As a way of reducing blood pressure, which is bad on the heart, reduce the amount of sodium (salt) you intake.
You may be thinking of table salt but you should know that many canned vegetables, soups, even soda, are very high in sodium.
Look at your labels and try to cut back on processed foods.
If you have a craving for salt, switch to natural seasoning and just a little salt.
