#FridayFacts | Blood pressure myth 2 checked: “Salt is especially bad for high blood pressure!”

Our second hypertension myth put to the test:
“Salt is especially bad for high blood pressure!” 🧂🚫
✅ That is absolutely right. Salt binds water in the body, which increases the volume of the blood. The pressure in the vessels increases and the blood pressure rises. This effect is different for each person. However, if you use less total salt, the high blood pressure medications may work better.
