Supplement help , an recommendations ?

Hi I am 46 years old and have trained with weights since about 16 on and off. I have used pro hormones in past etc... But have been diagnosed with moderate high blood pressure for which I take medication. Can anyone recommend any supplements that I can use to build muscle that won't elevate the blood pressure & are there any supplements I could take that may help me reduce it ?

    I think Beetroot powder is supposed to help with high blood pressure . Go Nutrition sell it in powder form. Im sure theres others that help with it.
    Building muscle-  make sure you get your protein quota in and creatine and cant see either of those affecting your blood pressure.

    i'll stay well clear of recommending anything to regulate blood pressure given you're taking medication but with regards to supplements to help build muscle, you can get your macro nutrient requirements from whole food sources. that way you can be sure nothing interacts with your medication.
    post up your diet, goals and macronutrient (protein, fat & carb) intakes for the day and it can be picked over where you can make improvements.

    There are some natural supps that can help with blood pressure but as Faip. advises I would only use them under advice from your G.P.
    Apart from a good whey protein I wouldnt really bother with Supplements.
    I would steer well clear of pre workouts with your condition.

    celerey seed or raw veg
    hawthorns berry

    would say speak with gp first about the above. But most only follow the pharmaceutical hand book and don't entertain herbs or alternate therapies
