Wild watermelon juice might alleviate the symptoms of hypertension in rats

Hypertensive rats were given either water or wild watermelon juice, and their blood pressure was measured 4 and 8 hours later. The blood pressure of rats that were given wild watermelon juice decreased significantly, suggesting that wild watermelon juice might be effective in treating hypertension.
What is hypertension?

Hypertension is a condition in which blood pressure at rest is consistently higher than normal. Such a condition tends to strain blood vessels which, in the long run, might sustain damage to their internal wall or become less flexible and even stiffened. Prolonged hypertension contributes to the development of arteriosclerosis and can lead to serious conditions such as stroke, heart disease, and chronic kidney disease.
