A study on the effect of plantains on Desoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-induced hypertension in rats indicates that chronic consumption of plantain diet is capable of lowering the DOCA-induced elevated mean arterial pressure in rats.
According to the study published in Pharmaceutical Biology by E. E. Osim of the Department of Physiology College of Medical Sciences, University of Calabar; and J. O Ibu of the Department of Physiology, College of Medical Sciences, University of Port Harcourt, plantain diet can also prevent the onset of DOCA-induced hypertension in rats.
They wrote: “DOCA administration to rats placed on normal rat feed elevated the mean arterial blood pressure.

DOCA administration to rats previously placed on plantain diet produced no significant change in the mean arterial blood pressure when compared with control.”
