An important aspect of longevity is to keep blood pressure within a healthy range. Blood pressure tends to increase naturally as we age as arteries and veins become less elastic and supple. The DASH diet can help support maintaining BP in a healthy range (and not surprisingly other health markers).

What is the DASH Diet?

The Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet is a dietary pattern recommended to improve cardiovascular health and manage hypertension (high blood pressure). The diet emphasizes the intake of minimally-processed, blood pressure-lowering foods and nutrients, and limits the intake of foods and nutrients that may contribute to hypertension. 

Health benefits of the DASH diet 

  • Improves blood pressure, blood sugar, blood lipid, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels;
  • Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), stroke, and CVD-related mortality;
  • May benefit individuals with hyperlipidemia, overweight/obesity, and insulin resistance;
  • Reduces the risk of kidney disease, gout, colorectal cancer, and all-cause mortality;

The Bottom Line
As another "diet" the DASH diet provides everyone with guidelines to eat well. It's not just beneficial for those who suffer from hypertension and will add years of health and wellness to your life no matter what!
