Answer:

ACE inhibitors. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors work within the kidneys were ACE is manufactured. ACE causes vasoconstriction, therefore increasing blood pressure. Medications that inhibit the production of ACE allow for blood to flow more freely, across a low gradient, therefore reducing blood pressure in those with hypertension.
