There is also the way of the mushroom. Medicinal mushrooms. Chaga, to be precise. Good quality Chaga extracts contain betulinic acid, and this has the ability to break down cholesterol in the bloodstream very effectively.
So if your high blood pressure is the result of high cholesterol (and it often is) this is also an option to consider.
What are good extracts ? They should show the percentages of polysaccharides and betulinic acid on the label. if they can’t, avoid them. It’s just indigestible unextracted mushroom powder.
I personally recommend ORIVEDA extracts. 8 capsules a day for 10 days normalized my cholesterol perfectly, as my blood test proved!!!
Bob is correct. Chaga is one of the best ways to gain and maintain good health in general, and it does lower blood pressure and cholesterol and will normalize your immune function! Read about chaga in this excellent article: http://oriveda.wordpress.com/chaga-the-facts/
