By simply reversing the emphasis, you could reap the benefits of improved digestion, and intestinal health (and more!) while minimising your intake of a mineral which in excess, can lead to raised blood pressure and risk of stroke.

So next time you tuck in, treat yourself to an extra pinch of pepper and a little less (or none at all) salt. Your body and mind will thank you for it!
