Megadose vitamins to lower blood pressure?

Hi,

Hope all of you are fine and doing great. I have read that some unconventional drs treat cancer and hepatitis C with megadoses of vitamin C. There must be someone who tried some kind of supplements to lower blood pressure. I'm thinking about Vitamin B, C, Magnesium (but not megadose) and Omega3 Fish oil and Flaxseed.

I take Omega3 fish oil megadose, 7,000 mg Fish oil and sometimes 8,000 mg, to help with my arthritis and thyroid problem. So far it's working as good as NSAIDs, of course without the side effects. So why can't we naturally lower blood pressure with SAFE megadose vitamins???

Does anyone know anything about that?

Re: Megadose vitamins to lower blood pressure?

Vitamin C helps blood pressure a little bit, but Vitamin C is known as a powerful antioxidant which improves artery fuction, targets inflammation to lower CRP and stregthens the immune system. Folic Acid and Vitamin E also serve a similar role. Magnesium and Potassium can lower blood pressure as good as many medications. The only problem is to determine the proper dosage. Potassium can interract with HBP medications and too much can have a negative effect on the heart and kidneys. Magnesium can give you stomach issues including loose stools and also effect your calcium levels. Vitamin D and Calcium are probably the safest choices to lower blood pressure. Your doctor can monitor your Vitamin D levels. Depending how high your blood pressure is Vitamin D can help.

I have read that high doses of vitamin C lowers Manganese levels in the blood, amond other things. I think I can't experiment on myself , I will take 2 grams daily along with other vitamins.
Thanks for your reply
Michael
