What – You Still Think Salt Consumption Causes High Blood Pressure? ("just stay away from refined commercial salt")

What – You Still Think Salt Consumption Causes High Blood Pressure? ("just stay away from refined commercial salt") | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Do you still think high sodium intake leads to high blood pressure? Actually, this is a myth. Here is the story, plus a sound solution for hypertension.

High sodium intake as a source of high blood pressure has been an unchallenged dogmatic mantra for decades. But a few renegade MDs, several naturopaths, and chiropractors have challenged the unproven hypothesis of salt being the basis of high blood pressure (HBP). Turns out that the link between high sodium intake and elevated blood pressure is a false one.

Pure, unrefined salt is actually a necessary and helpful dietary component. Perhaps the most well known salt promoter is Dr. David Brownstein, MD, author of Salt Your Way to Health. Refined commercial table salt, used excessively in processed foods, is processed with toxic chemicals and stripped of its inherent nutritional value. It’s mostly poison with very little nutrition, though even using table salt often won’t lead to high blood pressure.

Actually, those with high blood pressure (and everyone, really) should just consume more foods rich in potassium. Meta-analysis’ show how low potassium intake has the same impact on blood pressure as high salt consumption – the real problem is an imbalance between sodium and potassium.

Choose the right "healthy salt. It turns out that the "refined commercial table salt" is not recommended, but neither does it lead to high blood pressure.
