: I am currently taking Yohimbe and Creatine to enhance my athletic performance. I recently had a blood pressure reading of 148/90. The Dr. told me that I should quit taking these supplements because they are effecting my BP. Doesn't everyone taking these supplements experience some increase in blood pressure? Is an increase in BP really a concern to an active athlete? If so what about exercise in general, it increases blood pressure. Your attention to my thoughts and questions is greatly appreciated.
I am not a physician but if I were you I would take the doc's advice. Your kidneys have to work extra hard to eliminate the excessive "garbage" generated by some supplements. This can result in HBP and other complications.
