Meat is a good source of effective peptides in preventing and reducing chronic life- style related disease (CLSRDs) such as hypertension. Lack in crucial nutrients consumption such as protein of plant or animal origin along with abnormalities in carbohydrate and fat metabolism may underlie the aetiology of the clinical course of hypertension. Functional food derived from meat rich in those nutrients may utilize physiological function of peptides as well as improve digestion and metabolism carbohydrate and fats, thus lowering blood pressure and normalize associated biochemical and histopathological changes in man body. Edible meat comes in top of the most valuable animal products that the proteolytic action of meat muscle tremendously generates a profound number of multi-amino acid peptides, some of them with a strong relevant antihypertensive
