Hi “HEART” readers! This particular herb is particularly indicated for those with hypertension. Now, lets remember that 1. we should find healthy ways to reduce stress, 2. regulate our sleep and 3. have a clean diet that is free of inflammatory foods, higher in vegetables and lower in grains, free of antibiotic/hormone and pesticide ridden foods, low in caffeine and full of fiber and nutrients… then you have a better chance of decreasing your hypertension.
For those who are not depressed, have Parkinson’s, active ulcers (whether peptic or colitis) or pregnant, then this herb can be a great way to additionally lower your hypertension.
The constituent that helps with systemic (all over) vasodiolation (vessels getting bigger = reducing pressure) is called reserpine. But use with caution because high doses are toxic!
Ok happy and healthy HEART readers! Visit your ND to really get to the root of your hypertension, but remember Rauvolfia could be a good match. Come and find out!
