Fenugreek: Raises Blood Pressure

My mom's blood pressure has been on the rise. It got me wondering which herbal supplement raises blood pressure, it's Fenugreek.

Because Fenugreek is a diuretic, it makes you pee a lot more which makes your blood potassium deficient.

If you are going to use fenugreek, you really should consider eating bananas, walnuts, black beans, quinoa, to name a few potassium rich foods.

For now, we're holding off giving my mom anymore fenugreek until we talk to her Naturopath Doctor.

My next puzzle to solve is how much potassium type foods do you cook with fenugreek to keep blood pressure normalized.

Soon I'll write a post about Royal Camu. It's a supplement that my mom and I started to take a couple of weeks ago. So far, we both like this super food's affects.

  1. I don't know how true this statement about Fenugreek raising blood pressure is - I don't have enough test results to prove my assumption.

    However, my mom is taking fenugreek again with other supplements to lower blood pressure and she's doing superb.

    Fenugreek is a great herb with lots of healing properties.

  2. For most people, high blood pressure is a sign that the circulatory system (blood pipes) are partially obstructed and inelastic, and that the heart must pump blood at a higher pressure to reach the far corners of the body.This is really inspirational incident. Thank you very much for sharing with us.

  3. You are welcome. I believe the body can heal itself with the help of Mother Nature's medicine cabinet. In my opinion, Fenugreek is the best herb, good for so many ailments.

  4. I am on medication for High blood pressure, Vesotec, and am taking fungreek for over one year almost every morrning and my blood prossure start going higher than before taking the funugreek. I read some articles lately that it is not good to take fungreek when you have high blood pressure, do you think is the reason?

  5. It's hard for me to give you my opinion, I'm not a doctor.

    I would recommend seeing a Naturopath Doctor, one who is trained in herbal remedies.

    My mom is on an herbal remedy for blood pressure, Cardio HNT. It is working well for her, lowering her pressure when the pharma drugs were not.

    She takes both Lisinopril and Cardio HNT. She takes Fenugreek when she appears to be retaining fluid or when her blood sugars are a bit high.

    However, she hasn't needed fenugreek in a long time. I believe fenugreek is one of those herbs that fixes the body and you don't need to take it all the time.

    Why are you using Fenugreek?

    Himalayan Salt is supposed to help lower blood pressure. I wrote a blog post about it.

    Have you cut out all processed foods from your diet? That will also help you to lower your blood pressure.

    Eating garlic with fenugreek is also very good, the garlic makes the fenugreek more effective.

    Hope my answer helps and doesn't confuse you more. Thanks for reading my blog.

  9. Eating foods with potassium may help, but you should consult your doctor, especially if you have kidney disease (because you should limit it).

  10. UPDATE 2012

    Fenugreek has NOT elevated my blood pressure. However, I would consult a Naturopath Doctor who can determine if Fenugreek is right for you.

    Currently, I am taking it for my gall bladder issue (digestion) and as a weight loss aide.
