SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Herb & Body, a specialty lifestyle company, announced today the launch of the FIRST and only digital salt dispenser SMALT™. The announcement coincides with today's celebration of "World Heart Day". SMALT™ is "The Smarter Way to Salt™" and it offers consumers a simple way to measure, track and control their salt consumption.
Due to the growing emphasis on health and wellness, people are doing everything from counting calories, watching carbs, counting steps to buying health gadgets and downloading fitness apps to stay on top of their health. Part of a healthy lifestyle is also watching salt intake. Excessive sodium consumption can lead to high blood pressure and serious health issues including stroke and heart attack. 9 out of 10 Americans consume too much salt. With average American consuming twice the amount of sodium than what is recommended by the American Heart Association, excessive salt consumption is an important public health issue. Almost 80 million Americans (1 in 3) suffer from high blood pressure with another 59 million at risk. Although you cannot control all of your risk factors for high blood pressure, you can make lifestyle modifications to prevent and control high blood pressure.
"With SMALT™ for the very first time consumers will have the ability to measure, track and control their daily salt consumption with just the press of a button," according to Bipan Singh, Founder and CEO of Herb & Body.
An important feature of SMALT™ is that users can gradually lower their overall salt intake over time. Additional features include
- Option to choose between Table VS Kosher salt
- Multiple servings option
- Internal memory to store aggregate daily sodium consumption
- LCD display to remove the guess work
- Powerful battery that last up to 12 months
"Salt habits are difficult to shake and there hasn't been an easy way to monitor sodium consumption until now," said Singh. "The basic design of salt shakers has not changed since their invention in 1858. SMALT™ is the first major change in the category and it has the potential to change the way people salt on a daily basis" he added.
SMALT™ is currently available to pre-order online at www.mysmalt.com. Herb & Body is offering a special discount in celebration of Word Heart Day.
