A small study involving only 10 people found that a milk protein called casein peptide can reduce high blood pressure. Larger studies are being trialed. Drinking milk will not achieve the same effect because large amounts of milk are needed to consume enough of the protein to have an effect. Other studies found that a combination of alginic acid (seaweed extract) with casein peptide reduced blood pressure significantly more than a placebo. No side effects occurred from the treatments.
