I was looking for something that I already had in the house to help lower my blood pressure (hypertension) when I saw your Arginine/NAC post. Thank you. I had no idea NAC regulated blood pressure. And it did so without the use of Arginine. I took two 600mg NAC before dinner (My blood pressure usually goes up when I eat). My blood pressure did not go up. I was surprised. As a matter of fact, I looked a the blood pressure machine and said, "you're beautiful." This has been war!
Last week my blood pressure was hitting around 179/100. I had tried everything that usually worked to lower blood pressure at least a few hours, but nothing would regulate it. My doctor has never prescribed blood pressure pills for me, a person's blood pressure had to be steadily high for her to put you on them.
A couple of nights, I wrestled with my blood pressure all night long. It would slowly creep back up. What has helped in the past better than anything was water-pills, that's all night work.
I have taken NAC before, I heard that NAC is the precursor of Glutathione. I have also heard that Glutathione was the fountain of youth. Therefore, I bought some and used it from time to time. I had no idea that it was affecting my blood pressure one way or the other.
During the last ten years, I have used up maybe three or four bottles of NAC. I never even realized it was doing anything until someone said it helps with COVD symptoms. When I Checked Earth Clinic for hypertension help, I saw where you said it helps lower blood pressure.
The NAC regulated my blood pressure the same day and hour, and it stayed good all night. I will not be taking NAC along with other supplements that might lower blood pressure; the pressure may go to low. Today I took it at the same time as yesterday, I also took Vanadyl Sulfate to help regulate blood sugar and my blood pressure dipped to 105/57. This has happened a few times in the past, but I never knew why.
It's just nice to know all about what you are taking. I have looked at several articles online about NAC. Most of them failed to mention that it helps lower blood pressure.
I am sure people should check with their doctor about this supplement because of possible side effects. But it is certainly a great help until you get there.
