Even if you don't think you eat much salt it is a hidden, unsuspected presence in all sorts of things if we just read the labels
I stopped eating it some years ago when I was - mistakenly, it turned out - diagnosed with osteoporosis. Certainly, in recent years, my RA is better than it was though I can't say for sure that is why. But I have high blood pressure anyway so I've never gone back to salt.
At first I thought I'd never be able to not use it on the few occasions I eat chips or jacket potatoes but our palates change and adapt. I used to love Californian olives whenever we went there but now all I can taste is salt. I rarely eat crisps but salt and vinegar ones are completely out. Yuk! I steam veg and this gives them much more flavour without salt.
People are often keen to take herbal remedies and supplements but they can cause just as many problems as pharmaceutical ones. This is such an easy thing to do and, though we all need a very small amount of salt in our diet, we all, in the west, eat far too much anyway. Why not suck it (or not, as the case may be
) and see.
