    No hypertensive medications have been shown to decrease or stablilize plaque formation; rather you need an anti-hyperlipidemic medication or medications.

    Statin medications such as atorvastatin sometimes in combination with long acting niacin (Niaspan) can be very effect per the HATS and ARBITOR2 trials. Get your cholesterol checked. If you do not have known heart disease (like a prior heart attack or stent) then your LDL should be at 100 or less and your HDL, as high as possible.

    Good luck.

    Monavie is definitely a great alternative to taking drugs with side effects.
    Dr. Alexander Schauss has studied the acai berry for 15 years.
    Monavie is a blend of 19 fruits from around the world, with the Brazilian acai berry being the crown jewel. Monavie Active has glucosamine and helps with joint health and recovery time. Monavie is very high in antioxidants and will rebuild your body at the cellular level.
    I love it because it tastes great and you take 2 oz in the morning and 2 oz at night and it gives you 13 fruit servings. It gives me energy and also helps me sleep.
    The fruits are from all around the world and you could not afford them even if you could get them.

    Monavie Pulse is designed for heart health.
    Monavie Kosher is now available as well.
    Monavie is coming out with an energy drink in June that will taste great and be good for you.
    I would be glad to answer any further questions about Monavie. Contact me at our website.
