For the study, a team of researchers recruited 184 men and 297 women, all of whom were residents of Kuriyama, Japan. All participants could drink as much unsalted tomato juice as they wanted for one year. On average, one person drank approximately 215 ml a day.

The researchers analyzed data from the 94 participants with hypertension or prehypertension (a condition when elevated blood pressure is not high enough to receive a diagnosis of hypertension).

The blood pressure measurements after one year of drinking tomato juice of these participants showed that their blood pressure was significantly lower. Average systolic blood pressure lowered from 141.2 to 137.0 mm Hg while average diastolic blood pressure lowered from 83.3 to 80.0 mm.

Also, the researchers saw a significant drop in the level of low-density lipoprotein also known as “bad” cholesterol which is another risk factor for atherosclerosis.
