In brief: Probably

Except for the green tea extract, none of the ingredients should have any effect on your blood pressure.
The green tea dose contain some caffeine-the company won't say how much they use- which can raise your bp. The best weight loss is still eat a little less, and exercise a little more. By cutting your intake by only 500 calories per day, you can lose 1 lb per week.

A slice of bread = 50 Calories. Can of Coke + 150+ Cal. In Georgia, it's Sweet Tea by the Gallon! Empty calories.... Learn to drink water...for some an acquired taste but it is the second most vital nutrient, after oxygen that your body must have to function properly.

In brief: No!

The fact that the product contains hca (hydroxycitric acid) and a similar product, hydroxycut which also contains hca was the subject of an fda warning should say no.
Reports of liver failure, some to the point of requiring liver transplants should be enough to discourage it's use. Lipitor (atorvastatin) and Lisinopril are more than enough stress on your metabolic detox system without adding healthetrim.
