What are you talking about? I'm trying to get a list of support supplements for people to take, IN ADDITION TO HAVING A DOCTOR, to help mitigate cardiovascular sides of AAS that do not involve prescription medications - unless needed. Not taking preventative care of your body while running juice is incredibly stupid.

I had pretty high B.P on cycle due to high estrogen (145/80). It improved slightly but was still high (135/75), so I implemented cardio, hibiscus tea and more veggies and potassium in diet. Definitely helped as more recent readings are considered normal.

Lose weight if necessary, do cardio, and eat healthier. On cycle B.P will always be elevated from your normal blood pressure, but if you are still hypertensive despite efforts to lower B.P, I would consider medication.

Also, make sure when you are using an appropriate cuff size. the standard adult size cuff is recommended only up to 13.5 inch arms.

Supplements can be hit or miss; I started using these things after looking into supposed benefits from studies:

Hibiscus tea
L-citrulline
Increase in potassium intake
Magnesium

Can't tell you which ones helped the most, but they all had studies backing them. I heard promising things about beet juice, but it tastes way too shitty for me to fuck with.

This isn't an appropriate response. The guy isn't asking how much lisinopril he should be self prescribing. Calm down captain.

All due respect, but I think pretty much everyone here is already past this point. And the OP was asking about SUPPS. Not drugs.

Fresh crushed garlic, couple of cloves each day. Low salt diet(that may affect your workouts and cramping). Stay away from processed foods, eat a lower carb diet, stock up on the veggies.


Aromasin and self phlebotomy of 250mls of blood. Lots of cardio. Get rid of body fat. These are what I do when the bp starts climbing.

Grape seed extract - 400mg
Celery seed extract (cant remember dose)
Citruline malate- 6g
Olive leaf extract (Cant remember dose)

I've used those very successfully in the past to control BP. Now that I'm older I've switched to milder cycles so Grape Seed extract and Citruline is all I use anymore.

Carditone
Cialis
Cardio
And stop being fat.

I consider fat anything over 10%. No reason to be over 12% as a bodybuilder on the right hormones.
