    Blood pressure??


    Have slightly elevated BP never cycled AAS Ph. I have some Hawthorne berry and know guys preload with this and other things but is there a general health dose anyone can recommend or any other natural herbs/supps I can take to help? When my wife takes it at home it's normal or closer to normal but I just had my father in law take it at his doc office for my DOT exam and it was 150/88. I used to be fat and chewed cope all day and it wasn't really high now that I'm in shape it's usually fine 125-135/80-90 until this time. I just started AT2/erase after 8 weeks off. Could AT2 cause this elevation?

    When did you take the AT2 in relation to the two times that you had your BP measured? Also, just to be clear, you only had a high reading the one time? If so, I would follow up in a few days to see where it is. There are many reasons why it could have been high just that time.

    For me high doses of taurine got my BP down. Went from 148/100 to 101/76 last time I checked.

    broons - how high of a dose? im currently on about 4-4.5g per day and havent noticed a whole lot

    op - i liked hawthorn extract and ubiquinol (more 'pure' version of coq10, so to speak). i did 200mg per day ubiq for the first few weeks, then went down to 100mgxday (its kind of pricy). however, ive never tried just regular coq10, may be just as good, though.

    those that didnt work much for me - celery seed extract, olive leaf extract, taurine, acv
    those that MAY have helped - cayenne pepper, red beet power

    Helps. For further help in keeping cardiovascular health a Saturated Fat Rich diet, Hawthorn Berry and High EPA/DHA content Fish oils can help along with CoQ10.

    You would probably want to stray from a saturated-fat-rich diet in this case lol .

    Agreed with the supplement recommendations though. EPA/DHA, CoQ10, Niacin, and Agmatine.

    I was just gonna PM you actually...Niacin does help then? I was gonna write it but wasn't sure, and yes Agmatine works. Oh and I said Sat-Fat diet because of the Front Pages article lol

    I found taurine to be useful at around 8 to 10 grams a day. From what i recall, Generally it's considered safe at 10 grams a day. I split mine up evenly throughout the day. Also, the price of bulk taurine powder is very affordable.

    Second Taurine. 4-6g daily helped me out immensely. Taking a break from it right now. Ecklonia Cava is reputedly able to lower blood pressure along with other health benefits. A little pricey though.

    make sure you rest 15 minutes before you take it... literally sit or lie down for a 15 minutes then take it. Thats more accurate.

    I know 200mg ubiquinol with a nitrate source (used powershock and/or bulk creatine nitrate) worked quickly to lower my bp while i made diet adjustments to keep it down.

    This is exactly what I was saying. At least try it a second time before you buy a bunch of supps that you might not need.

    Thanks all I will have her take it again this week after chilling out for a bit. I'm under a lot of stress lately as well so I'm sure that isn't helping either. Thanks again I'll report back

    Stress does a number on bp, so I wouldn't be surprised if your numbers were skewed because of it.

    There is a very easy and effective way to lower your BP almost instantly. I've tried Celery Seed extract, Hawthorn Berry, CO Q10, Astaxanthin and all the other so called BP reducing products. Just get some UR spray. Use as direcrted and your BP will drop within an hour or so. I really don't know why it just works. It's also a great leaning agent with a lot of health benefits.

    Dr. Houser advocates the use of niacin. Also, he says it has an affect on GH.

    There is a book called the "8 Week Cholesterol Cure", that discusses Niacin supplementation at length. The book claims (and I believe) Niacin does everything a statin does, but w/ very few sides. Big pharma push statins (IMO) because they can't patent Niacin; therefore they can't make money off of it.

    At doses high enough to control cholesterol nician can be hard on your liver. Check it out. Use Red Yeast Rice if your really worried about cholesterol. Mine is over 300, and has been for 30 years but my arteries are clean as a whistle. Read "The Cholesterol Myth". It's free.

    Thank you. That was a very interesting read. I also went to the website and they have terrific information on interaction of Vitamin D and Vitamin K2 (MK-4 and MK-7). I am starting Vitamin K2 supplements later this month.

    K2 is awesome and pretty underutilized
