Ridgecrest Herbals Blood Pressure Formula - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Ridgecrest Herbals Blood Pressure Formula is a Chinese herbal blend that combines many different ingredients in a multi-faceted approach to circulatory health. Originally introduced in 2001, Ridgecrest Herbals Blood Pressure Formula has been one of our best-sellers for many years, until it was slightly reformulated in 2012 to make it even more cost-effective, as well as vegan-friendly.
Ridgecrest Herbals Blood Pressure Formula approach to blood pressure is tonic in nature, focused on helping the body to better regulate itself, rather than simply hammering on symptoms directly. Ridgecrest Herbals Blood Pressure Formula uses a complex blend of many herbs, including Gastrodia and Gambia which have been used traditionally for the relief of headaches, dizziness, numbness in extremities and tinnitus that often accompany blood pressure problems. Other ingredients include Gardenia fruit, Chinese Motherwort, Eucommia Bark and Mulberry Mistletoe, which are traditionally used to support the liver and kidneys. Improving blood flow through the kidneys and liver can help support healthy blood pressure throughout the body. Other herbs included in the formula help to relieve stress, aid gallbladder function and balance other body systems to provide gentle circulatory support.
Circulating blood from the heart to every part of the body, and back again, is one of the body’s most important functions. Each time the heart beats (60-70 times per minute, resting) blood is forced into the arteries pushing against the arterial walls. This force is known as blood pressure and is measured with two numbers. The first or top (larger) number is the systolic pressure, or maximum pressure as the heart beats. The bottom number is the diastolic pressure, which is when the heart is at rest between beats. Although it varies with each person, 120/80 is usually considered “normal”, and pressures that deviate too far from the normal range can spell trouble.
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a very common circulatory issue. High blood pressure is dangerous because it causes the heart to overwork, contributes to the hardening of arteries and later may lead to heart failure. Often specific causes for high blood pressure are unknown. However, many factors can play a role, including smoking, alcohol, being overweight, poor diet, too much salt, lack of exercise, too much stress, and chronic kidney, adrenal, and thyroid disorders.
Preventing high blood pressure may be as simple as maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A nutritious, low fat diet high in vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and lean proteins, coupled with regular exercise and other stress relieving activities, can have a profound effect on heart and circulatory health.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use Blood Pressure Formula with other products?
Yes, you can. Blood Pressure Formula doesn't usually interfere with other products. However, Blood Pressure Formula is a tonic formula, which helps your body to better regulate itself. If you are using other products (like diuretics or vasodilators) to help keep your blood pressure “normal”, they may need to be reduced. Monitor your blood pressure carefully and adjust them as needed.
Can I stop taking my prescription medications when taking Blood Pressure Formula?
No, don't stop taking prescribed blood pressure medications unless your doctor tells you to. If you are currently on blood pressure medication, you should NOT take Blood Pressure Formula without your doctor's supervision. Blood pressure prescriptions are dosed for your body's natural blood pressure level, like a carefully balanced weight pulling pressure down to “normal”. If your body's natural blood pressure level changes then your prescription will need to be adjusted. Your body's natural blood pressure can also be affected by diet, exercise, age, mood, stress, and many other factors, so it's important to see your doctor regularly if you are taking blood pressure medications.

Ridgecrest Herbals Philosophy
At RidgeCrest Herbals, their goal is to make the best natural remedies available anywhere, remedies that make a real difference. They summarize our unique approach in three words: Eclectic, Innovative, and Effective.
Eclectic means choosing the best from a variety of disciplines or styles. Ridgecrest Herbals doesn’t believe that any one health discipline holds a monopoly on effectiveness. Many health problems are nearly universal throughout the world, and have been successfully treated in many different ways across time and in different cultures. They search the world for natural ingredients and methods that show promising results, and don’t limit ourselves to any one culture or discipline.
In many cases, traditional methods can be improved with modern insights. By the same token, approaches used in one discipline can be refined by concepts from another. But such innovations must be approached carefully to preserve the traditional benefits. Some of Ridgecrest Herbals' innovations include homeoactive encapsulation, a way of combining homeopathics with herbs or nutrients for maximum potency, and Portfolio formulation, a way of using small doses of many ingredients to increase the safety and efficacy of herbal formulations.
Any natural remedy must be measured by its results. Ridgecrest Herbals' formulas work very well – or they go back to the drawing board. Many of their formulas are best-sellers in their category. They stand behind their products absolutely, and every day, they build their reputation for “Guaranteed Results, Naturally!”.
Many of their products work so fast (within a day). Others may take days, or even weeks to produce noticeable results. But whether they work in hours, days, or weeks, Ridgecrest Herbals always stands behind their products.
About Ridgecrest Herbals
Ridgecrest Herbals, Inc. (RidgeCrest), a Utah corporation, has deep roots in the natural products industry. Started in 1986 as Creative Marketing, a consulting and telemarketing company, over the years it evolved into a manufacturer and distributor of over-the-counter (OTC) herbal medicines and other herbal formulations, sold primarily to natural healing professionals (chiropractors, midwives, and naturopaths). But in 1994, after foundering in the professional market, new management and capital came into the company, the company was launched in a new direction, and the company was reincorporated in its present form. To reflect the changes in function of the company, the name was changed to Ridgecrest Herbals in 1996.
Clyde StClair was one of the new founders of the company. In 1994, Clyde had over 30 years experience in supplement manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing. At that time, he was working as a consultant to a California company that had acquired Creative Marketing’s line of herbal remedies. This herbal products division was losing money, and Clyde was hired to help evaluate the company’s options. Clyde realized that the product line had little hope in the professional market, which was small and fragmented, but might have a better chance in health food stores. But the change would require a complete overhaul of the product line and marketing channels, and the existing company had no stomach for that kind of risk. He needed an experienced partner to help him accomplish the plan.
Paul Warnock, the other new founder, was consulting with the same California company, with a 30-year background in corporate finance, accounting, and operations, especially corporate turnarounds. Clyde and Paul made an offer to purchase the problem product line and retool it for the health food market, and their offer was gratefully accepted. Together they founded RidgeCrest Herbals in 1994, with Clyde handling the marketing, and Paul managing the operations and accounting.
By 1998, RidgeCrest Herbals had established ClearLungs as the best-selling natural lung product in the US market, and a number of other products were also category leaders. But in 2001, a series of health problems caused the two partners to withdraw somewhat from the business, and they brought in an outside sales management firm, and Paul’s son Matt as Chief Operations Officer. In 2003, Matt became VP of Marketing as well as COO, and he was appointed President in 2005. Matt and Paul bought out Clyde’s interest in 2007, and Clyde passed away from Parkinson’s disease in 2010.
Since 2005, the company has consistently grown its product line and revenues, moving to a new facility with room for more expansion in 2009. Ridgecrest owns all rights to the formulas and trade names. All manufacturing is done in the United States, to our specifications, by highly qualified contract manufacturers. RidgeCrest makes over two dozen formulas, including both herbal supplements, and over-the-counter (OTC) homeopathic medicines with herbal support. More products are under development and testing. Today the company is poised to break new ground with natural remedies that are more effective than ever. And as always, they stand behind their products with their unconditional satisfaction guarantee:
“Guaranteed Results, Naturally!”
