    How can I reduce my salt intake? Nothing tastes good without salt!

  • Eating a salt-reduced (also called sodium-reduced) diet can be very beneficial for people with high blood pressure. Salt increases the volume of water in the bloodstream, thereby increasing the volume of blood as well as the pressure it exerts on artery walls.
  • To reduce salt intake, try cooking without salt or using low-salt foods. Adding spices and natural flavours with garlic, lemon, pepper, ginger, and onions can add more flavour to your favourite dishes. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet and decrease the amount of high-fat foods that you eat - they are also often higher in salt. Also, look for nutrition labels on food packaging that are marked with "low" or "no salt or sodium." One other piece of advice is to reduce the amount of salt over time. Start with adding a little bit less salt, and then slowly reducing the salt that is added in cooking. This way, there is a gradual tapering and your taste buds will readjust to the reduced salt intake.
  • Some medications also contain high amounts of sodium. This includes some over-the-counter and prescription medications. Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if the medication you are taking is right for you, especially if you are unsure about its sodium content.
