Post High Blood Pressure after 3 months on 8 g Vitamin C/lysine
Quote:
I've been taking ascorbic acid for about 3 months now but my blood pressure is still high 140/150 90 I take about 1 good teaspoon of asc acid & the same of lycine twice a day am wondering if the ascorbic acid i use is good enough it says it pure phama grade or should i be taking more of it.I would buy your products but with shipping to oz it gets a bit expensive & being a single parent of 4 kids money is tight anyway I would appreciate your thoughts thanks Phil



One teaspoon is roughly 4000 mg, so you are definitely taking enough lysine, but perhaps 8000 mg of vitamin C may not be enough for your metabolism? But you are very close to the therapeutic amount/dosage that works for most people.

You might check this table for the "preventive" amount of daily vitamin C based on body weight/age (table/formula towards end of this topic)

johnwen (the author) says to double whatever number you compute for therapeutic effect.

Also, knowing any medications you are taking, age, time of day, how when BP taken, stress, etc. would help formulate some answers.

Note: Magnesium, CoQ10, and 200 mg of vitamin B6 are good nutrients for lowering blood pressure.

Hello

One thing i would like to ask panel of experts is about the causes of high blood pressure.
Are there any other factors which could cause high blood pressure in people. For instance : kidney problems or any other heath issues?
Thanks

Miro

Both questions can probably be answered Best with One Word!

STRESS!

Sounds Stressful to Me!

He is doing the right thing with the C & Lysine this will keep the pipes flexible and functioning.
Phosphatidyl serine about 300 mg a day could possibly help!

Valgata
Do a search on HPA Axis and Adrenal Fatigue.
You'll find an answer to your question would require a very large writting to answer it
but 90% of time it's stress related. Stress encompasses many many functions also.
