Salt’s Role in Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmunity is a condition that results when our immune system is overactive.  When this happens, our immune system starts to attack healthy tissue resulting in autoimmune conditions like multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes.

Recently, researches have found a new link to the cause of autoimmune disease which we all have been using every day.  SALT!

One step for those that have been already diagnosed with an autoimmune condition is to limit their salt intake.  Don’t forget that processed foods are also loaded with sodium.  Stick to the outer walls of the food stores to be sure to stick away from processed foods!
