Ginger—the smart man’s aspirin—is a potent blood thinner and anti-inflammatory agent that can help you reduce your blood pressure. You can try commercial organic ginger teas, or make your own from ginger root. Simply chop the root into small pieces and boil for about five minutes.

Ginger can be used to improve blood circulation and relax the muscles that surround blood vessels. In animal models, studies have found that ginger’s blood pressure-lowering effects are mediated by voltage-dependent calcium channels.

For example, certain dosages of ginger extract have been associated with a fall in the arterial blood pressure, as well as with a decrease of muscle contractions. However, studies are inconclusive and further research is necessary to corroborate this benefit of ginger.

It is important to consider ginger side effects and interactions before start consuming it for medicinal purposes. Because ginger may lower blood pressure, it is not recommended to take it with high blood pressure medications, as it may raise the risk of developing low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat.

Eating fresh, raw ginger, as well as consuming dried ginger, drinking ginger tea, or taking ginger supplements, are all effective ways of reaping its hypotensive properties. However, it is not recommended that adults consume more than four grams of ginger a day in any form. Pregnant women should not consume more than one gram of ginger a day.
