Abstract

A healthy diet plays an important role in both the prevention and treatment of hypertension. Very good results have been obtained with the "Dietary approaches to stop hypertension (Dash)" combination diet. Salt reduction has a favourable effect; simultaneous increases in potassium and magnesium intake could have an additional beneficial effect. The use of low-sodium high-potassium mineral salt could make a useful contribution to prevention and treatment. These dietary measures, combined with weight loss and physical exercise, may prevent drug treatment
