Too much salt will kill you!

by , 02 June 2014

Your daily recommended allowance is just one teaspoon, or around 2,300mg. And if you think that's a lot to get through, and you're sure you don't, think again!

Millions of people suffer from elevated blood pressure and heart problems!

The reason? It's all the salt they eat…

It's not only about adding a sprinkling of salt to your food before you taste it, it's the food you eat that sneakily contains a huge amount of salt…

Here are four foods that contain heaps of salt and are the likely culprits behind your elevated blood pressure.

Foods that lower your blood pressure like drugs
Did you know that a simple, natural way to lower your blood pressure is to eat more celery, garlic and onions?
That drinking green tea exerts a blood pressure-lowering affect that could have you feeling better 30 minutes later.
And, adding cayenne pepper to your food – a powerful vasodilator – helps expand your blood vessels and improves your blood flow thus naturally lowering your blood pressure.

Think your lunch is healthy and low in salt? Watch this!

#1. Salad dressing and sauces: Ever checked how much salt is in your favourite dressing or sauce? It’s a considerable amount if you think about how much of these you use on your meal. Just a small teaspoon of hot sauce, tomato sauce or salad dressing can contain as much 400mg of salt.
#2. Processed meat: Is your easiest lunch a sandwich with cold meat? Watch out, two slices of smoked ham, salami or turkey contain as much as 1,400mg salt!
#3. Cheese: Add cheese to that delicious sandwich and your salt intake goes up again. A small 30g portion of Gouda contains around 250mg salt.
#4. Nuts: While snacking on nuts is great for your health, eating too many salted nuts can cause you to suffer from elevated blood pressure. In your average serving of salted peanuts, you’ll get as much as 700mg salt!
Now let’s add these up… Your salt intake is at a whopping 2,750mg! And that’s just lunch, not taking into account anything else you eat during the day…
So think carefully about your salt intake and you’ll soon see why you have elevated blood pressure…
High blood pressure increases the risk of a heart attack as much as five times!
Controlling your high blood pressure is the best way to protect yourself from the possible consequences of these life-threatening conditions.
So start cutting back on your salt intake TODAY!
