This short article summarizes the relationship between Salt and High Blood Pressure.

Remember, your body removes unwanted fluid by filtering your blood through your kidneys. That is, the kidney sucks any extra fluid in the blood and puts it into your bladder to be removed as urine.

The result is a higher blood pressure due to the extra or excess fluid in the blood.
