DASH: Dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH) includes foods low in sodium, high in potassium, high in calcium, and high in magnesium. Fruits and vegetables are perfect for this. Not only are the minerals in fruits and vegetables able to control hypertension, but plant-based food will also activate enzymes that repair blood vessels, providing another way to reduce blood pressure.
