Millions of adults around the world suffer from hypertension, which can be treated with both proper medication and lifestyle changes.

In addition to changes in diet and exercise levels, some herbs have been shown to help manage blood pressure.

Some of this is :

#2 Cinnamon: It is famous for its anti-diabetic properties, however it also has antihypertensive action. Its extract can help both in the treatment of a sudden hypertensive crisis and in the management of chronic hypertension.

One of them, in the review The Journal of Nutrition, indicated that the desired result is obtained by consuming 30-50 grams of whole or grated flaxseed a day for at least 12 weeks.

#5 Garlic: It is probably the best known natural solution for treating hypertension. This effect is due to its ability to increase levels of nitric oxide, which promotes relaxation and dilation of blood vessels. Thus, the blood circulates freely and the blood pressure drops to normal levels.
