Regular consumption of yogurt helps, according to a new international study, to lower blood pressure in people with hypertension. Likewise, blueberries or even beetroot juice help stabilize hypertension.
Chronic disease more and more frequent in the world, arterial hypertension (HTA), according to estimates, affects one in three adults and has the particularity of imposing a fairly rigorous food line on people who suffer from it. Among the foods to be avoided by people with hypertension at the risk of creating complications, we can mention liquorice, salt or grapefruit juice.
At the same time, bananas, oatmeal or yogurt are recommended, which help stabilize blood pressure because of their richness in minerals. Likewise, blueberries or even beetroot juice help stabilize hypertension. And according to a new international study, led by Australian and American researchers, regular consumption of yogurt may help stabilize older people with high blood pressure.
According to researchers, yogurt’s anti-hypertensive properties lie in its content of calcium, a mineral with the ability to soften blood vessels and dilate them slightly, keeping blood pressure relatively low. Besides yogurt, tea is also considered to be very effective in the fight against high blood pressure.
