Healthy Tip of the Day-Salt vs. Sugar

Healthy tip of the day-If you eat too much salt, you simply PEE it out. If you eat too much sugar, it leads to elevated blood sugar and insulin levels, which causes salt retention. Don’t blame salt for what the sugar did.

Healthy tip of the day salt vs. sugar.

Whether you’re eating too much sugar or too much salt, you are putting your heart at risk. But which one is worse for your heart health?
Who doesn’t like to devour a dish that is both spicy and salty? And who can forget the delicious sweet dish we all eat? Well, the heart wants what it wants but is it healthy for your heart? In the past few decades, research has increasingly shown that a diet rich in salt and sugar can trouble your heart and put you at risk of several cardiovascular diseases. For the sake of your heart, let us find out if sugar and salt are good for your heart or not!

Why is sugar bad for your heart?

Natural sugars may not be as bad for you as processed sugar or even artificial sweeteners. Ever heard of added sugars in processed foods? Well, your favourite junk foods – soft drinks, processed fruit juices, cookies, candies, cakes – contain added sugar which can lead to several health problems.

How does salt affect your heart?

By salt, we mean your sodium intake. While sodium is an essential mineral required for maintaining overall health, too much of it can be problematic for not just your heart but the body. Dr Tandon says 1500 mg of sodium per day is more than enough for an adult to meet their daily sodium requirements. As per the Foods Safety and Standards Authority of India, your sodium intake should be less than 5 grams a day. Also, salt is not the only source of sodium. Bread, pizza, sandwiches, cold meat, soups, savoury snacks, poultry, cheese, omelettes and more daily foods contain a lot of sodium.
