My husband's BP was a bit higher than yours. He started with a prescription of 40 mg Benicar. It only helped a little. He is slightly overweight and 53 years old. He is now walking briskly for 30-60 minutes a day (started with 15 slowly). He takes multi-vitamins & minerals including nutritional yeast. Garlic helps move fat from the blood and body. I began cooking with garlic and he also takes an odorless supplement. He takes CO Q10 and Taurine, Salmon Oil, Soy products. He used to love milk and would drink up to a gallon a day. I switch him to Silk Soy Milk which he really likes. I try to get him to eat more fruits and vegetables. He drastically reduced his caffeine intake. It's been about 3 months and his blood pressure readings are consistently between 128/75 to 118/63. He stays on the Benicar and his doctor is really happy. Something is working. Good Luck .
