As the National Heart Health Examiner, heart-health advocate and living with heart disease, I’m thrilled to learn about products that put the consumer’s health above all else. Blood pressure that continues to be high overtime can cause stroke and is a huge risk for heart disease. Many American’s simply have too much salt. Now thanks to Salt for Life those who need to watch their salt intake can still enjoy the delicious taste of salt. However, most Americans consume too much salt. Salt for Life is intended for all consumers that are wellness-minded, not just those with heart health issues. The American Heart Association recommends limiting your sodium intake to less than 2,000 milligrams per day. And this may be easier said than done, due to the amount of sodium found in processed and canned foods. Frozen foods can even contain high amounts of sodium in an effort to keep them fresh longer. In addition, many sauces contain high amounts of sodium–sometimes more than fifty percent of your daily value per serving.
Salt for Life is gluten-free, made with non-GMO ingredients, is Kosher Certified by the Orthodox Union and is now bottled in a clear BPA-free and recyclable PET package. Salt for Life is “Nature’s Alternative Salt,” a blend of naturally sourced potassium salt and sea salt – perfect for cooking and baking or sprinkling on your favorite snacks and foods. Consumers everywhere can enjoy and use Salt for Life in the same way and amount that they would use regular salt.
Salt remains a beloved taste for many people, it is just that most of us consume far more traditional sodium salt than we should. With Salt for Life, everyday cooks, chefs and foodies can responsibly enjoy the salt taste they want, but with improved nutrition,” explained Manuel.
According to leading health organizations – such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) – most adults and children consume more sodium than they need with many consuming more than twice their recommended limit each day. Excess sodium consumption has been shown to cause or elevate numerous chronic health conditions. According to many nutritionists a potassium-to-sodium intake of 2-to-1 may help counterbalance the negative effects of consuming too much sodium. The CDC also emphasizes balancing potassium and sodium and advises that in general, “people who reduce sodium, who increase potassium, or who do both benefit from having lower blood pressure and reducing their risk for other serious health problems.”
