Natural Calcium Channel Blockers

Hey all,

I know that magnesium functions as a natural CC Blocker, and I have heard of Hawthorne (I think it was) being one as well.

Does anyone know of others?

I’m sure we all take Magnesium. If you don’t you need to for sure! But I am coming off of Verapamil and would like to have something with less side effects, so thought I would look into herbal/vitamin/mineral alternatives.

Thanks for your time. :smiley:

Butterbur looks like a calcium channel blocker.

Found a study done in Asia where Butterbur was tested for reducing hypertension that showed activity as a CCB. Sorry, no link. A search should turn it up.

There may be an issue getting a consistent safe dose however.
