Intake of Dietary Fiber From Grains and the Risk of Hypertension in Late Midlife Women: Results From the SWAN Study

Daily dietary ingestion of fiber from grains may protect middle-aged women from hypertension.

This study examined whether an association exists between the intake of fiber from grains and the onset of hypertension in middle-aged women. With the aid of dietary questionnaires, researchers collected and collated data on the food choices of 2,519 women with an average age of 46 years. The blood pressures of all the participants were measured regularly throughout the duration of the study. 

Researchers observed that daily consumption of fiber from grains lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in middle-aged women. The findings of this study revealed that adopting the habit of eating grains daily may increase a middle-aged woman's chances of staying free from hypertension.
