The DASH Diet – Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension by Erica Oberg, ND, MPH

The DASH Diet – Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension by Erica Oberg, ND, MPH

By: | Tags: , , ,

Medical Author, Erica Oberg, ND, MPH http://www.medicinenet.com/the_dash_diet/article.htm (FOR AN EASIER TO READ VERSION, CLICK THE HEADLINE) ...What is the DASH diet? ...DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, and the diet was developed for a research study in the early 1990s.1 The purpose of the study was to identify a food-based strategy to lower blood pressure. Even though the original research was quite a long time ago, scientists recently conducted a meta-analysis for a DASH diet review to summarize how much blood pressure can be reduced by the DASH diet. The study found, on average, people reduce their blood pressure by 6.7 mmHg systolic and 3.5 mmHg diastolic in just two weeks. The more sodium is restricted, the lower blood pressure goes. ....Or more simply stated, the DASH diet plan includes eating more... fruits and vegetables, low-fat or nonfat dairy, beans, and nuts. ...And eating less... fatty meats, full-fat dairy products, sugar-sweetened beverages, sweets, and sodium (salt). ...Since the original research, scientists also have found that they could apply the DASH diet plan for weight loss.2 When people follow the Dash diet in addition to increasing exercise, they lose weight and improve metabolic measures such as insulin sensitivity. However, in comparison to low-carbohydrate diets, the DASH diet alone was not as effective a strategy for weight loss. When the DASH diet is followed along with exercise and caloric reduction, people improved their blood pressure even more; lowering it by 16 mmHg systolic and 9mmHg diastolic; plus, they lost some weight.2 As people adopt the DASH diet and lower their blood pressure, they may have a reduced need for medication. Discuss the diet-based changes you are making with your health-care professional, and if your blood pressure is at or below goal (<140/80), you can discuss reducing your medications and maintaining your blood pressure with diet alone. ...What is the recommended daily allowance of sodium? ...The National Institutes of Health's 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend consuming less than 2,300 mg of salt each day as part of a healthy diet. ...How does the DASH diet lower blood pressure and promote weight loss? ...The DASH diet is rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium, and fiber; and has a low content of sodium (salt) and saturated fat. Adding more of these nutrients improve the electrolyte balance in the body, allowing it to excrete excess fluid that contributes to high blood pressure. These nutrients also promote relaxation of the blood vessels, reducing blood pressure. These nutrients are often deficient in overweight and obese people, so the DASH diet can help correct those deficiencies and help people feel better. By itself, some people may lose weight with the DASH diet, but most will need to add exercise or further reduce carbohydrates to see big weight losses. The good news for people with diabetes, prediabetes, or insulin resistance is that the DASH diet does improve insulin sensitivity. ...The DASH diet guidelines from the original research study specified two levels of sodium reduction.... The DASH diet phase…
