  • DASH is an acronym for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension - the DASH diet is healthy eating that's designed to help treat or prevent high blood pressure (hypertension). The DASH Diet overview is a HealthiNation video on the DASH Diet principles. 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. Because the DASH diet is a healthy way of eating, it offers health benefits besides just lowering blood pressure. The DASH diet is also in line with dietary recommendations that can help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis and cancer.
