Elevated blood pressure significantly increases the risks of non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular, nervous and renal related problem. 1.13 billion people worldwide are estimated to have hypertension in which two-thirds were living in under-developing and developing countries. One of the global targets mentioned by WHO is to reduce the prevalence of hypertension by 25% before 2025. Various antihypertensive agents such as Calcium channel blockers, thiazide diuretics, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) and ß-blockers are used to treat hypertension. Among these, Calcium channel blockers have shown best effect to reduce hypertension compared to the other recommended agents.
