I am recently diagnosed as having initial higher blood pressure of 140/95 for the period of 5 days till today (regardless morning BP or evening BP). I am 45 years old , 95 kgs . Can the above reading be treated with gingko biloba? My GP used to give me Coversyl tablets for the past few months but the side effects really bordering me such as frequent abdomen pain (like needles pressed on my skin).
Here are some of the functions of Ginkgo:
Decreases blood clotting
Enhances learning and memorization
Improves circulation - which may be where you're benefiting
Increases serotonin receptors
It is possible gingkgo may promote a lower blood pressure; however, I would not rely on it alone. I recommend discussing your options with your physician. Also, look into diet and lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure.
All the best,
