How to debloat naturally after eating too much salt

May 31, 2021 09:27 IST | By Vishakha Somani

The right amount of salt makes eatables all the more tasty and sometimes having these yummy salty snacks in moderation is just not possible. So, whether you’ve eaten one too many salty fries or finished a giant packet of namkeen, we get it and we've been there!

However, the bloating caused by consuming too much sodium can be really uncomfortable. Too much salt causes water retention and that not-so-pleasant nauseous feeling. But there are some safe ways to naturally flush the excess sodium out of your body.  

WATER IS KEY  

Nothing really beats water retention like good old water itself. Drinking lots of water will assist your kidneys in flushing the sodium out by urination. So, drink a little more than your regular water intake to get all that sodium out of your system.  

WATER-RICH FOODS 

If drinking too much water seems difficult, try eating it. Yes, you can increase your intake by consuming water-rich foods. Anything from strawberries, watermelon, oranges to lettuce, cucumber and lauki can help level up your water consumption.  

HIGH-POTASSIUM FOODS  

Apart from water, potassium can help counteract sodium. Go for bananas, oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, avocados or beans to increase your potassium intake. This mineral works alongside sodium to control, correct and maintain the fluid balance in your body.   

DO SOME CARDIO  

Another way to flush out the sodium is to just get sweaty. Going to the gym, doing cardio or just taking a brisk walk can help you sweat out the bad stuff. Just remember to stay hydrated when you work out.  

While these are great general tips, if you suffer from salt sensitivity, high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease, it is better to consult your doctor for a suitable fix.
