High Blood Pressure Medicine

Ace Inhibitors high blood pressure medicine

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE Inhibitors) and angiotensin receptor blockers
The angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and the angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) drugs both affect the renin-angiotensin hormonal system, which, as mentioned previously, helps regulate the blood pressure. The ACE inhibitors work by blocking (inhibiting) an enzyme that converts the inactive form of angiotensin in the blood to its active form. The active form of angiotensin constricts or narrows the arteries, but the inactive form cannot. With an ACE inhibitor as a high blood pressure medicine, 50 to 60 percent of Caucasians usually achieve good blood pressure control.
