#50. CoQ10 (64 non-drug ways to lower blood pressure)

Meta-analysis of clinical trials of CoQ10 (coenzyme Q10) for hypertension have found that it has potential in hypertensive patients to lower systolic blood pressure by up to 17 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by up to 10 mm Hg without significant side-effects.
Typically it takes from 4 to 12 weeks before the benefits are observed. While CoQ10 is a usually taken as a supplement there are dietary sources such as oily fish, organ meats such as liver, and whole grains. A balanced diet should for most individuals provide all the CoQ10 you need, but there may be a class of individuals for which CoQ10 is highly beneficial, or for which dietary changes provide  BP lowering.

I happen to like liver, and sardines, so that a positive point, in including them in my diet.   It hard to tell if having an BP lowering effect, but it seems to improve my health and energy levels.
