3 herbs that can help with high blood pressure.

High blood pressure also known as hypertension is a serious condition in which blood pressure measures more than 130/80 millimeters of mercury (mmHg). If you have high blood pressure, you have a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease. 

According to VeryWellHealth, herbs that can help with high blood pressure include:

1. Ginger. Ginger may help in boosting the healthy circulation of blood. This is the reason most people try to use ginger to reduce their blood pressure.

2. Garlic. It contains allicin which may help relax blood vessels and also promote healthy blood flow. Some studies have even shown that garlic extract can affect blood pressure similarly to the way some medications do.

3. Cinnamon. Some animal studies suggest that cinnamon opens up and relaxes the blood vessels, lowering blood pressure. Human studies also indicate that the consistent intake of cinnamon may support healthy blood pressure alongside other therapies
