Worldwide sufferers of high blood pressure affect more than one in four people.

According to the World Health Organization high blood pressure is when the systolic pressure is over 140 mmHg and the diastolic pressure is higher than 90 mmHg.

This is known medically as hypertension.

If it is not treated, hypertension damages the brain, heart and nerves.

Hypertension represents a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke, which are among one of the most common causes of death in western countries.

Salt as a cause of high blood pressure

Our bodies need salt. Among other things, salt ensures a stable pressure in the body’s cells.

However, if we take on to much salt, the body tries to get rid of the surplus as quickly as possible.

This in turn raises the blood pressure.

International studies show that the more salt that is consumed the higher the blood pressure and with it comes all the connected dangers such as heart attacks and strokes, etc.

In Germany, the average salt intake is nine to ten grams per day, far more than the German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommended six grams.

Almost 38 million Germans have severe high blood pressure, often without knowing it.

High blood pressure can be reduced with various medications, but a change in diet can have a very positive effect on blood pressure.

Salt in hypertension

Numerous scientific studies prove that the restriction of the consumption of salt can lower high blood pressure.

The "New England Journal of Medicine" in 2001 published a study where the systolic pressure was lowered by an average of 6.7 mmHg because salt consumption was reduced to less than three grams per day.

With a consumption of six grams of salt per day, as it recommends the DGE, the pressure decreased by an average of 2.1 mmHg.

A low-salt diet therefore makes sense.

Up to one third of the people are "salt-sensitive" and they react to excessive salt intake with a rise in the blood pressure.

About 50 percent of people with hypertension are salt sensitive.

Alternatives to salt in hypertension

Half of all high-pressure patients can benefit from a reduction in salt consumption, which can also enhance the effects of antihypertensive drugs.

A test for salt sensitivity does not yet exist.

Therefore, the DGE and the German Hypertension League generally recommends that all high-pressure patients try to give up salt or restrict their salt intake in order to reduce high blood pressure.

Table salt is extremely harmful for people with high blood pressure and it should therefore be consumed only in small quantities.

Alternatively, food can be seasoned with fresh aromatic herbs, but there are also ready-made herbal blends available from the spice shop.
