Hypertension is a major health problem worldwide, increasing cardiovascular (CV) risk and mortality.
Together with pharmacological treatments, non-pharmacological approaches, such as nutrient intake modifications, play a very important role in optimizing treatment.
A link has been shown between hypertension and body weight, as well as dietary habits.
The aim of this Special Issue is to improve the acknowledgment of the relationships between some nutrients and hypertension, and, moreover, the effects of different dietary approaches on hypertension regulation from different points of view.
Potential topics may include:
- Weight loss and Hypertension
