Yogurt May Help Improve Blood Pressure

Yogurt contains calcium, vitamins B6 and B12, riboflavin, potassium, and magnesium which are important for maintaining bone health. Now a new study has found that yogurt may also help improve blood pressure.

Participants included 915 adults who took part in the Maine–Syracuse Longitudinal Study. They completed food frequency questionnaires that were used to measure yogurt consumption. The researchers measured systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Participants with high blood pressure who consumed yogurt regularly had blood pressure that was 7 points lower than those who did not consume yogurt. Participants with high blood pressure who consumed yogurt occasionally had lower blood pressure readings than those who did not consume yogurt. No association between yogurt and blood pressure was found in participants who did not have high blood pressure.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of South Australia and the University of Maine. It was published in the November 2021 edition of the International Dairy Journal.
