Restricting salt intake may be dangerous to health

A number of official sources and medical practitioners have been saying that reducing the salt intake will make you healthier. This has been accepted as truth for the last decade at least, and many people have adopted this diet plan as their own. While too much salt will definitely not be good for your health, restricting salt intake severely can be harmful

It's true that high salt intake has been blamed over the years for heart diseases, but it has also been shown that a low salt intake is associated with higher mortality from cardiovascular events. In studies comparing sodium intake, there was an association between cardiovascular death and low salt intake and also the number of hospitalizations cases for coronary heart failure.

A low salt diet increases the hormones and lipids in the blood. A study found that people with a low percentage of sodium developed higher levels of renin, cholesterol, and trygliherides. These results show that the slight reduction in blood pressure is a small advantage compared to the numerous disadvantages being presented as a result of a low salt diet. This can be seen on a global scale and it affects global population very severely. Therefore, it is a myth that a low salt diet will always benefit your health is not actually true.
