Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH ) is a low-fat eating plan which could be a useful tool in your nutrition education efforts. Research shows that DASH, which includes two to three servings of dairy foods and eight to ten servings of fruits and vegetables every day, may help manage blood pressure. In fact, a trio of minerals found in dairy foods - calcium, potassium and magnesium - may play an important role in maintaining healthy blood pressure.
