Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

I wrote that a high salt intake may be linked to an increased chance of obesity, independent of how many calories are consumed, experts report. A new analysis published in the journal Hypertension found that an extra 1g a day of salt is associated with a 28% extra risk of being overweight or obese among children and a 26% increase in adults. However, some experts say the interpretation of the findings are over simplistic. How much salt do you take?

Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

For adults the daily amount of sodium chloride not exceed 6 g. This is approximately one teaspoon. According to statistics, many of us experience daily about half an overdose, consuming on average about 9-10 grams of salt. The salt content in many of your favorite products exceeds the acceptable rate by 4-5 times.Leading countries are developing special programs to reduce population intake of salt. If people begin to follow the recommendations, the statistics of strokes will decrease by more than 10%.Harmful salt is hidden in ready meals, canned products and semi-finished products. When visiting the chic restaurants, reveling in the rich aromas, we do not realize how harmful the behavior is.Therefore, studying the menu, always use common sense and think about his precious body.Buying groceries at the supermarket, pay attention to the salt content on the package. Misunderstandings can occur, because some manufacturers specify separately the contents of salt and sodium.

Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

A high salt diet is a major risk factor for high blood pressure and, if left untreated, can lead to stroke and heart disease.Recent studies have also associated a high salt diet to an increased risk of obesity, primarily through its effect on thirst, which can encourage people to have more sugar sweetened drinks.It also appears that salt is a marker of calorie intake and obesity risk, not necessarily a cause of it.It’s well established that we should be reducing the amount of salt we eat to help avoid high blood pressure, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease; and the link between salt intake and obesity.

HOW TO USE SALT
The daily requirement of our body in salt is 4 to 6 grams. This is about a teaspoon of salt. Most often We eat per day, about 9 grams of salt. Of course, surpluses accumulate in various organs and tissues of our body and prevent it to function normally.
Lethal dose - 3 grams of salt per 1 kg of body weight.
To abandon salt entirely is not recommended. The lack of salt in the diet decreases the activity of nerve cells. The decrease in production of the hormone insulin. As it entails an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
THE HARM OF SALT TO THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
Salt irritates the mucous membrane of the stomach, which can lead to gastritis and gastric ulcer.
SALT AS A CAUSE OF CATARACT
Australian scientists have proved that there is a link between excess salt in the body and the development of cataracts. A cataract is the clouding of the crystal eye. So salt increases blood pressure, which affects the function of the eye. The study involved about 3,000 people.

Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

Most studies in humans prove that the more food a person eats, the more salt they consume and the more weight he gains. A study was conducted adjusting for the fact that eating and drinking young people, and whether there was a correlation between salt intake and obesity. People ate food with high sodium content, also had high levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha, which is secreted by immune cells and contributes to chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and arthritis.
In addition, adolescents showed a high level of leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells that normally suppress appetite and burn fat, but at chronically high levels can provoke the opposite effect. It is very difficult to reduce weight, but perhaps most people succeed in reducing the intake of sodium. Such reduction can be achieved with minimal added salt to your food automatically. It is advisable not to be used. And it is better to prefer fresh fruits and vegetables to French fries and fried meats and snacks.

A high salt diet is a major risk factor for high blood pressure and, if left untreated, can lead to stroke and heart disease. Recent studies have also associated a high salt diet to an increased risk of obesity, primarily through its effect on thirst, which can encourage people to have more sugar sweetened drinks.Although the amount of salt we are eating has reduced in recent years, as a result of reformulation of manufactured foods, we are still exceeding recommended maximums. Most of the salt we eat is already in the foods we buy, which is why checking nutritional information on packs to make sure we are making the healthiest choice is important to help limit the amount of salt we are eating.

Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

In the first study of its kind, researchers suggest there may be a direct link between salt intake and obesity, independent of total energy intake or sugar sweetened beverage consumption (SSB). This has been highlighted in a nationally representative sample of the UK population, with a 1g/day increase in salt intake being associated with an increased risk of being overweight or obese by 28% in children and 26% in adults.Data obtained from a total of 458 children and 785 adults taking part in the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey’s (NDNS) rolling programme was used to assess energy intake and salt consumption [REF 2]. Results showed a consistent significant association between salt intake and BMI, waist circumference and body fat mass – independent of total energy intake and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption.

Pressure problems
Sodium contained in salt increases blood pressure, and in the case of existing problems in this area can lead to unpleasant consequences. That's why high blood pressure in the first place, it is necessary to pay attention to the amount of salt. As a rule, reduction of the daily intake of sodium chloride leads to a rapid stabilization of the situation.
Diseases of internal organs
Kidney, liver and heart are very sensitive to the presence of excess of sodium chloride. And a huge amount of water drunk after salty fish, has a negative impact on the cardiovascular system. By the way, if you are planning on dinner the dish, the composition of which contains salted fish or ROE, it would be better if before dinner you minimize the intake of salt in the body. Urolithiasis can occur, including due to excess consumption of salt.
Bone
Together with the chloride of sodium from our body leaches large amounts of calcium, which can lead to bone fragility, osteoporosis, degenerative disc disease. In addition, calcium is involved in the work of the heart muscle. The excess of salt which is deposited and accumulates over time, damages the joints, causing them dull pain, reducing their flexibility and mobility.

I eat very little of salt. They say that you should eat one little spoon of salt per day but mind please that some products have already contain salt. Also salt keeps water and other stuff, which should come out with sweat, in organism. Also if you eat too much salt, the extra water stored in your body raises your blood pressure. So, the more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure. The higher your blood pressure, the greater the strain on your heart, arteries, kidneys and brain. This can lead to heart attacks, strokes, dementia and kidney disease.

Salt intake 'directly linked to obesity'

On an average day a person consumes 3,300 mg of salt. ;) ;) ;) ;) Doctors advise to reduce that figure to 2,400 mg. overconsumption leads to increased blood pressure, increased burden on the kidneys and the recruitment of extra pounds. Body weight begins to increase due to the fact that the salt holds in the body excess fluid. Simultaneously with salty food the man begins to consume more sugar and fat. This addiction can cause the development of diseases of cardiovascular system, liver, diabetes, obesity. Doctors recommend minimizing salt intake.
