Hypertension is one of the most common causes of morbidity and premature death worldwide. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition of an increase in systolic blood pressure ≥140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure ≥90 mmHg. Hypertension is very dangerous because in most cases there are no symptoms in the sufferer (silent killer). Conventional treatment for hypertension often causes various side effects, so that the choice of herbal treatment is being considered more. Medicinal plants such as Cratoxylum formosum, Adansonia digitata L., Vitex pubescens, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Catharanthus roseus, Crotalaria burhia, Leersia hexandra, Moringa oleifera L., Allanblackia floribunda, Holarrhena floribunda, Berberis vulgaris, Morinda citrifolia L., Ficus carica, Bidens pilosa, Panax ginseng, Lantana camara, Allium sativum, Apium graveolens, Vitex cienkowskii, and Achillea wilhelmsii have antihypertensive activity which can be used as an alternative in the treatment and prevention of hypertension. This review article used the literature study method of national and international journals published in the last 10 years (2010-2020) that was done through several websites such as ScienceDirect, NCBI, ResearchGate and Google Scholar.
