Eating Dehulled Adlay Every Day Helps Your Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a crucial risk factor for many cardiovascular diseases, and a diet rich in whole-grain foods may modulate blood pressure. This study investigated the effects of dehulled adlay consumption on blood pressure and endothelium functions, and discovered that it could retard blood pressure increases over a 12-week experimental period in hypertensive animals. In an additional human trial, 23 participants with overweight and obese-consumed 60g of dehulled adlay daily for a six-week experimental period, and exhibited a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure (SBP). The change in SBP was even more evident in participants with high baseline SBP. A daily intake of 60g of dehulled adlay is therefore suggested as a replacement over some staple foods as it delivers beneficial effects for blood-pressure management.
