Hypertension - diet

DASH diet

A diet that is effective in lowering blood pressure is called Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH).

Low sodium diet

If you have high blood pressure or heart, liver, or kidney problems, your health care provider may suggest you lower your sodium intake. Look for these words on labels low-sodium, sodium-free, no salt added, or unsalted. Check all labels to see how many milligrams of sodium there are per serving. Be sure to note how many servings there are in the package. Also, avoid foods that list salt near the top of the list of ingredients. Try to choose foods that have 140 milligrams or less of sodium per serving.
