Overeating on These Healthy Foods? You Might Regret It
Kimchi is a quite popular type of fermented cabbage packed with vitamins A, C and beneficial probiotic bacteria. Unfortunately, it is also quite high in sodium and a single serving of 100 grams covers approximately a third of the recommended maximum sodium intake.
Too much sodium can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart failure, especially in people with salt sensitivity and hypertension.
Captain’s tip: One tablespoon of kimchi per just one meal would be enough to prevent overdosing on sodium.
