Effects of minerals, antioxidants, and micronutrients on blood pressure

Edgar R Miller, Stephen P. Juraschek

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Dietary recommendations for the prevention and treatment of hypertension are based on compelling evidence from clinical trials. Notably, the DASH and OmniHeart trials showed impressive blood pressure (BP) reductions with improved quality of diet [1,2]. These effects were seen in the setting of isocaloric feeding and xed sodium intake. Many constituents of diets may account for the BP-lowering effects, yet minerals and antioxidants contained in diets high in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy seem to be particularly relevant.
