Two Glasses of Milk a Day Lowers BP

By    |   Thursday, 09 Jul 2015 04:50 PM

Here’s good news for dairy lovers: Dutch researchers have determined drinking two glasses of milk each day may lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of developing heart disease.

The findings, presented at a European medical conference in France in September, are based on an analysis of nine studies involving more than 57,000 individuals — and 15,367 cases of hypertension.

Lead researcher Sabita S. Soedamah-Muthu, M.D., from Wageningen University in the Netherlands, said the analysis found drinking about two cups of milk per day reduced the risk for high blood pressure and that more may be better.

The findings echo research by Daniel R. Machin, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in May, which showed the addition of four servings of nonfat dairy per day to a routine diet lowered blood pressure in middle-aged and older adults.

Other studies presented at the conference also suggested that adding milk fat to infant formula can benefit brain development.
