Whey Protein Can Help Reduce Elevated Blood Pressure

December 8, 2010: 07:22 AM EST

A Washington State University study finds that elevated levels of systolic and diastolic blood pressure can be reduced by an average of around 6 points through daily doses of whey-based protein added to beverages such as fruit flavored drinks. And though test subjects in this limited sample were 18-26 years old, people outside that age group with elevated blood pressure should experience similar results, which should lead to a reduction in heart disease and fatal strokes. The report also indicates that people with normal or low blood pressure do not experience further reduction by taking whey. The researchers expect that their findings will create a new market for whey, a cheese byproduct that is costly to dairy producers because they often have to throw it out.
