Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor is an oral medication used for the treatment of high blood pressure and weak heart muscle. ACE Inhibitors help relax blood vessels by preventing an enzyme in the body from producing angiotensin II, which is a component of the body's blood pressure regulating system. Angiotensin II affects your cardiovascular system by narrowing your blood vessels and releasing hormones that can raise your blood pressure, which can force your heart to work harder.
