A study published in the November issue of the European Journal of Nutrition has found that hemp seeds may not only treat hypertension, it may have the ability to prevent it as well.

“This work determined the ability of hemp seed meal protein hydrolysate (HMH)-containing diets to attenuate elevated blood pressure (hypertension) development in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs)”, states the study’s abstract. “Effects of diets on plasma levels of renin and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) in the SHRs were also determined.”

After conducting the study, researchers concluded; “The results suggest that HMH with strong hypotensive effects in SHRs could be used as a therapeutic agent for both the prevention and treatment of hypertension.”

The study was conducted at the University of Manitoba, and received funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
