The finding was based on a survey of 184 male and 297 females who consumed unsalted tomato juice for a year. Systolic blood pressure for 94 participants dropped from 141.2 to 137.00 mmHG and diastolic blood pressure from 83.3 to 80.9. LDL cholesterol levels in 125 participants decreased from 155.- to 149.9 mg/dL. These results were applicable for both men and women.
