How to Lower Your Blood Pressure through DASH

Monday, February 25th

5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

The DASH diet is a lifelong approach to healthy eating that's designed to help treat or prevent high blood pressure. The DASH diet encourages you to reduce the sodium in your diet and eat a variety of foods rich in nutrients that help lower blood pressure, such as potassium, calcium and magnesium.

 

By following the DASH diet, you may be able to reduce your blood pressure by a few points in just two weeks. Over time, your systolic blood pressure could drop by eight to 14 points, which can make a significant difference in your health risks. The DASH diet emphasizes portion size, eating a variety of foods and getting the right amount of nutrients.
