Hypotension (Low Blood Pressure)
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

See also Adrenal Fatigue

While not as readily recognized as high blood pressure, low pressure can also be a serious problem.
Low blood pressure can result in fatigue, fainting or dizziness. Low blood pressure may be the result of blood loss, but can also be due to glandular problems, particularly adrenal fatigue. An adrenal glandular like Adrenal Support or licorice root will often help this problem.

Shepherd's purse is one of the best vasoconstrictive herbs tightening vessels. It is not available as a single from NSP, but can be found in the Menstrual-Reg formula.

Capsicum and garlic tend to normalize blood pressure, reducing high blood pressure and increasing low blood pressure. Adaptogens can do the same thing.
