Washington: Here is another reason why you should include eggs in your diet! Egg white protein can lower your blood pressure as effectively as low doses of medication, according to a new study."We have evidence from the laboratory that a substance in egg white - it`s a peptide, one of the building blocks of proteins - reduces blood pressure about as much as a low dose of Captopril, a high-blood-pressure drug," said study leader Zhipeng Yu, of Jilin University. Yu and colleagues from Clemson University studied a peptide called RVPSL. Scientists previously discovered that the substance, like the family of medications that includes Captopril, Vasotec and Monopril, was an angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It has a powerful ability to inhibit or block the action of ACE, a substance produced in the body that raises blood pressure. They set out to further document RVPSL`s effects, using laboratory rats that develop high blood pressure and are stand-ins for humans in such early research on hypertension.
