Use Herbs Instead Of Salt
Eating big amounts of salt upsets the balance in your blood, which makes your kidneys struggle to remove water. According to 2020 research in the Journal of Clinical Hypertension, this could lead to kidney disease. But unfortunately, many Western diets tend to overindulge in salt.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that people limit their salt intake to one teaspoon per day, or 2,100 mg. That’s about one-third less than most people consume. So Watch out for high sodium in pre-cooked and processed foods, as this is where kidney damage can sneak up on you.
