DASH simply refers to an eating and lifestyle plan endorsed by leading health professionals along with the American Heart Association. Following a DASH-like diet has been found to help lower blood pressure as well as reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke. DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (which is just a fancy medical name for high blood pressure). So, DASHing can even help lower cholesterol and improve insulin sensitivity, thus reducing the risk of diabetes as well as help with weight management and prevention of cancers.
