The effect of commercial purified soybean saponin on renin activity and blood pressure was investigated. Soybean saponin significantly inhibited human renin in vitro with IC(50)=59.9 µg/ml. Orally administered soybean saponin at 80 mg/kg of body weight per day to spontaneously hypertensive rats for 8 weeks significantly decreased the blood pressure.
