How to reduce sodium

We have been told many times that it is healthy to reduce sodium intake.

Too much sodium in the body is bad because:

  • It affects more water retention in the body
  • Which puts more pressure on the heart and blood vessels to function
  • May cause high blood pressure

Most people eat more sodium than they should, often without knowing it

Tips on reducing sodium

  • Use the Nutrition Facts label to check the amount of sodium in foods. Try to choose products with 5% Daily Value (DV) or less. A sodium content of 20% DV or more is high.
