Key to beating high BP - Lentils

Tuesday, 31 December 2013 - 11:36am IST | Agency: ANI

A new study has found that adding lentils to your daily diet can help reduce high blood pressure.

The study, led by Dr Peter Zahradka from the University of Manitoba, also suggested that consuming pulses like beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas can reverse the changes that happen in blood vessels due to high BP, the Daily Express reported.

Zahradka said that the results of the study are amazing, since they provide a non-pharmacological way of treating diseases associated with blood vessel dysfunction.

Zahradka added that the most notable finding of the study was the fact that lentils could alter the physical properties of blood vessels so that they resembled the vessels found in healthy animals.
