In brief: Calcium

Calcium deposition can lead to hardening of arterial walls which in turn can stiffen them and lead to high BP.

In brief: It shouldn't

Dennis, There is no association between calcium supplementation and high blood pressure.
If you want to avoid high blood pressure, eat a whole foods, plant based diet, and exercise regularly. Hope this helps!
