Hypertension: Lisinopril works by addressing the hormones from the kidney and therefore will not slow the heart. You should work on the underlying cause of high blood pressure which is usually foods rich in sugar and processed foods with salt avoid these. Walk 15 minutes and drink plenty of water in between meals.
