Limit intake of salt, also use better natural salt, which you can get in health food stores or conveniently order online.

Also limite intake of sugar, and try to avoid refined sugar. Again, important elements are no longer included, so that the sugar is extremely harmful.

It contains no calories or sugar, regulates blood pressure and blood sugar levels. By the way, you can use it to redue your weight. I mean stevia in the form of dried or powdered plants or an extract from the whole leaf of the plant, definitely not the processed Stevia product.
