Switching over to low-sodium food products may do more than simply lower your blood pressure: it may also benefit bone health by reducing calcium loss, according to findings published online by the British Journal of Nutrition.

The researchers theorized that this additional benefit may be the result of a decrease in urinary calcium excretion when subjects were on the low-sodium Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. Although the subjects’ salt reduction appears to have long-term effects on bone health, the researchers called for more research to confirm the lifetime benefits of a DASH-type diet.
