1.FALSE: Salt disturbs all balance in the body.
TRUE: Salt regulates the total alkaline-acid balance of the body by reducing acid accumulation in the cells, allowing the pH level in the body to be balanced. Salt is the ideal food source balancing the blood pH level. Otherwise, our immune system will deteriorate and we are alone with many diseases including kidney disorders and Alzheimer.
2.FALSE:It is unnecessary to consume external salt. We can also get the salt that we need from other food and beverages.
TRUE: Medical authorities say that every need of the body must be met from its true source. Just as the calcium and protein from the meat and milk products do not hold anything else, or the coffee and tea do not replace the water, the minerals that can be taken from the salt itself can not be taken from any other food or drink.
3.FALSE: Salt is a nutrient that needs to be consumed little, otherwise it breaks our health.
TRUE:According to the results of PURE research which was carried out in 18 countries including Turkey and of which results published in the respected medical journal New England Journal of Medicine, less consumption of salt led to some health risks. A salt intake of less than 3 grams per day can increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and impair our health.
4.FALSE: Remove salt immediately from your diet for a good sleep pattern.
TRUE: Salt maintains the body's hydrate level. Therefore, it has effects that increase sleep quality rather than insomnia. Salt increases the release of serotonin and melatonin, which help fight against stress, so we feel better during the day and have a much deeper and more quality sleep at night.
5.FALSE: Consuming more than 5 grams of salt on a daily basis creates a health problem for all of us.
TRUE: The metabolism rate of each unit is different. For this reason, the rate of sweating and hence the loss of salt is also different. For example, someone who works in a gym and a desk worker do not have the same amount of salt they sweat away from their body. As a result, the amount of salt that each person needs daily varies in proportion to the living conditions.
