Does ginseng raise blood pressure.

I need something to wake me up but want to avoid things that raise blood pressure. Caffeine raises it. Ginseng is supposed to wake you up but I wonder if it raises blood pressure.

Re: Does ginseng raise blood pressure.

Yes - certain kinds of ginsing raise your b/p - I stay away from it...but can I suggest you doing some research of the different kinds & what it does to hbp...Never ever take hawthorne berries, which is noted to reduce b/p, but only in those not taking beta, channel blockers & others. If you are taking b/p meds it can nullify the effect - I know I tried it & have been trying to recoop for 5 days now. Be careful & know your herbs - Good Luck.

Thanks! Yeah that's why I never take any herbs I always end up reading about some bad side effect and you really never know what's in that stuff it's not regulated by the FDA.
