Bringing up this old thread because I am experiencing at least some of the Kyolic + Vitamin C effect described. In a recent thread we've been talking about garlic for CVD, benefits of which are not entirely clear, but garlic for blood pressure is more well established.
Three weeks ago I finally acknowledged that my blood pressure had become a problem after several months of upward creeps in the 130's, then 140's, and finally two readings of 150/100. I started on Kylolic and Vitamin C as described, then ten days ago started taking Lisinopril 10mg daily. Today (10am) my bp was 102/78, a difference of -48/-22. This is too low for me; I may be having symptoms of low blood pressure (incredibly tired, trouble getting out of bed, some dizziness) so will back off.
Can't pin it on only garlic + Vit. C. Confounders include: Incomplete BP readings (should be taking daily, not), multiple supplements (Lisinopril, Kyolic, Vit. C, L-Citrulline), diet adjustments (daily NO boosting salads, near-daily beets, POM juice, lowering fat), and more exercise.
