I consider 140/90 to be normal, and 160/100 to be somewhat high, but your readings are much too high, even when the heart is between beats.
For supplements, I would suggest cayanne first, because it will improve circulation bigtime. Next, I would suggest Arginine, because it will promote nitric oxide, which will dilate arteries and improve blood flow. Next hawthorn, then lots of C with bioflavonoids, and fish oil along with lots of E in mixed form.
Also take some Co Q10 daily along with alpha-lipoic acid, and some antioxidants from fruit and berry extracts.
Make sure you are getting plenty of magnesium (from citrate) as well as having optimum D3 on a daily basis.
I would not be surprised to hear that you are 50 pounds overweight or more. If that is the case, exercise is crutial.
Having said all of the above, I would also suggest a four to seven day fast. That would bring all your numbers back down into the normal zone.
Not just blood pressure, but also blood sugar, homocysteine, C-reactive protein, as well as weight.
On a final note, if you are overweight and have difficulty losing, try taking Lugols iodine on a daily basis as well, and eliminate chlorine, which means no tap water. You will need plenty of good "pure" water to help flush out toxins..
I almost forgot to mention that chocolate helps drop high blood pressure better than anything the doctor can give you, and it doesn't have any nasty side effects. Of course I am referring to the dark chocolate and not milk chocolate... which is totally useless.
Beet juice is also known to help.
