Reduce the risk of contracting heart disease by swapping your regular table salt

Most of us have the habit of munching something or the other, snacks, or processed foods and this is where we consume extra salt, unknowingly. By substituting potassium chloride in varying amounts for regular table salt that contains sodium chloride, you can dramatically reduce blood pressure which further reduces the chances of getting diseases

Most of us have the habit of munching something or the other chips, snacks, or processed foods and this is where we consume extra salt, unknowingly. By substituting potassium chloride in varying amounts for regular table salt that contains sodium chloride, you can dramatically reduce people’s blood pressure which further reduces the chances of getting heart attacks, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases. 

A study involving more than 24,000 participants conducted in China also found that salt substitutes lowered the risks of early death by 11%, cardiovascular disease by 13%, and the risks of heart attack or stroke by 11%. Each 10% reduction in sodium chloride in the salt substitute was linked with a 1.5 mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure and about a 1 mm Hg fall in diastolic blood pressure.

However, salt substitutes can be dangerous when you have conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease, hypertension, liver disease, or diabetes. These chronic conditions can sometimes raise potassium levels in your blood, and using potassium chloride salt substitutes can tip that balance dangerously.

Using salt substitutes with certain medicines like ACE inhibitors and potassium-sparing diuretics can push blood potassium levels too high. 

You can substitute your regular table salt with sendha namak but do consult doctor before doing so as some conditions/medicines are contradictory with sendha namak.

Health benefits of Sendha namak

  • Sendha namak is a highly valued salt in Ayurveda and offers numerous health benefits like treating colds and coughs, and improving digestion and eyesight.
