Gazpacho is the 'power soup' for reducing high blood pressure
About the author: 

Gazpacho is the 'power soup' for reducing raised blood pressure (hypertension)

Gazpacho is the 'power soup' for reducing raised blood pressure (hypertension). Its ingredients, such as tomato, cucumber, garlic and olive oil, have all individually been proven to lower blood pressure, but the soup delivers them all in one serving, say researchers.
People who regularly drink the soup lower their risk of developing high blood pressure by 27 per cent, conclude University of Barcelona researchers, who analysed the results of previous studies of 3,995 people and the impact the Mediterranean diet has had on their heart health.
The soup is so rich in carotenes, vitamin C and polyphenols that its benefits outweigh any adverse effects that the salt in the soup might otherwise have.
