Pea Protein Helps Fight Blood Pressure And Kidney Disease

Studies reveal that proteins found in common garden pea may provide a natural cure against high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The pea protein could be used as a natural food product such as an additive or dietary supplement to help large number of people worldwide that suffer from these conditions. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a major risk factor for people with chronic kidney disease. Estimates suggest that the number of people with CKD is on the rise in the US and other countries. CKD is difficult to treat, and many patients progress to end stage kidney disease and have to have dialysis or a kidney transplant. Researchers are constantly finding new ways to treat CKD and stop kidneys from deteriorating.
