So I am brand new to Huel, this is my first day. I’ve had my first shake for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed the taste (Original flavour, still to try the banana flavour which was also part of my order).
Going forward I plan to replace my breakfast and lunch each day with Huel and have a normal meal for dinner.
I have pre-hypertension although lately my readings have been in the much higher range yet the doctor has been reluctant to put my on medication so far due to me being relatively young in my 30’s even though heart disease is rampant in my family genetics (thanks!).
The salt content seems fairly low in a 2 scoop 100g serving at 0.72g. For example if i try and cook a nice healthy soup it probably is healthy for me in many respects except i always end up seasoning it with stock cubes and extra salt just to make it taste good (I just cannot enjoy it otherwise) so for me when I compare this the comparatively lower salt content in a 100g serving of Huel I feel like a Huel meal might be a good way for me to help lower my sodium intake.
I am just wondering if anyone has had any success with trying to lower blood pressure on a Huel diet (not necessarily a 100% exclusive Huel diet) or otherwise. I am still slightly cautious that the salt content in Huel is potentially still not low enough for someone on High blood pressure so I guess what I really want to Know is if Huel would be considered more positive or negative for this condition?
