Vasodilation means opening up or dilatation of blood vessels, which will often decreases blood pressure. I put together a list of supplements (with links to PubMed studies) that reduces blood pressure in a September 2019 post. An item that reduces blood pressure does not always mean that it does vasodilation. Some migraines and headaches are improved by vasodilation
In this post I will review these and other supplements that dilation of blood pressures.
- Niacin (Vitamin B3) — my long time favorite. Does nicotinic acid (niacin) lower blood pressure? 
- Magnesium — Mechanisms of magnesium-induced vasodilation in cerebral penetrating arterioles 
- PUFA – Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA) Are Cerebral Vasodilators via the TREK-1 Potassium Channel 
- l-Arginine – l-Arginine Induces Nitric Oxide–Dependent Vasodilation in Patients With Critical Limb Ischemia 
- Vitamin C – Vitamin C Improves Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation in Forearm Resistance Vessels of Humans With Hypercholesterolemia 
- Resveratrol — Evidence for Circulatory Benefits of Resveratrol in Humans 
- coenzyme Q10 —Effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation (300 mg/day) on antioxidation and anti-inflammation in coronary artery disease patients during statins therapy: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial 
- Melatonin —Melatonin Mediates Vasodilation Through Both Direct and Indirect Activation of BK Ca Channels 
- Lycopene — Lycopene and Vascular Health 
- Taurine — Taurine Supplementation Lowers Blood Pressure and Improves Vascular Function in Prehypertension 
- Piracetam – Establishing Natural Nootropics: Recent Molecular Enhancement Influenced by Natural Nootropic 
- Potassium — Role of Potassium in Regulating Blood Flow and Blood Pressure 
And so on, almost every item that reduces blood pressure also induces vasodilation (not really much of a surprise).
