Regular consumption of yogurt will help to control blood pressure and keep it within normal limits, said specialists from the Medical School of Boston University.

As their studies showed, women who consumed natural yogurt (5 or more servings per week) had a reduced risk of developing hypertension.

According to experts, the most pronounced effect can be obtained if you consume yogurt as part of the concept of proper nutrition, Express reported. The secret lies in the unique composition of yogurt. It has a lot of protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin D. All of these substances can help regulate blood pressure. Biologically active peptides are formed during fermentation, which in themselves reduce pressure.

Of course, we are talking about natural Greek yogurt, in which there is no sugar and other additives.

Hypertension is a very common and very dangerous disease. If you have high blood pressure, you must not only adhere to a healthy diet and be physically active as much as possible, but you must also consult a doctor and take the prescribed treatment.
