Researchers found that a low-sodium diet reduced systolic blood pressure (top number of blood pressure) by 22.7 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and diastolic blood pressure (bottom number of blood pressure) by 9.1 mm Hg. The American Medical Association Council on Science and Public Health, also found that reducing dietary salt could save up to 150,000 lives a year in the U.S. alone.
In addition to the devastating effects on the body, a high sodium habit doesn't come cheap. Medical costs for cardiovascular disease are predicted to triple from $273 billion to $818 billion from 2010 to 2030. Cutting back on sodium intake by 1,200 mg/day could save $18 billion in medical costs each year.
Today, U.S. government guidelines recommend that adults consume no more than 2,300 mg of sodium/day. People with high blood pressure (hypertension), middle-aged and older adults, and African-Americans, should consume no more than 1,500 mg/day. About two-thirds of all American adults have high blood pressure. In fact, the average 50-year-old has a 90% chance of developing high blood pressure as he/she ages
Potassium is an essential mineral that plays a pivotal role in blood pressure health. A proper balance of potassium and sodium both inside and outside cells is crucial for the body to function properly.
Potassium is an electrolyte, a positive charged ion that must maintain a certain concentration in order to carry out its functions. That includes interacting with sodium to help control nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction and heart function.
Insufficient potassium intake (less than 3500 mg/day) contributes to high blood pressure and increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. Fact is, potassium is essential to heart health.
