Lowers Blood Pressure

The Daily 5 is considered to possess significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which may aid in the prevention or treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). 

Many of these effects have been ascribed to a molecule called cordycepin, which has a chemical structure similar to that of adenosine. Cordycepin, like adenosine, appears to have the ability to relax blood vessels, hence increasing circulation and reducing blood pressure.
