Edible salt, which is added to almost every dish, is not just called “white death”. Passion for this seasoning threatens with serious problems with blood vessels.

“Sodium chloride in the vascular wall enhances the strength (rigidity) of the vascular wall and contributes to its spasm. In this case, the heart must push blood through such rigid vessels with great pressure. Accordingly, people who suffer from ischemic disease, hypertension, atherosclerosis, metabolic disorders, urgently need to reduce the amount of salt in food.– explains nutritionist Mariyat Mukhina.

A useful alternative to salt are natural salt substitutes – special mixtures for use in cooking. They are low in sodium.

“Take, for example, Himalayan salt, which is colored pink. There are ions of manganese, magnesium, there is a whole mineral complex, which, of course, is more useful than pure sodium chloride. In microdoses, this is a very useful product.– Dr. Mukhina is sure.

According to their taste, salt substitutes do not differ from the usual table salt. Cooking with them is easy and healthy for the whole family.
