Hi abbielynn81,

I don't know about how garninia cambogia may affect blood pressure, but it would be a good idea to speak with your doctor about possible side effects and whether it is your best option for weight loss. Here is some information on supplements and herbs for weight loss that you may be interested in. Also, our Weight Loss & Diet Plans Center is filled with information on how to safely lose weight, including diet plans you may want to try, a food and fitness planner where you can track food and exercise, good snack and recipes for weight loss, and more. Please let us know how you are doing!

Best wishes,
Atti
