Hypertension is a term also called high blood pressure, capable of causing a vast amount of health problems. Elevated blood pressure can for example, increase the possibilty of developing atherosclerosis

Celtic Sea Salt Can Provide The Cure

An increase in arterial blood pressure can damage the arteries, causing them to become more susceptible to plaque or cholesterol buildup. High blood pressure can also damage your kidneys and put extra strain on your heart, resulting in an increased risk of heart failure. Some experts tout sea salt as being able to help treat high blood pressure, though its effectiveness has not yet been proven.

Magnesium To The Rescue

Use whole, unrefined sea salt. According to Dr. Lawrence Wilson, the reason why sea salt can help you lower your blood pressure is due to its magnesium content. Magnesium can be found in whole, unrefined sea salt, particularly in the Celtic sea salt variety.

Sodium Is The Killer

The reason why salt can contribute to high blood pressure is that it contains sodium, which causes your body to retain more water, which in tern increases blood volumes which raises your blood pressure.

Both sea salt and table salt contain sodium and you should aim to get no more than ½ teaspoon of sodium each day unless you already have high blood pressure, are African-American, or are middle age or older, you should aim for less than ½ teaspoon.

Sea Salt Is Less

In addition to containing magnesium, sea salt crystals are larger in size. This means that less sea salt fits onto a teaspoon than regular table salt because the crystals are not as densely packed. You may also find that the larger crystal size helps you use less salt when seasoning your food, due to the crystals being more visible

I'm so pleased that you found it informative as it's such a terrible killer of all people and of every race or creed. I was just so alarmed by the content of a research document, which made the reference:"Unless you already have high blood pressure, are African-American, or are middle age or older, you should aim for less than ½ teaspoon". Their heading lacked "Oomph" as Johnny Dod had so often rightly pointed out to me regarding some of my more mundane headlines way back in 2010 when I was very much a rookie here at Wikinut.com, (I still slip up badly, mind you) The response on this headline was phenomenal and had increased clicks by about 300% worldwide. Thanks for reading:0)

Did you know they did a study of young folks both black and white and found their blood pressure similar until they left school. Trying to find a job is stressful for most black Americans, usually they are the last hired and the first fired.

The whole of the country is eating from "fast food vendors," and everything they serve is loaded with sodium as a preservative. Young mothers don't have the time to cook or they don't know how to cook. Overdosing with salt is a national problem- not a particular segment of society.

Hello Siva, I agree, still, after battling with type ii diabetes for years and living on maximum med dosages and losing my right leg as well as my eyesight which I since regained, I got so tired of it all, and threw away the meds altogether, having kept only my testing kit. I have placed myself on a dose of 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder per day and eating sensibly, Not sure what your country's glucose metering is calibrated at, but here normal levels are on a measurement of 5. This being the case, you can imagine how dangerously high my levels were, being constantly in the upper 30's. Since the change to cinnamon powder, my levels had returned to normal and have remained there constantly for almost a year now. I am not suggesting anyone else trying it, merely sharing my own experience with cinnamon powder. Thank you for reading my friend.

Thank you TP for the valuable share. I am aware that you overcame heavy odds and you are an inspiration. I have seen the ravages of diabetes leading even to limb amputation. I am glad you are much better off now. I will keep this cinnamon intake in mind as medical science has a lot of catching up to do - siva

I had a salt pipe, a kind of inhaler, but it broke.
the replacement is a candle holder made of pink salt.
