Iryshkin noted that addiction to salty food is fraught with the development of a heart attack or stroke. The fact is that when eating foods saturated with salt, the body begins to retain water to normalize the salt balance. This is what contributes to the increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. In this regard, the specialist recalled that five grams of salt per day can be consumed without harm to health. At the same time, people suffering from high blood pressure need to limit salt in the diet to three grams per day.
Table salt also has less harmful counterparts.
“We can limit or replace salt. Any herbs or spices are suitable as a substitute. You can also buy salt with a lower sodium content. In salt, sodium is the first thing we are afraid of, because it increases blood pressure. It is easy to find potassium and magnesium salts in the store, for example “, – the nutritionist told the Russians.
