The best diet with people with hypertension is low- sodium diet. This includes limiting the intake of salty foods such as canned goods, fermented foods, junk foods. Added to that is a low fat diet. Foods that are low in cholesterol. Some foods that are high in fats are dairy foods, fatty red meats and processed meats.

Hypertension or what we commonly known as "high blood pressure" is a silent disease which commonly does not cause any obvious symptoms. Best diet recommended for those who have Hypertension or HPN is reducing your salt or sodium intake. And they have this DASH diet or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. ( You can check the link on how to do the DASH diet.

along with diet regulation if you are overweight or obese, weight loss is a safe and effective way to lower blood pressure.By changing a few simple dietary habits, including counting calories and watching portion sizes to boost weight loss, you may be able to lower your blood pressure - a proven risk for heart disease.

DASH diet is the most recommended diet for the person who has a hypertension. This diet involves eating foods that are rich in magnesium, potassium, and calcium and you have to keep away from sweets and meats, you can still eat those but it should very less. Instead of meats you should eat more fish and poultry more important keep away from food with lots of cholesterol.

Sodium is the number one enemy to people with high blood pressure. Reducing sodium in the diet is tricky, as it is present in most canned or prepackaged food. The recommended dose of sodium is between 1,500 to 2,300 mg a day, and people with hypertension should aim for the lower end of the spectrum.


There are two nutrients that help control blood pressure when consumed in adequate doses: potassium and calcium. Low intake of either one increases the risk of hypertension and makes it more difficult to control high blood pressure, even when you take medication.

Potassium works by helping balance the body's water, which helps the body to maintain appropriate blood pressure. Foods high in potassium include orange and prune juice, cottage cheese, skim milk, canned sardines, avocados and banana.

Calcium helps regulate blood pressure as well, so it should be consumed daily in appropriate quantities (1,000 mg per day). Foods high in calcium include dairy products, almonds, beans, spinach and broccoli.

Beginning the DASH diet can really help:
>Eating more fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods
>Cutting back on foods that are high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and trans fats
>Eating more whole grain products, fish, poultry, and nuts
>Eating less red meat (especially processed meats) and sweets
>Eating foods that are rich in magnesium, potassium, and calcium.
