Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors prevent the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor, resulting in vasodilation, decreased systemic arterial resistance, and decreased blood pressure. In addition, ACE inhibitors decrease aldosterone production, resulting in reduced sodium and water retention; this also helps lower blood pressure.
