There are several foods that you can use to lower your blood pressure, and the great thing about doing it with diet is that you avoid the extra expense and side effects of prescriptions. Some of them are: Very dark chocolate with no added milk Cold water fish like salmon Garlic - this one is great and very effective Water - trust me. Increase your water intake and see for yourself Increasing your intake of leafy and high fiber vegetables while shifting toward lean meat choices is also effective. Cutting down on the salt is also useful.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
