For all you whole grain cereal lovers your morning favorite pick is a winner! A new study reveals having a bowl a day of your favorite whole grains can help lower your risk of hypertension.
According to USA Today, the study saw a substantial difference with the patients who ate whole grain cereal regularly.
“We found about a 20% decreased risk of developing hypertension in those who consumed whole grain breakfasts cereals at least seven times a week,” said lead researcher Dr. Jinesh Kochar, of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and the VA Boston Healthcare System.
“Along with other healthy lifestyles, such as low sodium intake and physical activity, getting whole grain from this readily available source can cut down the risk of developing chronic hypertension,” he added.
