How does the DASH diet work?

By limiting foods that are high in sugar, sodium and cholesterol, the DASH diet aims to keep blood pressure in check.

Studies have shown that the DASH diet helps lower the blood pressure of those that follow it, but it has other potential health benefits too.

People who limited their sodium (salt) intake more, while on the DASH diet, saw their blood pressure reduce even further.

The DASH diet can also help people to manage hypertension as people tend to lose weight while following this diet. Being overweight causes higher blood pressure.

The DASH diet has also been linked to reducing the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
