“Women who eat five or more servings of yogurt a week are less likely to develop high blood pressure, research has found. The study – the largest of its kind, involving data from hundreds of thousands of people, found that the risk of high blood pressure was reduced by a fifth. This was compared to people who ate just one portion of yogurt a month. The effect was most noticeable in women because men eat much less yogurt, the researchers said.

And the benefit of eating yogurt five times a week was even greater in people who also ate lots of fruit, vegetables, nuts and beans. They saw a 31 per cent reduction in risk for high blood pressure, compared to those who ate yogurt just once a month.
