Research Finds Hesperidin In Orange Juice Could Help Lower Risk Factors For Cardiovascular Disease

December 1, 2010: 09:01 AM EST

Researchers believe that hesperidin, the major flavonoid found in orange juice can help lower blood pressure and the risks of cardiovascular disease. A study with 24 healthy but overweight men spanning three 4-week periods required subjects to drink orange juice, a control drink with hesperidin, or a control drink with a placebo.  Researchers found that the diastolic blood pressure of the subjects was lower after a 4-week regimen of orange juice or the drink with hesperidin. Orange juice also showed a significant impact on increasing the microvascular reactivity of subjects when taken with a meal.
