Kick the Sodium Habit!


Eating too much sodium increases blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease and stroke.  The American Heart Association wants to help all Americans lower the amount of sodium they consume. 

Here’s what we’re doing to help: 

  • encouraging manufacturers to reduce the amount of sodium in the food supply;
  • advocating for more healthy foods to be available and accessible (for example, more fruits and vegetables); and
  • providing consumers with education and decision-making tools to make better food choices.

To learn what  you can do, please get the facts on shaking the habit.
