Leafy Green Vegetables Help Lower Blood Pressure


If this year's e-coli outbreak had you avoiding leafy greens like spinach, listen up.

A small study suggests eating your leafy greens could help keep your blood pressure under control.

The study from Sweden included 17 healthy adults who took a daily dose of a nitrate supplement equal to that found in a vegetable.

When taking the supplement their average blood pressure was slightly lower than if they took a placebo.

Researchers say other studies have shown similar results.
