Angiotensin II receptor blockers are oral medications that help relax your blood vessels, lowering your blood pressure and making it easier for your heart to pump blood. Angiotensin II occurs naturally in your body and works to narrow your blood vessels. This narrowing can increase your blood pressure. Additionally, it is involved in the release of a hormone that increases the amount of sodium and water in your body, which can also lead to higher blood pressure. Angiotensin II is also involved in the thickening and stiffening of the walls of your blood vessels and heart.
