Recently, study findings from the Louisville Metabolic and Atherosclerosis Research Center showed that pre-hypertensive participants who ate raisins three times a day were able to reduce their blood pressure during the 12-week study.

Compared to participants eating other snacks with the same calorie count, participants eating the raisins for a snack were able to lower both systolic (top number) and diastolic (bottom number) pressure readings.

This is really good news for anyone who loves raisins – and who doesn’t love raisins? Note however that participants were replacing processed, wheat-based snacks. So it may actually be healthier to cut down all snacks between meals.
