Chicken soup helps to lower blood pressure, scientists have found. So does eating less salt and salty food.

Chicken soup lowers blood pressure
Article in the Telegraph


"The soup, sometimes dubbed Grandma's penicillin, has been used as a folk remedy to cure all ills.

But researchers have discovered that the chicken leg meat used to make the soup contains a chemical known as an ACE inhibitor, which lowers blood pressure.

These inhibitors reduce tension in muscles which in turn reduce the tension on blood vessels and the blood that runs through them.

Ai Saiga, a scientist at Hiroshima University, carried out tests on rats and found proteins produced a significant and prolonged decrease in blood pressure."

"High blood pressure is thought to be the main factor of cardiovascular disease and stroke. It is reported that there are more than one billion people in the world with the condition."

The best and most effective drug-free way to reduce high blood pressure is to avoid salt and salty food.

Lose weight, reduce fluid retention, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
