Foods with whole grain additives help lower blood pressure. This news came from Harvard University where a research on this subject has been completed recently. The work was carried out at the Social Health Chair headed by Doctor Alan Flint.
More than thirty thousand men were involved in the research. Their health rates have been carefully supervised for eighteen years. Those who paid due tribute to whole grain foods were found to suffer from hypertension less by almost 20%.
The scientists explain that this is due to the fact that whole grain foods lower the blood sugar level which stabilizes blood-pressure, brings down excess weight and improves the function of the cardiovascular system. Besides, whole grain bread, for example, contains much more healthy antioxidants and nutrients than common bread. Therefore people who include more grain and bran particles food in their diet are far less likely to develop diabetes, adiposis, various forms of cancer and hypertension. Dr Flint said that this discovery will help work out more effective medical diets.
