Exercise might be another way to help lower your blood pressure. But if that doesn’t work, you could be faced with taking powerful drugs, which are often loaded with unpleasant side effects.

Magnesium and your blood pressure
Studies have shown that people who don’t get enough magnesium from their diets tend to have higher blood pressure than folks who eat magnesium-rich-foods. In one of the studies with the group of women with hypertension, half the women received a dose of magnesium equal to about twice what most of us get in our meals; the other half received an inactive pill known as placebo. The studies show that the blood pressure of the women taking the magnesium supplements dropped by about three points.
Just how does magnesium work? Is it really a blood-pressure-reducing magic? If you are willing to find ask your doctor about it. Eat magnesium-rich food and see if it works.
