Study: Heart attack can be lowered by dietary salt substitutes
Aug 15, 2022
New Delhi, Aug 15 (ANI): The findings of a recent study suggest that dietary salt substitutes lower the risk of heart attack, stroke and death from all causes and cardiovascular disease, finds a pooled data analysis of the available evidence. The findings were published online in the journal Heart. The beneficial effects of these substitutes are likely to apply to people all around the world, say the researchers. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and high blood pressure is a major risk for early death. A diet high in sodium and low in potassium is known to drive up blood pressure. Around 1.28 billion people around the world have high blood pressure, although more than half of these are undiagnosed, say the researchers. Salt substitutes, in which a proportion of sodium chloride (NaCl) is replaced with potassium chloride (KCl), are known to help lower blood pressure.
