Blood Pressure Home > Diet for Reducing High Blood Pressure

People with high blood pressure (hypertension) may be familiar with the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension). This diet involves eating more fish, whole grains, and poultry, while reducing your intake of sweets, red meats, and fats.
 
Studies have shown that following this diet can decrease the risk of developing high blood pressure and lower an already elevated blood pressure. In fact, two recent research studies have shown that by following a specific diet, blood pressure can be reduced by an amount similar to that seen with medication.
