Do Herbal Remedies Have Any Effect On Blood Pressure?

Question: Do herbal remedies have any effect on blood pressure?

Answer: We can't say that 5,000 years of Chinese history is wrong there are some herbs that have shown some vascular benefits and blood pressure reduction. However the problem is that herbal remedies are not standardized. The doses vary from preparation to preparation and some may be harmful. We do not recommend that patients rely on herbs or non-traditional medicines for blood pressure control.
