Continued from page 1

Inrepparttar study covered byrepparttar 149023 Annals, a group of American and Chinese researchers focused on 300 Chinese patients suffering from hypertension. One group was and given 40gms of soy protein whilerepparttar 149024 second group was given wheat-based carbohydrates.

The objective ofrepparttar 149025 trial was to examinerepparttar 149026 effect of soybean protein supplementation on blood pressure in persons with pre-hypertension or Stage 1 hypertension. The results showed that Soybean protein supplementation resulted in a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. As such, increased intake of soybean protein may play an important role in preventing and treating hypertension.

The researchers of Tulane University, New Orleans say it's unclear how soybean products might reduce blood pressure. One theory is that soy proteins widen blood vessels while helpingrepparttar 149027 body do a better job of processing blood sugar.

In a related editorial, Dr. Jeffrey A. Cutler and Dr. Eva Obarzanek ofrepparttar 149028 National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, state thatrepparttar 149029 new study provides "another important link between blood pressure and dietary macronutrient intake," but add that further studies are needed before soybean supplements can be recommended to patients with high blood pressure.

Soybeans, soymilk, tofu, bean sprouts, meat substitutes, cookies and even soy-based ice cream are all commonly available. Maybe it is better that you don’t wait forrepparttar 149030 big medical institutions to start singing praises about soybeans. If you want an edge, perhaps now isrepparttar 149031 time to start making some changes to your diet. Throw in 40 minutes exercise four times a week and your high blood pressure will really take a dive.
