Yogurt Hinders Hypertension

Eating yogurt could reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure, or hypertension, according to new research presented at the American Heart Association 2012 Scientific Sessions. During their 15-year study, researchers followed more than 2,000 volunteers that did not initially have high blood pressure and reported on their yogurt consumption

at three intervals. Participants that routinely consumed at least one sixounce cup of low-fat yogurt every three days were 31 percent less likely to develop hypertension.
