Happy Heart Health Month

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), nine out of 10 Americans consume too much sodium. The average American consumes 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day, more than double the 1,500 milligram or less recommended for ideal heart health.
Excessive sodium intake may have far-reaching effects on your health by putting you more at risk for high blood pressure, stroke, and heart failure. The AHA reports that high blood pressure is the leading risk factor for death in women in the U.S., contributing to over 200,00 deaths every year. That’s more than four times the number of women who die of breast cancer.

But the impact of a high-sodium diet doesn’t stop there. Elevated consumption of sodium/salt
may also contribute to osteoporosis, kidney disease, stomach cancer, puffiness and bloating.
While restaurants and personal use contribute to sodium intake, 65 percent of sodium comes
from food purchased at supermarkets and convenience stores.
The good news is that by readying labels and choosing brands wisely, you can drastically
reduce your sodium/salt intake. Surprising, the top six saltiest foods to look out for aren’t things
you would think of as salty. They include:
Bread and Rolls

Cold Cuts and Cured Meats
Burritos and Tacos
At Irene’s Bakery, we take the work out of grocery shopping by taking the salt out your favorite
kosher bakery and deli products. Enjoy a fat-free and low-sodium Biscotti with your morning
coffee knowing that you are making a heart-healthy start to your day. Share a Spinach Knish
with a friend confident that it only has a hint of salt. Or end dinner with a sweet Cinnamon Twist
containing only 2 percent of your daily sodium intake. Excited about how Irene’s Bakery can
help you live and love a heart-healthy life? We are too!
