Milk And Soy Protein Supplements Associated With Reductions In Blood Pressure

July 19, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. clinical study involving 352 adults at risk for high blood pressure, or with mild hypertension, has found that a daily supplement of milk or soy protein had a more significant impact on systolic blood pressure than refined carbohydrate dietary supplements. According to the researchers, their study is the first to show that milk protein lowers blood pressure for people with pre-hypertension and stage-1 high blood pressure. When compared to taking a refined carbohydrate supplement: those who took the milk protein supplement had a 2.3 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) lower systolic blood pressure; and those who took the soy protein supplement had a 2.0 mmHg lower systolic blood pressure. No decreases in diastolic pressure were found in the study.
