MULTI VITAMINS AND BLOOD PRESSURE
Can someone with high or low blood pressure use Pharmaton SA?? Does Pharmaton increase appetite or could you recommend a good multivitamin/tonic that does?

Pumpkin, you’re welcome to take it if your hypertension is under control because the effect of the ginseng on blood pressure is really overrated. Take it for a month and have your blood pressure checked to see if it makes any difference. No vitamin will make you eat if you don’t want to. You can try an antihistamine like Longifene® or Periactin® as an appetite stimulant. Good luck.
