Submitted by admin on Thu, 06/20/2013 - 15:13
Studies suggest that following the DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) may help lower blood pressure.

Submitted by admin on Thu, 12/16/2010 - 08:32

Americans have a supersized salt habit. (On average we eat 3,400 milligrams of sodium in a day, which is about 11⁄2 teaspoons of salt.) If we—as a population—slashed sodium by about 1,000 mg (1⁄2 teaspoon) out of our daily diets, we’d lower our risk of heart disease by up to 9 percent, according to a recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Save salt with these 3 easy ways to trim 1,000 mg of sodium:

1. Trade a meaty personal-size pizza for a veggie version.

2. Eat 1 less tablespoon soy sauce with your sushi.
