Salt is one of the oldest food seasonings and it has an important role to play in food preservation.

Scientists are convinced that the salt (sodium chloride) is not only beneficial for human body, but also, our system even needs some of it for a normal functioning. Salt is involved in regulating the water content in our body, but excessive salt intake can have negative effects and is dangerous for kidney, heart and it can, even, encourage high blood pressure.

Therefore, the World Health Organization recommends that adults should consume less than 2,000 mg of sodium (5 grams of salt) per day, depending, of course, on your age and body type. (Source)

Everything could be well, but we don’t always know how much salt gets into our body, because so many packaged products, harmless, at the first sight, are overloaded with salt. Here are some tips on how you can lower the consumption of salt and stay healthy:

1. Avoid smoked fish and smoked meat.

These products contain huge amounts of salt. You can replace smoked products with boiled veal, chicken or turkey.

2. Spice up your salads with fresh juice.

Lemon, lime or orange juice can be a wonderful substitute of salt in salads.

3. Put citric pepper into your dishes instead of salt.

This seasoning perfectly supplements vegetable or meat dishes, soups and pastas.

4. Refuse packaged juices.

One glass of vegetable juice from a package (for example, a tomato juice) can contain the daily doze of salt, so, be careful!

5. Read the ingredients list.

Not only salt contains sodium, but also, it can be found in a baking powder and in a flavour enhancers…so, be aware.
