Milk-Derived Peptide Supplements Reduce Blood Pressure In Dutch Study

November 8, 2010: 08:26 AM EST

Dutch scientists studying the potential health benefits of consuming supplemental milk-derived peptides found that they significantly – and safely –lowered blood pressure in subjects with stage 1 hypertension.  The randomized and placebo-controlled clinical trial involved 70 participants who were either prehypertensive or in stage 1 hypertension. Each was given two capsules containing various combinations of peptides such as isoleucine, proline, methionine, leucine and alanine, or a placebo. The researchers found that a combination of the peptides isoleucine and proline lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in stage 1 hypertensive subjects, but had no impact on prehypertensive subjects. They concluded that their findings suggest that milk-derived peptides “may be included in lifestyle changes aiming to prevent or reduce high blood pressure.”
