( — November 10, 2017) Orlando, FL — Salt is an essential ingredient for a variety of dishes. While it makes food tasty and offers some benefits, excessive consumption of this ingredient could lead to undesirable health consequences.

Increased use of salt at home could trigger hypertension. According to research, 69 percent of the population consumes salt in amounts above the recommended level of 5g per day.

High salt consumption has actually been found to cause the alarming increase in the incidence of hypertension.

This was revealed in the joint baseline survey performed by Achutha Menon Centre, which is part of Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute of Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST), on the prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD).

According to the study, on average almost one out of three adults above the age of 18 suffers from hypertension. There is also one out of five who suffers from diabetes. High salt consumption has been linked to both of these conditions due to its ability to put a strain on the arteries, heart, brain, and kidneys.

Experts recommend that an adult should consume no more than 5g of salt a day. It is further worth mentioning that over 80 percent of ingested salt comes from processed foods. This includes breakfast cereals, biscuits, bread and ready-to-eat meals.

Since salt could put extra strain on the arteries, it could lead to hypertension. Salt intake above normal levels could also affect the health of the kidneys, especially in individuals with diabetes.

There are medications available for managing hypertension. However, it is worth taking into account the use of safer, natural remedies like resveratrol. This natural remedy has been found helpful against the condition due to its antioxidant properties.

In a review in 2015, it was found that high doses of resveratrol may be helpful for decreasing pressure that is exerted on artery walls when the heart is beating. This is called systolic blood pressure, which actually goes up with age as arteries stiffen.

When the systolic blood pressure is high, it could be a risk factor for heart disease. The blood-pressure-lowering effects of resveratrol may be helpful for producing more nitric oxide, which causes blood vessel relaxation.
