New Study Shows Dairy Products May Have Heart Benefits

According to a study published in the January 2009 edition of the British Journal of Nutrition, low fat dairy products may help lower blood pressure for older individuals at high risk for cardiovascular problems.

The study included 2,290 participants aged 55-80. None of them had cardiovascular disease at the beginning of the study but 1,845 had high blood pressure.

The participants were monitored for 12 months and each filled out a food frequency questionnaire so that researchers could establish the amount of dairy they consumed. Blood pressure was measured at the beginning and end of the study.

At the conclusion of the study period, researchers found that participants with the highest intake of low fat dairy products had 4.8 mmHg lower systolic and 1.4 mmHg lower diastolic blood pressure levels than those with the lowest intakes.

According to lead author Estefania Toledo from University of Navarra in Spain, these findings indicate that low fat dairy products may play an important role in controlling blood pressure levels among older individuals at high risk for cardiovascular complications.

In addition to blood pressure benefits, dairy products have also been associated with strengthening your bones, aiding in weight loss and decreasing the risk of certain cancers.
