Hypertension is a common health problem, and one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Hypertension treatment is usually based on drug administration, yet lifestyle changes and especially diet have also been proven to be almost as effective in hypertension therapy. Dietary components may act favorably in many pathophysiological mechanisms responsible for blood pressure elevation, such as vasoconstriction, arterial stiffness, peripheral resistance, and fluid balance—both acutely and after long-term use. This Special Issue aims to bring together the latest knowledge regarding the nutrition therapy of high blood pressure either through original research or review articles including systematic reviews or meta- analyses, which will offer valuable insight into how diet as a whole, dietary patterns, nutrients, nutraceuticals, or other components of diet can serve as valuable means for blood pressure control in patients or apparently healthy populations.
