20 normotensive subjects (10 with a family history of hypertension) were investigated as to whether moderate salt restriction and/or a high potassium intake had a beneficial effect on blood pressure regulation and prevention of hypertension. In all subjects a moderate reduction of salt intake from 200 to 50 mmol/day over 2 weeks reduced the rise in blood pressure induced by various doses of noradrenaline (0.1, 0.2, and 0.4 microgram/kg/min). Furthermore, of 20 subjects 12 (8 with a family… CONTINUE READING
