Lisinopril And Blood Pressure Medications Derived From Snake VenomUpdated
Someone told me this is made from snake venom, is that true? Is that how the blood pressure is reduced?
This is an interesting question that I would like to find out more information on as well...
Based on my research, Lisinopril is reportedly a "synthetic peptide derivative" - which from what I understand, has the properties of a long-acting angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor.
It's chemical description is listed as follows: (S)-1-[N2-(1-carboxy-3-phenylpropyl)-L-lysyl]-L-proline dihydrate
If you have a specific drug manufacturer in mind who makes Lisinopril or other blood pressure medications, perhaps it would be best to contact them directly for more specific details.
I hope this helps!
