Pycnogenol Lowers Blood pressure

Another way to lower blood pressure is to take pycnogenol. I have written extensively about this wonder herb on this blog but here I'd just like to tell you how it lowers blood pressure. What it does is amazing. As one study said, "Supplementation of Pycnogenol is effective in decreasing systolic blood pressure in mildly hypertensive patients." (See note 1.) It works by increasing nitrous oxide. (See note 2.)
