DASH Diet :: NutriGenie DASH Diet for Windows
The DASH diet is based on findings from the “Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension” a National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-supported study that found that elevated blood pressure levels can be reduced with an eating plan low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, and rich in fruits, vegetables, and lowfat dairy products.
Magnesium, potassium, calcium as well as protein and fiber are important components of the DASH diet.
The DASH diet eating pattern has been shown to substantially lower blood pressure without weight loss or reduced sodium intake. More recently, another landmark study, DASH-Sodium, has shown that a combination of the DASH diet and sodium reduction can lower blood pressure even more. This combination benefits those with and without high blood pressure.
