Is Your Pressure Too Low?

Hypertension gets a lot of attention in the health and wellness space. Yet, hypotension or low blood pressure (BP) is an equally dangerous health issue. In most cases, low blood pressure occurs occasionally and can improve over time. However, with chronic hypotension, vital organs like the heart and brain do not get enough oxygenated blood. This can lead to a series of unpleasant and potentially dangerous symptoms. In some cases, a supplement like B12 can help improve hypotension symptoms.


Symptoms and risk factors

Possible symptoms of hypotension include dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, nausea, fainting, clammy skin, and blurred vision. Some people may ignore mild symptoms of low BP, while others notice no symptoms. Chronic low blood pressure is often a sign of an underlying health condition such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, heart disorders, or dehydration. If left untreated, low blood pressure can require hospitalization. Severe cases are rare but can lead to organ damage or coma. Look for the signs, then talk to a doctor to determine the cause and receive treatment.

Can a vitamin help?

Sometimes, hypotension is a sign of a vitamin deficiency. Vitamin B12, 1 of the 8 essential B vitamins, may improve hypotension. B12 helps in hundreds of processes in the body, including forming red blood cells, energy, and a healthy nervous system. Persistent B12 deficiency can lead to fatigue, anemia, and nervous system disorders. Adults over 60 and vegans are more likely to experience B12 deficiencies. A supplement can help improve these symptoms and increase blood pressure to healthy levels.

The power of B

Research suggests B12 is a vital component in fighting hypotension and regulating blood pressure. Patients with hypotension can benefit from daily supplementation. A pharmacist can recommend a high-quality B12 vitamin that’s safe and effective. Sometimes, the pharmacist can create a custom supplement with compounding that includes other vitamins or minerals to manage BP effectively.

Supplement for low BP

Hypotension symptoms may indicate an underlying health problem, so always speak with a doctor as soon as possible if symptoms are identified. The doctor can find the best treatment for the patient’s specific situation. A pharmacist can step in if a B12 supplement is recommended, helping suggest specific products, discussing dosing, and creating a customized solution for better health and wellness.
