INTERACTIONS BETWEEN OXIDATIVE STRESS AND INFLAMMATION IN SALT-SENSITIVE HYPERTENSION -(08-04-08)

Interactions between oxidative stress and inflammation in salt-sensitive hypertension.

While this was a rat study, it does raise the question of whether salt, by itself, is truly an issue at all with hypertension. And given that reducing salt intake does not produce much bang for the buck anyway, it is surprising how much we hang our “hat” on this recommendation. Truly, high sodium intake is likely to be a marker for intake of processed foods. More processed foods will have little or no redox potential.

This correlates strongly with the findings in this study, suggesting that antioxidants attenuate the kidney damage that occurs from high salt intake.
