Hypertension-Lowering Diet Linked To Lower Depression Levels


Hypertension-Lowering Diet Linked To Lower Depression Levels    




Diet Helps The Gut Microorganisms, Which In Turn, Produce Hormones That Combat Depression    




The DASH diet is based on fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat dairy foods, and has been designed to fight high blood pressure. However, researchers have found out that it also helps to combat depression. Studies have proved that there is a link between our gut microbiota, the microorganisms in the intestine that help digest the food, and the mood. These microorganisms have an active role in the production of hormones that regulate our moods, such as serotonin and dopamine. To prove the link between a healthy diet and depression, researchers, evaluated the dietary habits of a group of people and compared it to the DASH diet, and to their mood. However, the most interesting finding was the effect of a healthy diet combined with antidepressant drugs. Click here for more info.

Smartphones Will Also Be Used To Control Blood Pressure


Smartphones Will Also Be Used To Control Blood Pressure    




This Will Allow Patients To Check Their Pressure More Often And Lower The Risk Of Cardiovascular Conditions    




Researchers have incorporated a blood pressure monitor into a smartphone. This will allow patients to control blood pressure more frequently, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. It uses changes in blood volume through photoplethysmography (PPG), in which a force transducer will apply pressure. This will help rural areas and developing countries, in which phones are common, but there is little access to medical professionals and medical equipment. Additional information click here.

Sleep Apnea And Poor Sleeping Can Lead To Hypertension    




Sleep apnea has been related to high blood pressure. However, recent research suggests that sleeping less than six hours also increases the risk of hypertension, with, or without sleep apnea.
