Hypertension affects more and more people each year. The research showed that some nutrition plans could lower blood pressure in people experiencing hypertension. One of such meal plans is the DASH diet. The DASH diet, or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, is an eating plan that focuses on controlling and preventing hypertension. The DASH diet is the most effective in lowering blood pressure, reducing levels within two weeks of starting the diet plan. Along with reducing blood pressure, this diet pattern lowers total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels. This diet consists primarily of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. In addition, the DASH diet includes fish, lean meats, poultry, beans, and nuts. Furthermore, it limits foods and beverages with added sugar, added fats, and red meat. DASH diet provides health benefits such as improvement of hypertension, weight loss, and reducing the risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
