The DASH Diet can help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which is good for your heart. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (high blood pressure) but you don't need to have high blood pressure to get the benefits of this healthier way of eating.

Hi,

DASH diet is definitely the right diet to help control hypertension as well as this diet may subserve a purpose to prevent typertension and people with high cholesterol..Ideally it should be ascribed the term Meditarranean diet where we consume a lot of fish and fruits and green leafy vegetables and cut down the rate of consumption af saturated fats and salt.It definitely had an impact on my cholesterol numbers and indirectly control my chances of getting obese,hypertensive and diabetic.
