Scientists have discovered that tomato juice helps reduce high blood pressure.
The Journal of Food Science and Nutrition indicates that, according to researchers from the Tokyo University of Medicine and Dentistry and the Tucson Institute for the improvement of plant species, the results of the study they conducted with the participation of 481 volunteers showed that salt-free tomato juice helps reduce blood pressure.
And it appeared that after 12 months, blood pressure indicators improved significantly in the participants who drank tomato juice regularly. The researchers also noted an improvement in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as cholesterol.
The researchers point out that the effect of tomato juice is due to its high content of potassium, which helps remove fluids from the body. Therefore, eating an insufficient amount of potassium-rich foods causes the remaining fluids in the body to press on the walls of blood vessels, which leads to an increase in blood pressure levels.
Scientists suggest an effective way to lower the level of blood pressure, which is to reduce the consumption of salt and alcoholic beverages, as well as getting rid of excess weight.
