Eat– for Good Health

The salt that safeguards you!  A two-year study found that folks who swapped regular table salt for potassium-enriched salt containing less sodium, such as Morton’s and Cardia Salt (now found in supermarkets) were 41% less likely to suffer from heart disease and had lower risk of stroke.

Here’s why– Potassium is an electrolyte our bodies need to maintain normal heart rhythms, plus studies show it helps tame high blood pressure.  What’s more, decreasing your sodium intake reduces pressure on blood vessels, helping ease your heart’s workout.

Get energized!  Upping your potassium intake can boost your pep.  Credit goes to its ability to improve muscle cell health and help your body burn carbs for fuel.
