Benefits of Capers
Eating capers significantly boosts your intake of sodium, so people sensitive to salt should avoid eating a lot of capers. Just a tablespoon of the buds contains 238 milligrams of sodium, or 16 percent of the adequate intake of sodium. Eating foods rich in salt increase your blood pressure, and a diet rich in salt can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease. Individuals who already suffer from high blood pressure should limit their sodium intake, and should practice portion control when eating capers to avoid overconsuming salt.
