Thank you very much. 

When cooking, salt is widely used to enhance the flavor of foods. It contains sodium and chloride, both of which the human body requires. 

The body requires sodium to control blood pressure and volume. It also aids in the maintenance of healthy neuron and muscle function by controlling fluid levels in the body. The chloride balances blood pH and pressure while also assisting in the production of stomach acid. 

Despite the fact that salt is required by the human body, excessive salt consumption can result in negative health conditions such as hypertension or high blood pressure, which frequently leads to heart disease, kidney illness, and stroke. Excess salt consumption can also result in calcium loss in the body. This is why it is vital to use salt sparingly rather than excessively. 

We occasionally forget to calculate the salt when cooking and end up with too much salt in the dish. In this instance, people have the option of eating the food as is or throwing it away. 

Now I'll show you a true approach that works. 

When you discover that you used too much salt while cooking, 

1. Remove the food pot from the fire (stew, soup, or any other food). 

2.Pour a tiny amount of salt on top of the flames. 

3.Return the food-filled saucepan to the heat. 

4.After a few minutes of stirring, remove the soup or stew from the heat. 

5.Taste it after 5 minutes and you will find that the amount of salt you detected earlier has been significantly reduced. 

This method is most effective when using a coal pot or firewood. If you're using a gas stove, though, it's best to light a little bit of charcoal first before attempting the aforementioned technique. 

Additionally, if you have a history of overeating salt, consider the following to reduce the quantity of salt in your body. 

1. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to allow excess salt to pass through the urine. 

2. Exercising can help you sweat out the excess salt. 

3. Consume potassium-rich foods because potassium acts as an antidote to salt and lowers blood pressure. This category includes bananas, potatoes, watermelon, mushrooms, coconut water, and a range of other foods. 

To maintain a healthy physique, I hope you follow my advice and use salt sparingly.
