Nicholls said. “We also saw a bit of a trend toward regression in atherosclerosis. But our primary endpoint — a decrease in the volume of disease in the artery — did not meet statistical significance.” Although not a primary endpoint, the researchers did identify a decrease in major cardiovascular events including sudden death, stroke, and heart attack in patients on aliskiren. The data indicate that patients with heart disease and blood pressure in the prehypertensive range may benefit from more aggressive treatment of their blood pressure to get it lower than current guidelines suggest. “We have to be cautious interpreting our results on cardiovascular events because this trial was not formally designed to look at these outcomes,” said Steven Nissen, M.D., Chairman of the AQUARIUS trial executive committee and Chairman of the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.

A 2010 review of studies in the journal BMC Medicine showed that flavanols, which are found in chocolate, seemed to promote the dilation of blood vessels, which in turn can lower blood pressure. “Flavanols have been shown to increase the formation of endothelial nitric oxide, which promotes vasodilation and consequently may lower blood pressure,” study researcher Dr. Karin Ried, of the University of Adelaide in Austria, said in a statement. “There have, however, been conflicting results as to the real-life effects of eating chocolate.

After you do it for a while, it appears to slow down your rate even when you arent hooked up to the machine. If you dont want to spring for the machine, a University of Missouri School of Medicine study found that practicing yoga pranayama breathing 15 minutes daily resulted in statistically significant blood pressure reduction of 11 points (systolic) and 8 points (diastolic) in pre-hypertensive subjects after six weeks.
