    Salt Skynaijamusic.net  300x175 - Reasons why consuming too much salt could be harmful to the body

    If you are used to adding more salt to your food every now and then, this one may come to you by surprise!

    A recent study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology reveals that consuming too much salt through food could be harmful for overall health.

    According to this study, an inappropriate technique of consuming and estimating sodium could account for paradoxical findings of others.

    Although, it’s difficult for you to estimate how much sodium you consumes in a day. The best way to measure is through sodium excretions.

    While salt is something you cannot have your food without, it is necessary to keep a check on how much salt you consume. Consuming too much salt can have serious negative effects on your health.

    It increases your blood pressure and some studies suggest that it is linked to cognitive decline as well. Research shows that on an average, our daily salt intake should be 6 grams. But most people consume 7.2 grams of salt every day.

    Here are 5 serious signs that you are consuming too much salt:

    1. Frequent mild headaches

    Do you experience mild headaches every now and then? Chances are that these headaches are dehydration-induced. Consuming too much salt is likely to give you headaches in short intervals due to dehydration. Drink lots of water to beat these headaches.

    2. You crave for salty foods

    When your taste buds adapt to salty flavors, it craves for the same again and again. You suddenly feel the need to eat salted peanuts, chips and other salty treats.

    3. You find food bland and boring

    Do you feel the need to add more salt to your food every now and then? Do you continuously find food bland and boring? Well, that’s probably because you are used to eating too much salt. Over time, your taste buds adapt to that flavor and that is where your need to add more salt to food comes from.

    4. Persistent thirst

    Consuming too much salt can leave you feeling thirsty most of the time. This happens because foods with high sodium content mess with your body’s fluid balance. The best way to make up for this is to drink lots of water. Your body continues to give you a signal that it needs more water to restore salt balance in your body.

    5. Swelling in strange places

    Consuming too much salt can give you swelling in different parts of the body. This could be a reason why you feel bloated in the morning. The swelling can be felt on the fingers and around the ankles. This swelling is caused by excessive fluids in the body’s tissues and is known as edema. Edema is believed to be a symptom of an underlying health condition or a sign of the fact that you are consuming too much salt. Simple solution for this is to cut down on your sodium intake.
