Hypertension is a disease that often occurs during pregnancy. The cause of hypertension or preeclampsia in patofisologis unclear. Many factors influence the occurrence of hypertension, one of which is oxidative stress and diet. Oxidative stress is caused by an imbalance prooxidant and antioxidant. So it takes an antioxidant that can reduce oxidative stress in pregnant women with hypertension. Potassium contained in the cucumber has a working system affect the renin angiotensinogen to angiotensin I to angiotensin II later changed because of a block in the system of blood vessels occurs vasodilation resulting in decreased blood pressure ..
Proving the provision of cucumber and green grass jelly effect on blood pressure in pregnant women with hypertension.
Quasy experiment with pretest and posttest control design. Samples were 45 divided into 3 groups. The first group with the intervention of cucumber 400 grams, the second group with green grass jelly intervention as much as 150 grams and the third group a combination of cucumber and green grass jelly 550 gr, given the intervention for 14 days.
Differences in mean systolic before and after the intervention of cucumbers 9.04 mmHg, 9.3 mmHg green grass jelly, and a combination of cucumber and green grass jelly 10.7 mmHg. Diastolic mean difference before and after the intervention of 6.9 mmHg cucumber, green grass jelly 4.37 mmHg, and a combination of cucumber and green grass jelly 8.6 mmHg. There are significant differences in each group interventions for blood pressure pre and post-systolic with p-value <0.05 and diastolic with p-value <0.05.
Giving the most effective intervention and a significant decrease in blood pressure in pregnant women with mild hypertension is a combination of cucumber and green grass jelly.
