Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.
But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) may be one of the best herbal medicine used in reduced blood pressure in patients with hypertension.

Asparagus is a flowering plant belong to species the genus Asparagus, native to the western coasts of northern Spain, north to Ireland, Great Britain, and northwest Germany, northern Africa and western Asia, used from early times as a vegetable and medicine, because of its delicate flavour and diuretic properties.

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood. High blood pressure means raising pressure in your heart.If it stays high over time it can damage the body in many ways.
Hypertension is a condition of abnormally high blood pressure.

According to the Junior College of Kagawa Nutrition University, intake of asparagus significantly reduce Systolic blood pressure (SBP) (AD: 159 ± 4.8 mmHg, ND: 192 ± 14.7 mmHg) by inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity in upregulated blood pressure.

The study also suggested that the efficacy of this activity may be attributed to a chemical compound, 2″-hydroxynicotianamine  in inhibiting angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity in hypertension and preserved renal function.

In the total of 28 healthy volunteers injected of cladophylls and bottom-stems of asparagus study, cladophylls group improved many aspects of metabolic syndrome, but only diastolic blood pressure in comparison to significantly reduced the subjects' systolic and diastolic blood pressure in bottom-stems of asparagus intake group. 

Dr. Nishimura M, the lead of researcher suggested that these results may be attributed to asparagus cladophylls and bottom-stems properties in differentially attenuated hypertension, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia.

There is no doubt that asparagus has a potential effect in reduced high blood pressure, in inducing further renal damage, but large quantity intake should only be prescribed by herbalist as maximally tolerable doses of Asparagus P((R)) may induce opposite effects.
