highest).

We recommend recording your blood pressure twice daily in the AM and PM right upon waking and at bedtime so you have a good understanding of your blood pressure and how your treatments are working.

by Dr. Jason Barker

NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) are a popular grouping of mostly over the counter pain relieving drugs. As you can tell from their name, they act as anti-inflammatory drugs. Athletes pop ibuprofen so often that it is jokingly referred to as 'Vitamin I'. Problem is, it just isn't that good for you and has some serious side effects for many of us.
