Hawthorne,licorice &: Salt only raises BP significantly in a minority of people! Licorice root often raises BP. Hawthorne berries can raise it for those with low BP. Hypotension can be caused by low adrenal function so adrenal support herbs like ashwagandha and rhodiola may help. For other ideas see http://healthy-ojas.com/lowbp/hypotension-natural-herbal.html
