Wednesday’s Ask Dr. Walt — Supplements for High Blood Pressure

Dear Dr. Walt,

Do you recommend any supplements for hypertension?

—High Pressure in Mississippi

Dear Cardiovascular,

Nope.

Absolutely not!

First of all, if you have hypertension, you are living with a potential killer. You want a treatment that has been proven to be safe and effective.

And, there are no herbs, vitamins, or supplements that fit this category.

Secondly, even if there were, in our country these substances are not regulated, making it difficult to find safe and effective product (although independent testing labs such as USP or ConsumerLab.com can be very helpful).

Third, and most importantly, proven and safe pharmaceutical drugs can be very, very inexpensive (i.e. $4 per month or $10 per three months) and very few natural medicines approach that degree of affordability.
