Chicken legs may control high blood pressure.

Scientists in Japan have identified four proteins in chicken legs which appear to be effective in controlling high blood pressure. A paper published in the Journal of Agricultural Chemistry and Food, said researchers had extracted collagen from chicken legs and then fed it to hypertensive rats. The rats which were fed collagen had distinctly lower blood pressure levels for up to eight hours afterwards.
