❗ Blood Pressure Causes Hair Loss & Erectile Problems (2024)

Today I’m going to talk about how high blood pressure is linked to hair loss and erectile problems.

Of course, high blood pressure is linked to lots of other health problems, but today will stick to hair and erections.

You’ll discover:

  • The real cause of high blood pressure
  • How blood pressure drugs cause hair loss and erectile problems
  • The TWO blood pressure drugs that can actually GROW head hair and give harder erections
  • Natural ways to have healthy blood pressure.

And this all starts from a subscriber question:

“Dr. Sam – I have hypertension. I’ve had high blood pressure for a couple of years and now my doctor has put me on medications for it. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed hair loss from it. I was already losing my hair, but ever since taking the drugs for hypertension, the hair loss has sped up. Oh, one other problem… My erections are very soft now. It’s embarrassing. Should I get off the drugs? I like having hair and good erections. But I also don’t want to get a heart attack or stroke. Is there a connection or am I just being paranoid?

This is an interesting question for a variety of reasons.

First of all, I have a family history of high blood pressure – so, this has been a very important topic for me for over 20 years. I’ll give you the specific natural solution I give to my parents.

Unfortunately, the older we get, the more blood pressure problems we have. And at the same time, the older we get, the more hair loss we have… And, the worse erections get as well for men.

The causes of high blood pressure are many factors, such as:

  • Weaker kidney function due to aging
  • Higher chance of extra body fat and weight gain, which is more stress on the body.
  • Higher cholesterol and blood sugar, which indirectly affect blood pressure.
  • Poor blood flow with plaque build-up or weaker arteries
  • And the biggest problem is hormonal imbalances as we age.

And since over 70% of adults have high blood pressure – this includes both men and women…

Blood Pressure Drugs

There are also dozens of different blood pressure drugs to be prescribed and thus, make money from by the pharmaceutical companies.

Not only are there so many drugs specifically for blood pressure, but there are over a dozen different CLASSES of blood pressure drugs, such as:

  • Diuretics
  • Beta-blockers
  • ACE inhibitors
  • Angiotensin II receptor blockers
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Alpha-blockers
  • Alpha-2 receptor agonists
  • Combined alpha and beta-blockers
  • Vasodilators
  • PDE5 Inhibitors


And on and on…

All of these drugs have side effects one of them being hair loss and yes, also erectile problems.

However, there are TWO exceptions.

  • There’s ONE specific hypertension drug, that actually grows head hair.
  • And there’s ONE class of drugs that lowers blood pressure and also improves erections.

And I’ll talk about both of these drugs in a minute…

So, to answer your question, yes – blood pressure drugs can cause hair loss and more accurately, speed up and accelerate hair loss.

And yes, these drugs also cause erection problems.

Also in women, hypertension drugs can cause diffuse hair loss, which is thinning, but not receding hair loss like it is seen in men.

So these drugs are bad. Ironically, having high blood pressure is also linked to hair loss in both men and women.

There are a few clinical studies in humans showing this.

One with over 610K thousand participants, and another with almost 40K participants, all showing that between 30-45% linking hypertension to hair loss.

And this could be because high blood pressure can damage your arteries. Which means blood flow decreases.

And high blood pressure and poor blood flow negatively affect all the organs in your body – your heart, brain, kidneys, and yes, your hair follicles and penis.

What Should You Do To Lower Blood Pressure

So before I continue and reveal natural ways of improving blood pressure, without using blood pressure drugs, which can accelerate hair loss and cause erectile problems … let’s recap what we’ve learned so far.

  • High blood pressure affects most people as they age.
  • High blood pressure is linked to hair loss and erectile problems.
  • Hypertension drugs have side effects, one of them being hair loss and the other being poor erections.

So now comes the million dollar question: What are you supposed to do if you have high blood pressure and you want to lower it to healthy levels … BUT you don’t want to take drugs that have side effects and can cause hair loss or erection problems.

Basically, how can you have healthy blood pressure AND reduce your risk for hair loss or impotence at the same time?

Well, we can do it naturally or with drugs.

I’ll do the drug method in a minute since there are a lot of precautions and potential problems. And, most people will not be able to get access to these 2 specific drugs.

Natural Ways To Lower Blood Pressure

So, let’s first start with natural ways.

Believe it or not, a good diet and exercise program will make big improvements in blood pressure.

