Did you know: Decreasing salt in the diet can lower the risk for heart disease THROUGHOUT LIFE
One of the main causes of high blood pressure is excess salt.
BEWARE: SALT BOMB!
A low sodium diet is 2000mg per day.
You can greatly reduce your salt intake by limiting restaurant food/packaged/processed foods.
How to read a label:
Look at the %DV (percent daily value)
Any % that is near 5% is considered LOW
Any % that is near 20% is HIGH
This serving of ramen has 32% sodium. That is >20%, which means this is a very high salt food!! Actually, this package of ramen has 2 servings!! 🤯 (Who shares a package of ramen?? See why you need to read labels??)
So you’re getting 1460mg or 64% of your day’s worth of salt in this 1 package of ramen. 😱🍜
