Can you believe your diet can control the risk of heart failures and reduces the high blood pressure level?  Yes, the American Journal of Preventive Medicine comes to some surprising conclusions after the study of 4,500 people in 13 years.

The individuals under 75 who adhere to the Dash diet have a significantly lower risk of hypertension and heart failures. The dietary approach leads to stop hypertension among people under the age of 75 years. However, the one who least likely to keep to the tenents of the diet attract these health issues more.

Claudia Campos, associate professor at Wake Forest said Dash Diet on the incidence of heart failure has yielded conflicting results.  “Dash Diet reduces the rate of heart failure by almost half.”

Here are the things you must opt and cut out of your diet to reduce hypertension and risk of heart failure

You must follow the dash diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts,  poultry, fish, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, etc.  however, while opting for the dash diet one must reduce the intake of three components: salt, red meat, sweets, and sugar-sweetened beverages. It includes cutting out of two more food items: full cream dairy products and alcoholic beverages.

Slow eating leads to less likely to develop metabolic syndrome. People who less likely to develop this syndrome are more away from heart failure, diabetes, and stroke factors. It makes the person more prone to eating healthy and drinking rather than overeating.

The excess sodium level in your diet also increases the risk of hypertension, heart disease, and stroke.  Center for disease control and prevention revealed Heart disease and stroke are the main reason for the death of Americans. Together it both kills more Americans than any other cause.

Artificial sweeteners also increase the risk of heart stroke rate and dementia. According to a 2015 study, consumption of soda increases the rate to suffer cardiovascular events in older women.  Consumption of soda on a regular basis increases obesity and ultimately the risk of heart failure and hypertension.
