“Sodium is the part of salt that puts up our blood pressures. If you eat too much salt, there will be more sodium in your blood, and the sodium holds onto water.
“This upsets the fine balance of sodium and potassium that is needed for water to be pulled out of the blood and into the kidneys.
“By eating more foods that are high in potassium, you can help to restore the balance, allowing the kidneys to work well and lower your blood pressure.”
Many fruits and vegetables contain potassium.
