- Take baby aspirin: Most people think baby aspirin is only used to prevent heart attacks by thinning the blood, but it can also reduce high blood pressure by slowing production of the hormones that control blood pressure while you sleep. Take it at night to help you lower blood pressure when you wake up in the morning, the time when you are more likely to have elevated blood pressure due to constricted blood vessels. If you’re over 40, or if you have risk factors for high blood pressure, take two baby aspirin at night.
- Drink hibiscus tea: Drinking three cups of hibiscus tea has been shown to help lower blood pressure. It's available at health food stores for about $5.
