Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors block an enzyme that is necessary to form a substance that narrows the blood vessels in the body. By blocking the enzyme, blood vessels relax and widen which allows blood to flow easier through the vessels and lowering blood pressure. ACE inhibitors also increase the release of salt and water in the urine which also lowers blood pressure.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
