Salt (sodium chloride) is an indispensable element for all the different physiological functions and for the cellular homeostasis of our body. It is therefore undeniable that in his absence our body would no longer be able to survive, as long as we do not exaggerate in consuming too much of it with the risk of increasing hypertension and, therefore, the manifestation of cardiovascular diseases: than is there a "right" daily amount of salt for a balanced and correct diet?
As noted by nutritionists from all over the world, t is essential to measure the intake of salt so that we can ensure the proper vital functioning of the organism without damaging it. Quite an arduous task, as it is not always easy to not get off the track, especially in recent times where canned ready-to-eat foods reign supreme, hyper-salted for the conservation, which also require less cooking time than other healthier foods.
Dr. Francesco Corti, an expert biologist and nutritionist from Bergamo, shows us with scientific data that "an excessive consumption of salt leads to the adoption of a series of erroneous behaviors that, in a chain, can cause a clear deterioration of the state of health of one's body": the expert's opinion is that "salt recalls salt". It is well known that a too salty diet "spoils" the taste receptors and therefore leads to the search for foods of equal sapidity, often represented by snacks, packaged foods and other ready-to-eat foods that, on the whole, generate more and more addiction, add many calories and they provide fewer nutrients.
