Low Fat Dairy May Lower Blood Pressure

New research shows that increased consumption of low-fat dairy products may reduce the risk of hypertension in middle aged and older women.

Scientists from the Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Harvard School of Public Health studied 28,886 US women over the age of 45 for 10 years.

Results showed that the women who consumed more than 2 servings of low-fat dairy products per day were 11% less likely to develop hypertension than those who consumed little or none.

By contrast, no decrease was observed with increased consumption of high-fat dairy products.

The study was published in the February 2008 edition of Hypertension the journal of the American Heart Association.

So next time your are craving a snack, choose a cup of low fat yogurt, cottage cheese or a glass of skim milk.
