DASH Diet Linked to Better Heart Health in Women

May 11, 2009: 06:04 AM EST
The DASH diet might also reduce the risk of heart failure in women, says a new study. Researchers in Boston studied data on women for seven years, finding a definite link between reduced heart failure and the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet. Previous research has found that the diet reduces systolic blood pressure. The diet specifies a high intake of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products and whole grains, resulting in high potassium, magnesium, and calcium and fiber consumption.
