    Yes, tamarind can reduce blood pressure.

    Most parts of the tamarind tree are medicinal and offer various health benefits to us. The seeds, fruit pulp, leaves, flowers, bark all have medicinal uses.

    The dietary fiber helps in lowering cholesterol by binding the bile salts and preventing their absorption. It is helpful in preventing constipation, binding toxins in the digestive tract and thereby reducing risk of colon cancer.

    I can find nothing about tamarind reducing high blood pressure. Some studies were done showing that tamarind is helpful in reducing fluorides from the body, and may be helpful in lowering cholesterol (however there are no human trials for this), but nothing about blood pressure. As with most foods, their health benefits rarely extend past their own caloric and mineral value.

    tamarind have shown it to be effective in reducing blood pressure and blood cholesterol. The fiber content in tamarind certainly has something to do with the reduction in cholesterol, since it is known to scrap excess LDL cholesterol from the veins and arteries.
