What do we want to know about that isn't a COVID question?

Second most searched health question on Google: How to lower blood pressure?

Terry's answer: Olive leaf and grape seed!

A meta analysis of 16 trials on grape seed in over 800 patients confirmed that grape seed is effective at reducing blood pressure levels - without significant adverse effects.

In a study of identical twins with borderline high blood pressure, one of the pairs received olive leaf while their twin was not treated.

Results: the twins receiving olive leaf saw a reduction of up to 13 points in systolic blood pressure and 5 points in diastolic blood pressure, while the twins in the placebo group saw no reduction.

What to look for: 500 mg olive leaf standardized to oleuropein, with 100 mg tannin-free, French grape seed extract.  Take twice daily.

Keep in Mind!  Not all herbs will qualify to be effective against high blood pressure or any disease you wish to treat or prevent.  The quality and standardization of the herbs in question will determine if they are true medicines or poor quality (junk), and not worth buying.  Buy a trusted brand.  The most expensive product, regardless of the price, is the product that doesn't provide results.
