Studies: Soy, rasins lower blood pressure
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Raisins and soy help fight high blood pressure, according to two new studies.
Munching on a handful of raisins three times a day helped people significantly lower their blood pressure as did consuming soy on a daily basis.
People who ate raisins saw the top number of their blood pressure drop by 7 percent. Those who had soy lowered their blood pressure by about 5 points.
The effect was especially strong among African Americans.
