Cardiovascular Health – Blood Pressure Support

Protocol development in integrative medicine is not typically a simple process. Individuals require individualized care, and what works for one patient may not work for another.

To establish these protocols, we first developed a Rating Scale that could be used to discern the rigor of evidence supporting a specific nutrient’s therapeutic effect.

The following protocols were developed using only A through B-quality evidence.

Systematic review or meta-analysis of human trials
RDBPC human trials
2+ studies and/or 1 study with 50 + subjects


300-450 mg of elemental magnesium, total per day, 1 to 6 months1,2

  • Consistent supplementation resulted in a decrease of both systolic and diastolic blood pressure1,2
  • An inverse correlation between levels of circulating magnesium and the incidence of hypertension has been clearly identified3,4

2.4 g, total per day, minimum 6 months5

  • Reduction in blood pressure observed in patients with mild to moderate hypertension5
  • Compared to placebo, L-arginine supplementation was shown to lower systolic blood pressure in patients with gestational hypertension6

Garlic (Allium sativum)

300 to 960 mg, total per day, minimum 8 to 12 weeks7,8,9

  • Consistent supplementation for 8-12 weeks has demonstrated a reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure7,8,9,10,11
  • Garlic supplementation is widely considered a safe and effective approach to hypertension7,8,10,11
