MMJ STUDY Hemp Seeds and Hypertension


New research suggests adding hemp seeds to one’s diet may help in both preventing and treating high blood pressure.

 

Researchers at the University of Manitoba believe hemp seeds could offer a safer alternative to drugs traditionally prescribed for hypertension. Previous studies, they note, suggest that proteins found in hemp seed possess a variety of cardiovascular benefits.

 

In a new study, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, the team found that an 8-week diet of hydrolyzed hemp protein could slow the development of hypertension in genetically-prone rats.  

 

What’s more, the diet was also effective at reducing signs of hypertension – plasma ACE and renin levels – in rats with already established conditions. 

 

While a number of foods have been found to help control blood pressure, the researchers suggest that the protein content of hemp seeds, as well as being easy to digest, make it an ideal choice.
