    Anyone with BP should simply take their prescription drugs. Alternatives

    like taurine, magnesium, omega 3, just name, simply does'nt work. I know it because i tried them. They cost a lot of money too.

    Having blood presssure is mostly heriditary. It has nothing to do with losing weight. l was diagnosed with BP years ago, I was 15 kilos lighter.

    It's just funny how a simple small pil can lower your BP, whilst fancy and expensive alternative supplements do nothing.

    One magnesium tablet and a glass of beetroot a day keeps my BP stable after ending up in A&E after taking only 2 amlodopine tablets. I am not taking anything else. Yes of course if you want to stay off drugs with horrendous side effects keep your weight down.
