Salt reprograms the brain and leads to hypertension - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Doctors have repeatedly told us that eating too much salt increases the risk of high blood pressure on the rest of his life. However, only recently, scientists have finally found out why this is happening. According to experts, the salt is able to literally "reprogram" the brain and prevents it from properly regulate blood pressure.

About their research, scientists from McGill University shared the pages of the scientific journal Neuron. This article reports about the dangers of salt, resulting in a series of experiments in mice have shown that excessive use of the ingredient for cooking causes changes in the brain.

As part of the experiments, the researchers gave laboratory mice large amounts of salt and try to see to it, as will change the behavior of mice with such kind of diet. In addition to severe thirst, which tested the mouse after salty meal, it was noted that in the brains of mice, some changes in chemical reactions.

As explained in the pages of a scientific journal, increasing the amount of salt intake by mice was accompanied by a work stoppage of rodent brain responsible for control of blood pressure in the body, which is regulated by specific neurons.

Researchers suggest that mice consuming too much salt content increased vasopressin. This hormone is produced by neurons and participates in maintaining the constancy of the water-salt balance in the body and constricts blood vessels, impairing the permeability of blood through the body and increasing blood pressure.



"We have found that excessive amounts of salt intake causes biochemical changes in the neurons that secrete vasopressin into the circulatory system. These changes prevent the inhibition of certain neurons in other cells ", - says head of research Charles Bork.

The researchers believe that a similar reaction occurs with the human body. The further study of this problem will help to develop more effective ways to combat high blood pressure. More specifically, these studies may help in the development of drugs that can reduce the amount of release of vasopressin into the circulatory system of the body.

In the meantime, these drugs do not become widely available, researchers are advised to reduce salt intake daily volume.
