Sodium Diet

High Sodium Diet Causes Raised Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

Eating too much sodium (eg. salt) causes fluid to be contained in the blood vessels. This increase in blood volume inside the circulatory system causes a rise in blood pressure. Fortunately, sodium intake (and thus to an extent your blood pressure) can be controlled by doing three things:

  • Eat a diet of fresh rather than processed food.
  • Be aware of the sources of sodium in your diet.
  • Eat less salty food, and less table salt.

Low Sodium Diet Advice

Eat More Fresh Foods, Less Processed Foods
Eat more fruits, vegetables and unrefined whole grains, and reduce your intake of high-sodium processed foods. Such processed foods include: Soups, Ready-to-eat cereals, Celery salt, Garlic salt, Catsup, Mustard, Sauces, Baking powder, Baking soda, Potato chips, Corn chips, Tortilla chips, Saccharin-flavored soda, Club soda, Sodium-nitrite cured meats (eg. bacon, ham, salami), Fast food.

Be Aware of the Sodium Content of Processed Foods
Check food labels for any ingredients containing the word "sodium." Subject to your doctor's advice, choose lower-sodium foods whenever possible.

Add Less Salt to the Food on Your Plate
Keep salt off the table and use other herbs and spices to add extra flavor.

Recommended Low Sodium Diet

For a recommended diet to reduce sodium intake and raised blood pressure, see DASH Diet

Advice on Diets

Special diets or diet plans with special diet foods are sometimes needed for particular health conditions. Ask your doctor, dietitian or nutritionist about your personal dietary needs. Otherwise, a balanced diet program containing foods from all the nutritional food groups is best.
