March is National Nutrition Month—an education and information campaign sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to bring attention to the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating habits. As we are constantly faced with an abundance of food and nutrition options, making smart eating choices becomes a priority for good health.

To support National Nutrition Month, Salt for Life™ Sea Salt Blend is making a $5,000 donation to the American Heart Association and is stressing the importance of monitoring our daily sodium intake. A major risk factor for heart disease is high blood pressure, and a high-sodium diet has been repeatedly identified as a key risk factor. The American Heart Association is committed to improving Americans’ heart health through implementation of national goals for health promotion and disease prevention. Among these goals is the promotion of healthy eating, which includes reducing sodium intake.

In the past, significantly reducing sodium in recipes usually meant blander flavors, and using salt alternatives gave foods an unappetizing off-flavor. It is now easy to reduce sodium without sacrificing taste, thanks to Salt for Life Sea Salt Blend. Salt for Life Sea Salt Blend provides that great salt taste you love, with a natural blend of sea salt enriched with potassium, and contains 70% less sodium than table salt. Salt for Life Sea Salt Blend can be used as a one-to-one replacement in recipes or when sprinkling on foods.

“We want people to be more aware of the sodium they consume daily and to know that preparing and enjoying delicious low-sodium meals at home can also be easy,” said Peter Kaye, chief marketing officer of Nu-Tek Food Science, the company behind Salt for Life. “We’re eager to help spread the word about how important it is for people to pay attention to what they’re eating and how lowering sodium can have tremendous benefits for their health.”
