In the study of "Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides: production and implementation of functional food" by De Leo F, Panarese S, Gallerani R, Ceci LR., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that
ACE inhibitors of chemical synthesis (captopril, enalapril, ramipril and trandolapril) have been widely used clinically to reduce mortality in patients with heart failure, and in patients with recent myocardial infarction and heart failure or marked left ventricular dysfunction. In addition to preventive and therapeutic drugs, increased attention has been paid to identifying dietary compounds that may contribute to cardiovascular treatment and prevention. ACE inhibitory peptides, derived from a multitude of plant and animal proteins such as milk, soy or fish, represent sources of health-enhancing components.
