Although the best and safest bet for lowering your blood pressure is losing weight through diet and exercise, reducing your intake of sodium and reducing stress, its shown that two alcoholic drinks a day for a man and one drink a day for a woman will improve your blood pressure. Although alcohol can decrease your blood pressure, it will not decrease your blood pressure enough for it to be advised to the general public.

For alcohol to help lower your blood pressure, you must stick to the limit stated above. Those that exceed that limit of alcoholic drinks per day, the alcohol creates more fats in the blood which will increase blood pressure.
