Release Date: 06/28/2019
Looking for ways to lower your risk of heart disease? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Cardiovascular disease is on the rise and is the leading cause of death in the US. A new study published in the journal Food Science & Nutrition found that drinking a cup of tomato juice a day could help. No, they aren’t talking about canned vegetable juice with added sodium. Actual tomato juice was used for this experiment. Tomatoes contain vitamin A, carotenoid, and calcium. All of which are believed to aid in both psychological and physical health. The participants in the study saw a decrease in blood pressure. On average they experienced a systolic decrease of 4 points and diastolic decrease of 3 points. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about your heart health. This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
