Break Up with Salt
Posted by ZumbaContraCosta on February 12, 2015
One of the American Heart Association’s Life’s Simple 7 tools is to manage blood pressure. At 140/90 you are considered hypertensive. The goal is less than 120/80. One of the easiest ways to control your blood pressure is to reduce your sodium intake by observing how much sodium is in the products you are buying. The American Heart Association recommends that you limit your salt intake to 1500 mg. per day. Guess how much salt is in a all-beef hot dog?
That’s almost half your daily allotment! The American Heart Association would like you to break up with salt.
