High blood pressure: Sauces and condiments high in salt you must avoid – or increase risk

You must also watch your salt intake – the more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure, warns the NHS.

“Aim to eat less than 6g (0.2oz) of salt a day, which is about a teaspoonful,” advises the health body.

“Potassium also helps to ease tension in your blood vessel walls, which helps further lower blood pressure,” explains the AHA.
