Why you should eat less salt (and how to do it)

Eating too much salt can harm your health, and this risk increases as you age. Find out why adjusting your diet and reducing your salt intake are essential.

The health risks of excessive salt consumption

High salt consumption can lead to health problems that become more common as you age, such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Practical tips for reducing your salt consumption

One way to reduce salt consumption is to avoid highly processed foods, such as cold cuts, packaged soups and junk food. These foods are often very salty. Instead, try preparing more home-cooked meals and use herbs and spices to enhance the taste of your dishes. It’s also crucial to learn how to read the nutritional labels of food products. Remember that you shouldn’t eliminate salt from your diet — you just need to consume it in moderation.

Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with a dietitian-nutritionist to help you eat better.

Reducing your salt intake is a crucial step in maintaining your overall health. A few adjustments to your eating habits can significantly impact your long-term health.
