Living with lowered blood pressure be eating 'no salt added' foods

Filed under:

Want to lower your blood pressure? Seek out reduced-sodium and low-salt foods and avoid using table salt on everything you eat to liven up the taste.

That, according to new study findings. High salt intake has long been connected to a rise in blood pressure, and the study suggested avoiding pre-salted foods and not adding salt to foods. In a world where all talbes have salt and pepper shakers, that is a toughie, yes?

That sounds pretty easy, until you realize just how bland most foods can be. Try this: use pepper, spices and garlic in place of salt. You'll get the taste and in most cases, almost no sodium!
