Salt does not really cause high blood pressure

The Real Salt of the Earth and High Blood Pressure

Contrary to what you may have heard about salt, fewer than 20 percent of people with high blood pressure improve on a low-salt diet. The real problem with salt isn't salt at all... it's a lack of potassium. The other problem is also the Sugar and Chemically toxic iodine they add to the salt.

The iodine is an agricultural waste by product. The EPA (environmental protection agency) has really strict laws about the companies who make this and what they can do with it. So they sell it to salt companies to add to the salt because in the Midwest in America we used to be iodine deficient.

Your body needs real salt, straight from the earth, and is well-equipped to handle it. But commercial salt producers remove all the good minerals (for sale to industry) and add several harmful chemicals (to bleach the salt white and keep it from caking).

Potassium neutralizes the negative effect of too much sodium. It also lowers your risk of heart attack and stroke. But we just don't get enough potassium in our diets. The media loves to scare you into thinking that too much salt will cause all sorts of health problems - but the right amount of potassium keeps everything in check.

So where do you find potassium?

Despite what banana growers want you to think, bananas are not the best source. A typical banana gives you just 490 mg of potassium. You'd have to eat 10 bananas to get the 5,000 mg a day I recommend. And when you figure in the glycemic index (GI) of bananas, eating 10 a day would make you put on fat. Instead, try an avocado, which will give you 1,483 mg of potassium with a much lower GI. But your best source of this mineral is nuts. They are quite high in potassium and have a glycemic index of zero.

What else is a good source of potassium? Name any fruit. Yep, that is a good source of potassium. Really, most fruits are great sources of potassium.

So what causes High Blood Pressure? Actually, what can you do to lower your high blood pressure? Read my article here on lowering high blood pressure
