Scientific Information on Symptoms of Orthostatic Hypotension

Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect symptoms of orthostatic hypotension
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The mo re evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
grade-c Marijuana Minor Very High See all 3 studies
While not affecting all users, some new users may experience symptoms of orthostatic hypotension associated with a global decrease of blood flow to the brain (rather than the expected increase)
grade-d Yohimbine Minor - See study
Orthostatic hypotension (light headedness upon rapidly standing up) appears to have reduced symptoms associated with yohimbine usage

All comparative evidence is now gathered in our ​A-to-Z Supplement Reference.

The evidence for each separate supplement is still freely available ​here.
