Reducing salt intake is important

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends consuming less than 5 g of salt a day (equivalent to 2400 mg Sodium). Reducing salt intake is important for several reasons. It helps:- Control blood pressure – Support kidney health – Prevent fluid retention & Edema – Preserve bone health- Maintain proper hydration levels- Reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and coronary heart attack”An estimated 2.5 million deaths could be prevented each year if global salt consumption were reduced to the recommended level”. WHO Remember that while reducing salt intake is beneficial, it’s also essential to maintain a balance and not eliminate salt completely, as the body requires a certain amount of sodium for proper functioning.
