Our salt is free from sodium and very less on
potassium. Potassium is also harmfull if taken in excess. Major low sodium salts
available in market contains potassium only. We add many minerals that help to
reduce potassium levels in your body. Useful minerals for body like magnesium,
calcium, iodine and other are present in required percentage. Thus now
salt is no more bad…!
The Benefits of Reducing Sodium Intake
While we want to live healthy, we
really need to start living with less salt or no salt in some food.
Yes, salt adds flavor to food,
but there’s a lot more to it than that. Salt is a combination of about 2 parts
sodium to 3 parts chloride, both of which serve functions vital to our health
and well-being. Sodium, for example, is a major regulator of the fluid balance
in our bodies. But too much sodium can raise blood pressure, a prime risk factor
for stroke, coronary heart disease, and kidney disease. This is especially a
problem for people with diabetes. People who are sitting in office for the while
day also must cut down sodium intake.
The good news is that as sodium
intake decreases, so does blood pressure. In addition, the taste for salt is an
acquired one, meaning that when you cut down on salt, within just a couple of
weeks you just won’t want as much of it.
The minimum amount of sodium
required to replace the body’s normal losses is estimated to be about 180 mg a
day. And yet adults consume an average of 3,400+ mg of sodium daily. It is
recommended to take 1,500 mg of sodium per day for the general population.
We generally get most of sodium
from bread, chicken and beef dishes, pizza and pasta, condiments, Mexican food,
cheese, grain-based desserts, soups, cold cuts, sausage, hot dogs, bacon, and
ribs. Even packaged food is always high in sodium. These foods contribute about
56 percent of the sodium in the average diet, or nearly 2,000 mg a day.
Finally, give yourself time to
adjust to the taste of foods with no salt. Your health is definitely worth it!
The Benefits of Reducing Potassium Intake
Potassium, though an essential
nutrient for the body, can be really dangerous if ingested in large quantities.
A high amount of potassium in the blood is called Hyperkalemia. A healthy body
is usually able to maintain normal levels of potassium and therefore even a
minimal rise in potassium in the blood is a cause for serious concern.
Generally, if you do have
potassium poisoning, the symptoms cannot be detected very early on. It is only
after the renal functions get impaired that you even fid out that the potassium
levels in the body have gone high.
High blood potassium is a serious problem and medical help should be sought
immediately. There are certain things that you can do at home to lower the
potassium levels, but it is no substitute to medical help.
Calcium, for one, counters
potassium and interferes in its absorption. If your blood serum shows a high
level of potassium, increase the quantity of calcium in your diet. If the
potassium levels are really high, resort to calcium supplements.
Potassium levels that are higher
than the normal requirement of the human body can be quite dangerous if ignored.
If you have had this condition for some time, it is advisable to take corrective
medicinal action for it.
