Intake of lentils regularly and daily may have a profound and therapeutic effect in reduced risk and treatment of high blood pressure, some scientists postulated
Lentil, a type of pulse and tiny legumes that can be cooked quickly and rich in protein and fiber is a bushy annual plant of genus Lens belongings to the Fabaceaefamily, native to Middle East.
Hypertension is a chronic medical condition characterized by abnormal high blood pressure.
The study to evaluate the lentil intake activity and risk of hypertension in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) model by feeding semi-purified diet prepared with powder (30 %, w/w) from cooked whole pulses or a pulse-free control diet (n = 8/group) for 4 weeks showed that urine samples collected from rats fed with lentil pulse group reveal 27 different metabolites in compared only 7 in control diet rat group.
According to the differentiate assays, metabolites citrulline found in pulse group exerted a significant effect in blood pressure regulation via production of the vasodilator nitric oxide (NO) whose bioavailability, is an important risk factor for reduced hypertension through arterial dilation by relaxings narrowed blood vessels and increasing oxygen and blood flow.
