Those who do not drink sugary drinks or drink at least two servings less per day can sustainably lower their blood pressure levels.

(May 26, 2010) Those who do not drink sugary drinks or drink at least two servings less per day can sustainably lower their blood pressure values. A study by scientists at the United States' Louisiana State University in New Orleans has shown that refraining from, or at least reducing, sugary drinks (lemonades, cola, sweetened fruit juice drinks) can lower blood pressure. To this end, the researchers evaluated the study results of 800 subjects. The study participants were between 25 and 79 years old and had elevated blood pressure or high blood pressure.

Those with high blood pressure should avoid sugary drinks. Because high blood pressure can cause complications such as stroke, heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases. A high consumption of sugary drinks can also be directly related to diseases such as diabetes and obesity. The US study has now given decisive indications that sugary drinks increase blood pressure. After the subjects reduced the consumption of sugary drinks, the blood pressure values ​​relativized again. A reduction of just two servings reduced blood pressure values.

"Our results suggest that reducing sugar-sweetened drinks and sugar intake can be an important nutritional strategy to lower blood pressure and reduce other blood pressure-related diseases," said study leader Liwei Chen from Louisiana State University in New Orleans. (sb)
