Hypertension is a cardiovascular disease that accompanied by oxidative stress. Treatment of hypertension with conventional drugs such as captopril could be expected to cope  oxidative stress, but often cause side effects such as cough. It is necessary to find an alternative medicine instead of captopril, which has  antihypertensive and antioxidant activities. Purple sweet potato tubers  has been studied as an antioxidant in vivo , and has shown to decrease blood pressure in hypertensive rats… 

Antioxidant potential and hypolipidemic effects of combined purple sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.) tuber extract with honey in rats given high cholesterol feed

The combination of water extract of purple sweet potato tuber with honey can maintain lipid profile and MDA in the normal range, in rats with high cholesterol feed, in conclusion.

Antioxidant and Hypolipidemic Effects of Ipomoea batatas L and Pandanus conoideus Lam Combination on Rats Fed with High Cholesterol Diet

Administration of PC and IB combination is an effective hypolipidemic agent that has superior antioxidant activity compared to the single-agent (PC or IB) and control.

Sweet potato as an alternative to potato in gestational diabetes mellitus

It is suggested that sweet potato ( Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam) could be eaten instead of potato to lower the risk of gestational diabetes.

Therapeutic Effects of Ipomoea batatas L. Extract-Containing Capsule and Simvastatin Combination versus Simvastatin in Dyslipidemic Patients

It can be inferred that combination of PSPE and simvastatin exhibits a clinically better effect as antidyslipidemic agent and antioxidant in dyslipidemia patients than simvastsatin alone.



Antihypertensive effect and eNOS expressions in nacl- induced hypertensive rats treated with purple sweet potato

The results suggested that the administration of aqueous or ethanolic extract of purple sweet potato tuber may lower blood pressure and increase the expression of eNOS in rats with NaCl-induced hypertension.

Studies on antioxidant capacity of anthocyanin extract from purple sweet potato ( Ipomoea batatas L.)

The radical scavenging effects by α,α-diphenyl-β-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and superoxide anions of anthocyanin extract from purple sweet potato were investigated. The antioxidation experiments showed

Antihypertensive Properties of Plant-Based Prebiotics

Some of the mechanisms involved, the evidence generated from both in-vitro experiments and in- vivo trials and some controversial findings that are raised are discussed.

Effects of dietary administration of plant-derived anthocyanin-rich colors to spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Results suggest that plant-derived colors containing anthocyanins have anti-hypertensive effects on hypertensive animals.

Effects of Captopril on the Renin Angiotensin System, Oxidative Stress, and Endothelin in Normal and Hypertensive Rats

In spontaneously hypertensive rats, angiotensin II is a primary instigator of hypertension, and that captopril selectively lowers angiotENSin II, oxidant stress, and endothelin, which in turn may contribute to the blood pressure-lowering efficacy ofcaptopril in spontaneously hypertintensive rats.

Flavonoid-Rich Dark Chocolate Improves Endothelial Function and Increases Plasma Epicatechin Concentrations in Healthy Adults

Flavonoid-rich dark chocolate improves endothelium-dependent flow-mediated dilation of the brachial artery and is associated with an increase in plasma epicatechin concentrations in healthy adults.

The effects of plant flavonoids on mammalian cells: implications for inflammation, heart disease, and cancer.

Western medicine has not yet used flavonoids therapeutically, even though their safety record is exceptional, and suggestions are made where such possibilities may be worth pursuing.

Habitual intake of flavonoid subclasses and incident hypertension in adults.

Anthocyanins and some flavone and flavan-3-ol compounds may contribute to the prevention of hypertension and may result from specific structural similarities (including the B-ring hydroxylation and methyoxylation pattern).
