Benefits of a low sodium diet
- Keeps high blood pressure under control – Low sodium diets can help lower blood pressure in people with high blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic).
- Higher risk of cancer – Some studies have shown that high salt diets can damage the lining of the stomach and increase the growth of H.Pylori bacteria, which may increase the risk of developing stomach cancer.
- Improves the quality of food – Most of the packaged, refined foods contain significant quantities of salt for preservation and flavour enhancement. This is what we call junk food. When you start a low sodium diet, these junk foods will immediately be removed from your regular diet.