The problem with diet and exercise is that:

  • It requires a lot of work, discipline, and dedication. So, most people will just not do it long-term
  • It does NOT fix the underlying problems of hypertension due to aging and hormonal imbalances.

So, this is why I also tell people to take specific supplements to help promote healthy blood pressure levels.

Because the right ingredients work and are clinically researched.

And the biggest reason is that it’s so much easier, faster, and more convenient for most people to just take a pill – rather than change their lifestyle, diet, and exercise program.

Which means long-term progress and results.

So, let me quickly list the best, clinically researched ingredients for healthy blood pressure:

  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Hawthorn Berry Extract
  • Olive Leave Extract
  • Celery Seed Extract
  • Pomegranate Extract
  • Lycopene

Of course, I don’t expect you to purchase all of these individually. It’s too expensive.

This is why my parents and I take Blood Pressure Optimizer. It has a 20-year proven track record.

It has the ingredients I’ve mentioned at the correct dosage and extracts.

Plus, it’s so effective that you’re guaranteed results in 30 days or you get a full refund + an extra $100.00 cash back on top of it.

Now, let’s finish off with drug options.

High Blood Pressure Drugs And Growing Hair

In regards to hair loss

There is ONE hypertension drug that lowers blood pressure AND grows head hair and that’s called, Minoxidil.

You’ve probably heard of topical Rogain, which is the trademark name for Minoxidil, which you can now get in generic topical form anywhere.


It’s used to grow head hair.

However, what most people don’t know, is the original ORAL pill containing Minoxidil, was originally a blood pressure drug.

And, one of the side-effects or side benefits was hair growth.

In fact, it’s very powerful at growing hair.

Unfortunately, it grows hair on top of your head and everywhere else too – face, back, shoulders and so forth.

When the manufacturer of minoxidil found out about this cool side-effect for hair growth, they made a topical version called Rogain.

They figured that if Minoxidil is applied topically ONLY to the scalp, then it will only grow hair on the scalp and not the rest of your body, the way the oral pill does.

Which is partially true.

However, anything that’s topically applied, does still get absorbed systematically, into your whole body.

So topical Minixidil will still cause facial hair growth and it’s really seen when women use it since they naturally have no facial hair.

Since men are already somewhat hair, the body hair growth isn’t as dramatic.

Erections And Hair Loss

Now, let’s talk about erections and hair loss.

I’ve made an entire video about this and I’ll give you the link to that one at the end of this one.

But, a short summary is that the ingredient in Viagra, which is Sildenafil, is a PDE5 inhibitor. It works by increasing blood flow.

cialis viagra

It was originally made to improve blood pressure levels and still is, under the trademark name of Revatio.


However, one of the side-effects or side benefits of Sildenafil was erections.

So, the maker of the drug, which is Pfizer, rebranded and renamed the drug Viagra and sold it for erectile dysfunction and made billions.

By the way, Tadalafil, which is the ingredient found in Cialis, is also a PDE5 inhibitor like Viagra, which also helps lower blood pressure and is also used for erections.


So, let’s do another quick summary.

  • Poor blood pressure negatively affects hair loss and erections.
  • Minoxidil helps lower blood pressure and grow head hair.
  • PDE5 inhibitors such as Sildenafil and Tadalifl help lower blood pressure and improve erections.

Some of you will think, “Great, I’ll just use both and I’ll have a full head of hair with rock-hard erections”….

Well, you could…

However, the two combined can lower your blood pressure too much.

Plus, you don’t know what interactions both of these drugs will have with each other.

Also, before I go any further – I need to give a legal disclaimer – always speak to your doctor before you do anything. I’m not here to give you any medical advice.

So, now you have two drug options – which you’d have to speak to a doctor about and get prescriptions for. Which, 99% of doctors will NOT give you, certainly not for both.

I guess you could order it online without a prescription… but again, mixing drugs can cause very negative health problems, short and for sure long-term.

That’s why I suggest you FIRST start by improving your blood pressure with the right lifestyle – diet, exercise, and natural supplements.

It’s the BEST long-term solution.

And even if you do want to use the previously mentioned drugs, it’s very important that you first make the natural improvements so these drugs work better and at a lower dose, giving you more positives and fewer negative side effects.

Since my family has a history of high blood pressure, I suggest the diet and exercise, and for faster and easier results, take Blood Pressure Optimizer.

So, please take action, improve your blood pressure, and have healthier hair and better erections.
