January 20, 2015

Get the Low Down on High Blood Pressure   

The DASH diet has just "dashed off" with highest honors as US News 2015 Top-Rated Diet.


DASH - "Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension" - is an all star. It gets high marks for nutritional completeness, safety, ability to prevent or control diabetes, and its role in supporting heart health.

And of course, it's proven to control and even prevent high blood pressure. High blood pressure is dangerous and it affects almost one in three Americans.


  • 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, whole grains, unsalted nuts, legumes, 2-3 servings of low-fat and fat-free dairy products, and small servings of meat, fish and poultry
  • High in a mineral mix (potassium, magnesium, calcium) and low in sodium that is associated with blood pressure lowering
  • Get going and keep DASH-ing
