Hypertension – If you could permanently stop Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), what would you sacrifice to achieve it? Most people will sacrifice the drugs they are taking; what about you?
In research studies, people who were on a DASH diet lowered their blood pressure within 2 weeks. So what is the DASH diet?
DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. The diet is simple:
* Eat more fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods
* Cut back on foods that are high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and trans fats
* Eat more whole-grain foods, fish, poultry, and nuts
* Limit sodium, sweets, sugary drinks, and red meats
My take? I personally recommend a Low GI/GL diet, supplemented with high-quality Omega 3. Not only will you see a reduction in Hypertension, your cholesterol will also be at much better levels.
