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.

Bert Guevara's curator insight, February 11, 9:08 PM

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.

Artificial sweeteners induce glucose intolerance

Artificial sweeteners induce glucose intolerance | The Basic Life | Scoop.it

sNon-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) are among the most widely used food additives worldwide, regularly consumed by lean and obese individuals alike. NAS consumption is considered safe and beneficial owing to their low caloric content, yet supporting scientific data remain sparse and controversial. Here we demonstrate that consumption of commonly used NAS formulations drives the development of glucose intolerance through induction of compositional and functional alterations to the intestinal microbiota. These NAS-mediated deleterious metabolic effects are abrogated by antibiotic treatment, and are fully transferrable to germ-free mice upon faecal transplantation of microbiota configurations from NAS-consuming mice, or of microbiota anaerobically incubated in the presence of NAS. We identify NAS-altered microbial metabolic pathways that are linked to host susceptibility to metabolic disease, and demonstrate similar NAS-induced dysbiosis and glucose intolerance in healthy human subjects. Collectively, our results link NAS consumption, dysbiosis and metabolic abnormalities, thereby calling for a reassessment of massive NAS usage.

We have been using non-caloric artificial sweeteners for more than a century. Today the food industry is using them in ever-greater quantities in 'diet' foodstuffs and they are recommended for weight loss and for individuals with glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes mellitus. This report shows that consumption of the three most commonly used non-caloric artificial sweeteners — saccharin, sucralose and aspartame (Sweet-n-Low, Equal & Splenda)— directly induces a propensity for obesity and glucose intolerance in mice, by changing the gut microbiome in a way that leads to absorption of more calories and that compromises glucose tolerance.  In healthy human subjects, and suggest it may be necessary to develop new nutritional strategies tailored to the individual and to variations in the gut microbiota.

Donovan Baldwin's curator insight, December 29, 2014 9:18 AM

A life without sweeteners of any kind is not actually that bad. However, if you must have sweetness, it appears that artificial sweeteners are still better than sugar. Try the 21 Day Sugar Detox. Learn more at http://nodiet4me.com/review/sugar_detox.html
