Keto and Blood Pressure

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg September 29, 2018

The keto diet has been shown to be effective for weight loss and reducing blood pressure. While the keto diet may cause a slight increase in blood pressure for some people, it is generally considered safe for most people with hypertension. In fact, the keto diet can actually help to lower blood pressure by promoting weight loss and improving insulin sensitivity. If you are concerned about keto and blood pressure, speak to your doctor or a registered dietitian to get more information.

If you are looking for natural ways to lower blood pressure, there are a few herbs and supplements that may help. Beta-blockers are one class of medications that can be used to treat hypertension. Beta-blockers work by blocking the effects of the hormone epinephrine, which can help to reduce blood pressure. Some natural beta blockers include ginger, garlic, and magnesium.
