Sodium Intake - Systolic Blood Pressure Increase
As a 52 y.o., 185ish lb., long term moderate intensity but consistent exercising male, I have enjoyed blood pressure readings on the low side since I can remember. (approx. 110/65.)
Over the past ten days, I've made a concerted effort to attain ketosis and I have been consuming a half teaspoon of sea salt daily, (per Volek & Phinney,) in addition to liberally sprinkling it on my food. (I didn't touch salt for about a 30 year stretch at one point, accepting the C.W . that it, along with dietary fat, is "evil.")
I have a home BP device, and I have noticed a definite increase in my systolic BP readings. Approx. 132/65.
Implications? Cause for concern?
