Sesame Oil Blend Battles Hypertension

(MedPage Today) Using a blend of sesame and rice bran oils for cooking and dressing foods may help lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients, a clinical trial showed.
Blood pressure dropped an average of 14 mm Hg systolic and 11 mm Hg diastolic with about 2 tablespoons of the oil per day for 8 weeks, Devarajan Sankar, MD, PhD…, and colleagues found.
The effect was additive to that of a calcium channel blocker and came with cholesterol and triglyceride benefits as well, the group reported.
Community: There are many practical things we can do to lower blood pressure.
