Salt and your health ... Seemingly a very simple connection between these two is more complex notion than you can imagine. In this era of cardiovascular disease , it is certain that there is at least one man who has not heard that there is a connection between the amount of salt that enter the body, and your blood pressure. But, this issue we will be back later. Let us now say a few words about “her majesty” SALT. When you mention SALT, first thing that comes to your mind is kitchen salt, or sodium chloride (NaCl), without most people could never imagine a meal. So it has always been known to mankind as irreplaceable “widget” for every meal; in some periods of human history it has been one of the most valuable commodity when it comes to trade, and how much was actually valued and sought information tells us that the Roman soldiers received their wages in salt, and that is also called white gold. But do we really so much need?
In all the books related to medicine, and that know all the doctors, writes that “no salt=no life” SALT impact on the state of much needed electrolytes in our body, and the electrochemical processes in cells, so that today we have the term “cell membrane potential”. So it is said that Na is one of the main ions in the extracellular fluid, and has it in the plasma, and less in cells.It is responsible to regulate osmolality, acid-base balance and membrane potential of the cell.That is why the recommendation of doctors is to do a day in the organism enters 2.5 to 7 grams of sodium salt.To doctors recommendation ...
But what the doctors today (at least the vast majority) rather than "slaves" of large pharmaceutical companies, which, if there are not more diseases of modern times, the lack of need for medication to treat them, would be out of market.To be sure, not all doctors are like that, and they do not work for some form of coercion, but simply because of that situation they have more profit as well as pharmaceutical companies, was that the profits in the form of a large number of new patients to private clinics where peppery charge summaries, or in the form of seminars and courses the luxury resorts that they pay exactly the same pharmaceutical companies.But let us return to the real topic ...
Supplied by me to be in medical books are simply not true, they are imaginary.Real fact is that 95% of sodium in the body is out of the cells and only 5% is inside.What then what we actually need? What is the element that actually regulates the operation of the cell as the basic unit of the organism, and thus the entire body? It is potassium. Potassium in the body has different vital effects. It helps regulate body water, maintaining electrolyte balance and acid-base balance. This mineral also plays an important role in the transmission of electrical impulses to the heart, normalizing heart rhythm. It has important role in the tightening of the heart muscle, enzyme activity and the creation of a reserve of glycogen in liver cells.
Potassium especially coordinates the activity of kidney and gastric mucosa. Potassium in the body acts to maintain muscle tone, blood pressure, body water and other functions. Many researchers believe that the problem of high blood pressure, caused by excessive salt intake, increased if the diet does not have enough potassium. The richest natural sources are citrus fruits, tomatoes, lettuce, bananas, potatoes, broccoli and milk.
* The estimated minimum daily dose of K is about 2 grams, and the body by the use of third place, behind calcium and phosphorus. Potassium increases the transmission of nerve impulses, and contraction of muscles. The greatest enemies of potassium are: alcohol, coffee and sugar. A good intake of potassium provided smooth and tighten skin. Large content of potassium in food stimulates urination and elimination of toxins. The presence of potassium is essential for a good supply of the brain with oxygen, and thus a good reflection. For athletes is very important, because its lack of retreat and joint disease. When no potassium is lost and enthusiasm, we become lazy.
As we age, our body needs for potassium are bigger and bigger .. Certain enzymes require the presence of potassium chloride to activate at all. Potassium is lost in sweat and great effort, but also through their urine, which means that the introduction of large amounts of fluid in the body and on more releases. The question remains, why doctors recommend that a larger amount of water? Perhaps the proper nutrition brings into the body quite a lot of water? If we enter into the body large amounts of sodium salt or sugar, normally we would be thirsty. The organism will simply start to throw it out. And that is why we need potassium. Sometimes you do not drink water. So maybe you are adequately fed, because plant foods rich in organic water if additional water is needed.
Official Medicine says that daily intake of potassium for adults should be 3200 to 4100 milligrams (when I started a few years ago I read about nutrition, it was about 2000 mg !!!). That is only one small proof of wandering in the medicine. The largest deficit caused by excessive potassium ejection from the body. It is said that potassium is toxic in large quantities because if it is inserted directly into the bloodstream we are sentenced to death. It is different when potassium flows through the organs. Blood cells do not accept food and soda as feverishly to defend itself from him. In the defense potassium, which is the happy blood cells pass through a membrane, has been fighting to stop the penetration of sodium into the cell and carry it out through the kidneys ... and in this struggle is being spent.
And if something so fundamental is spent, it needs to be regularly compensate by entering it into the body, either through raw fruits and vegetables mentioned above, or by products that have recently entered the market in question is POTASSIUM SALT.Use of this product is recommended for people with high blood pressure, with heart and kidney problems (in consultation with the doctor), it can help people continue to enjoy the salty food, without fear that there will be deterioration in their health.POTASSIUM SALT contains 2 / 3 sodium, and 1 / 3 potassium as a perfect balance of the two most important minerals for the human body. By using this salt you will solve two problems, the occurrence of high blood pressure and water retention.You would live healthy.
