Instead of Salt

6. Use garlic.

People who significantly cut back on salt could reduce their chances of developing cardiovascular disease by 25 percent, according to a report in the British Medical Journal. Furthermore, researchers found that lower salt intake could cut the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by up to 20 percent.

By using garlic instead of salt, you not only get the benefit of lower blood pressure, you also get the health perks of garlic, such as fighting cancer and possibly reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering total LDL (bad) cholesterol without affecting HDL (good) cholesterol.
