For high blood pressure Can i take garlic supplements or do home remedies to regulate my pressure instead of taking meds with bad side affects?

Anyone who knows about natural supplements especially curcovia? Is it safe to take it while on high blood pressure medications. My gp doesn't know

"Curcovia": "curcovia" is a trade name for curcuma comosa, an herb in the ginger family. It's related to the more well-known curcuma longa, the tasty spice turmeric. It has at least weak estrogenic activity. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23552522 there's no interaction info w/bp meds -- but as w/the other curcumas, i'd suggest caution with anticoagulants like aspirin. Also it's expensive: $79 a month. ...Read more

This : This should be fine, but with a few caveats. First. L-arginine is an unproven dietary supplement. It may be helpful, but there is no convincing evidence. And just because it is a natural supplement does not mean it is necessarily safe. If you haven't already, a more effective and natural way to help your blood pressure would be to cut out sodium and increase your intake of fresh foods. Your combination of drugs indicates to me that you have a substantial blood pressure problem. You should discuss these supplements with your physician and your pharmacist to be sure there are no interactions, and always let healthcare professionals know what supplements and over-the-counter medicines you are taking in addition to your prescriptions. Although uncommon, in some cases these ordinary supplements and otc meds can cause negative drug interactions with your important prescriptions. ...Read more
