The DASH Diet

Pennington Biomedical was a key contributor to the DASH studies, leading to the creation of this eating plan, a guide to lowering blood pressure and promoting better health.

In 2015, U.S. News and World Report selected DASH as the #1 best overall diet in America for the fifth year in a row.

The research that supported the development of DASH was sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and conducted during the 1990s at four medical centers: Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Duke Hypertension Center and the Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, and the coordinating center, Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research. 

The Pennington Biomedical Research Center is proud to provide you with a complimentary electronic copy of the DASH Eating Plan:
