Excess sodium in the diet is linked to many health concerns. Doctors often recommend a low / no sodium intake to their patients. Reducing salt intake is one of several ways that people may lower their blood pressure. The relationship between salt intake and blood pressure is direct and progressive without an apparent threshold. Reducing blood pressure, ideally to the normal range, reduces the risk of heart failure stroke, heart disease and kidney disease.

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.
