Because the research was only done on rats, further studies are needed to see how effectively lingonberry juice can lower blood pressure in humans. “These experimental findings need evidence from comparative clinical studies on healthy individuals with slightly elevated blood pressure who, at this point, have been given nutritional and lifestyle guidance instead of drug therapy. Lingonberry juice is no substitute for medication, but it is a good dietary supplement,” says Kivimäki.
This study reminds us of how our diet and lifestyle behaviors affect our health. While it’s always important to seek medical advice when it comes to these issues, it’s good to know that things like lingonberry juice can provide a simple and quick way to promote health and supplement the proper medication.
