Filed under: Food and NutritionWant 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!
