In brief: Low blood pressure

No reason to do so unless passing out or dizziness associated with low blood pressure.
If such symptoms, then increasing salt and fluid intake is the first treatment.

In brief: Salt and Fluids

Increase your salt intake to >4gm per day and increase your fluid intake to >2l per day.
But the real question is: why?! in tribes never exposed to modern civilization, blood pressure remains in the 90s from birth to death. Why are you trying to raise it? 120 is not the goal.
