The dairy isn't suitable for everyone, but if you can tolerate it, you should know that a study of over 2,500 people – with normal blood pressure monitored for 14.6 years – showed that those who ate three or more portions of milk a day or week compared to less than a portion, had a slower increase in blood pressure. In other words, dairy consumption has delayed hypertension, but has not completely prevented it.
A meta-analysis also showed that low-fat dairy products reduced the risk of hypertension while cheese, yogurt, fermented milk or whole milk had no effect. A subsequent systematic review was accepted, but the authors concluded that it is not clear whether low-fat dairy products were more useful than normal dairy products when it comes to blood pressure.
If you can tolerate dairy products, enjoy them daily or weekly can help reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure. If you can't tolerate it due to food sensitivities, allergies, digestive discomforts or autoimmune problems, don't stress yourself. You can get benefits from other foods on this list.
