If You Want To Curb Cravings For Salt…Eat Spicy Foods

Can’t resist that bag of potato chips or a few extra handfuls of salted peanuts? Add some pepper to your meals.

Participants who indicated a strong affinity for spicy foods were found to not only consume less salt than those who liked them the least, but their systolic and diastolic blood pressure numbers were significantly lower.
