Claude. Yes, this herb can lower the Blood Pressure.
However, I would like to name a few other herbs which are very effective and are widely used to cure High Blood Pressure.
Avocado, Mistletoe, Tinospora Cordifolia, Banana, and Indian Snakeroot.
You must read the Page High Blood Pressure on this website. It is very detailed and I am sure it will of great help to you.

Dear Marvin Coble Shell Ginger has nothing to do with the Prostate. Here are few remedies that will cure your Prostate.
1. Consume one capsule of Pumpkin Seed Oil once in a day. Take it for 20 days only.
2. Take One Querceitin capsule of 250mg every day. Take it for 15 days only.

shell ginger...does it help to cure lung cancer?

I do not know why is everyone talking about Cancer on this page, I do not see that this herb cures cancer. The best cure for Lung Cancer is Soursop juice and Fagonia Cretica tea.
You may try these two Ellie. Did you see Lung Cancer page of Herbpathy ? You must. It is worth the read.

Hello, I want to ask if this plant shell ginger will cure cancer. There is video on the internet that it clearly stating that shell ginger is curing cancer.
23 May 2017
Shell Ginger tea can help to cure Cancer. You may try this herb for once and see it for yourself. There is not much evidence to support it. I have also read that it can help to cure cancer. The best thing to do is to try the herb.
