Making Your Diet Low-Sodium With PB2
Today, the average American consumes more than five teaspoons of sodium a day, around 20 times more than our bodies need. Our bodies only need 1/4 teaspoon of salt a day. While sodium is an essential mineral for maintaining proper fluid balance in the body, we all know that too much of a good thing is never good. Consuming a high amount of sodium puts us at risk for heart disease and stroke, and many other health concerns. Consuming a diet low in sodium, on the other hand, may reduce blood pressure and risk of cancer while also improving your diet’s overall quality.
If you think you’re thinking about switching to a low sodium diet, you should be aware that many foods you would expect to have low amounts of sodium actually have high amounts. High sodium foods include most processed meats like ham, sausage, luncheon meats, frozen foods, chips, and even peanut butter. Well, peanut butter used to be a high sodium food – until PB2 Pure Peanut Powder came along!
PB2 Pure takes our original PB2 formula and takes it to its simple core. A single-ingredient product, PB2 pure is 100% all-natural roasted peanuts with no added sugar, salt, or preservatives. As a one ingredient item, PB2 Pure has 0% sodium, 90% less fat, and 70% fewer calories, all while still preserving the delightful and delicious peanut butter flavor. Additionally, PB2 pure still packs a protein punch with 6 grams of protein per 13-gram serving.
