There are persistent rumors in Indonesia, including Aceh people that the consumption of goat milk can effect to increases blood pressure (BP) and cause of hypertension, but there is no scientific evidence to support this. This research was conducted to analysis the effect of dietary goat milk on blood pressure and it's relation with serum calcium in sedentary women. This research were randomized clinical trial with randomized double blind design, using 18 sedentary women aged 18-19 years. The treatment was goat's milk 250 ml/day, given at 8:00 to 09:00 pm, for 110 days. The result showed that systolic (101.11 ñ 3.09 and 93.33 ñ 1.66 vs 112.22 ñ 3.23 and 110 ñ 2.88 mmHg) and diastolic blood pressure (70 ñ 2.35 and 67.78 ñ 3.32 and 75.56 ñ 1.75 and 80 ñ 2.34 mmHg) in the trial group decreased significantly (p<0.05) compared to the control group, after treatment. There were significant (p<0,05) differences of serum calcium in treatment between control group (8.9ñ0,05; 9.3ñ0,09 vs 9.08ñ0.06; 9.56ñ0,14 mg/dl) and significant (P<0.05) correlation was found between serum calcium and systolic (r=0.68, t=-0.38, p=0.04 mmHg) and diastolic blood pressure (r=0.76, t=-2,24, p=0.01) after treatment. It can be concluded that goat's milk lowers blood pressure and prevent hypertension in sedentary women.
