2.High Blood Pressure
Nuts are not a known blood pressure booster, but the problem with consuming nut is that some of them come salted. If they are raw and unsalted, they can help lower the blood pressure. But on the other hand, some of them are salted just to improve their taste. Salting them simply means adding sodium and potassium them. The quantity added in conjunction with the sodium and potassium present in other foods we consume, will lead to a high consumption of sodium and potassium. This situation can lead to an increase in the blood pressure.
However, it’s better and preferable to consume unsalted nuts but if you are fully aware of your sodium consumption, and you have them in check, you can still consume the salted nuts.
