Salt and High Blood Pressure, part 2

Articles by Dr. Erdman are for informational purposes, and are not to be taken as specific medical advice.

Following up on the last article on blood pressure and a low sodium diet, we will look at what types of salt you should be eating, how much you can take in and other ways of reducing blood pressure.

There are several types of salt we could use, but only a few should be consumed. Always avoid processed white salt, it is the worst one to eat because it has no balance of other necessary minerals such a magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iodine.
