Low-Carbohydrate, Low-Sodium Foods

Low-Carbohydrate, Low-Sodium Foods

Bamini Gopinath of Westmead, Australia's Millennium Institute and colleagues explored the effects of high-sugar and high-carbohydrate diets on hearing in a 2010 study. While these researchers do not suggest cutting sugars and carbohydrates from your diet, they found that people who eat excessive amount of these compounds are more likely to develop poor hearing. Dr. Wright came to similar conclusions with sodium, suggesting that a reduction in sodium may help improve your hearing. However, as these researchers all note, there are risks associated with severely limiting your intake of these important compounds. As suggested by Dr. Wright, the best way to ensure you do not experience these ill effects is to design a low-carb, low-sodium diet with your doctor

    Healthline just published a visualization of your daily value of sodium. In the chart, you can see what half of your DV of salt looks like for 30 foods:

    This is very valuable content as it puts nutrition information into perspective and helps a person understand how much sodium is actually in their food. I thought this would be of interest to your audience and wanted to see if you would include this as a resource on your page:

    If you do not believe this would be a good fit for a resource on your site, even sharing this on your social communities would be a great alternativeto help get the word out.

    Thanks for your time reviewing. Please let me know your thoughts and if there are any questions I can answer.

    All the best,
