HYPERTENSION 

(HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE)

What to do at the supermarket:
If you really want to cut down on your sodium, start reducing processed foods from your diet. Buying basic ingredients and cooking at home, lets you control the amount of salt added to a dish. If you find home cooking to be too difficult, look at the nutrition panel of prepared foods you buy and opt for low sodium versions (less than 400mg per serving). If you are over 40 or suffer from high blood pressure, you need to be extra careful because your daily maximum value is 1500mg of sodium or less, vs. 2300mg for the rest of the population.
