The swelling that you might be experiencing in different parts of your body can surprisingly occur due to the overconsumption of salt or foods high in salt.
So, you are probably going beyond the recommended salt intake and consuming more than 5 g a day. The latter can cause the fluids to accumulate in your body, which eventually leads to swelling.
What you should do: Try as much as you can to limit your salt consumption. And if it’s possible, you can also replace it with herbs and spices.
