10 signs that you are eating salt in a way that threatens your health

10 signs that you are eating salt in a way that threatens your health

The "Health Digest" health magazine published a report warning those who consume salt in large quantities, which exposes them to health problems, and doctors have identified ten signs that indicate that you eat "too much" salt.

The American Heart Association warned of an imminent danger sweeping the United States. It is the excessive use of salt in food. 9 out of 10 Americans consume a high proportion of salt in their diet. It is a phenomenon that also applies to the rest of the world.


And while doctors recommend eating no more than 2,300 mg of salt a day. The FDA reports that we are actually consuming about 3,400 mg per day on average. Nearly 50 percent more than what is generally recommended, according to Sky News Arabia.


Most of the salt we consume comes from the canned foods we buy, according to Health Digest.


The health journal has put up a number of signs indicating that you are eating "too much" salt. Know them below:


Thirst

Eat a lot of salt, whether from pizza, hamburger, popcorn, or any other food. It leads to the entry of large proportions of sodium into the bloodstream, which causes the body to frequently request water to process the sodium in the blood, which leads to constant thirst.


Go to the bathroom

When you eat a lot of salt, it turns into your bloodstream, your body senses its presence and pushes more water into your blood in an effort to settle things. While this is happening, your kidneys also begin to filter excess water from your system in the form of urine.



Bloating

Research conducted at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health revealed that a diet is high in sodium. It may increase a person's risk of developing flatulence by 27 percent.


Excess fluid in the blood from consuming too much salt can cause swelling in your extremities, especially the hands and feet.


Savor the food

Excessive use of salt weakens your sense of taste. And it gets you used to adding salt to food, which leads to the absence of the real taste of food. Not accepting it as it is, according to the journal.


the disease

According to a study published in Science Translational Medicine. Eating a diet high in salt can also make it difficult for your immune system to fight the different types of bacteria that cause illness.


acne

A recent study of 200 men and women showed that those with chronic acne among them were those who consumed high amounts of salt.


Dry skin

Studies show that high levels of salt in the diet lead to dry skin.


Sleep

A number of experts have finally added salt to the list of substances that should be avoided before bed, as it makes it more difficult to fall asleep.


overweight

Studies also indicate that the salts contribute to weight gain, as they add fats that are difficult to break down in the body, especially in the midsection.


Hypertension

Water that salt pulls into the bloodstream in an effort to balance your system also increases the amounts of blood in the body. This increase leads to blood being pushed out against the arteries and veins, which leads to an increase in pressure, and thus "high blood pressure."
